NAME
       tcmodinfo - Get and Set information in transcode	modules

SYNOPSIS
       tcmodinfo [ -i name ] [ -m path ] [ -t type ] [ -M param	] [ -C param ]
       [ -s socket ] [ -p ] [ -d verbosity ] [ -v ]

COPYRIGHT

DESCRIPTION
       tcmodinfo loads a supplied transcode(1) module and prints its parame-
       ters, or	inquiry	about default settings.	It can also connect to
       transcode through a socket to do	runtime	configuration of transcode and
       its filters.  Anyway, this last feature may be moved to some other
       helper program in future	releases.

OPTIONS
       -i name
	      Specify the name of the module. Name is specified	without	the
	      prefix (i.e., filter_)_ and without the suffix .so So if you
	      want information about filter_smooth.so, just supply smooth

       -m path
	      Look in Path instead of the compiled-in module path for a	mod-
	      ule.

       -t type
	      Specify the Type of module to load. Default is filter modules.
	      In current (1.1.0) release, tcmodinfo support 'filter', 'encode'
	      and 'multiplex' module types. More types will be added in	future
	      releases,	to cover all the transcode module range.

       -M parameter
	      Print out	the default setting of given parameter of a given (use
	      -i/-t options too) module. If parameter isn't known, nothing
	      will be print out.
	      Caution: -M can't	be used	together with -C

       -C configuration	string
	      Request to configure the module using given configuration
	      string.  Meaning of configuration	string is of course module de-
	      pendent, but format is always
	      param1:key1=val1:param2:param3:key2=val2
	      This option is used for debug purposes, you usually shouldn't
	      need it.
	      Caution: -C can't	be used	together with -M

       -s socket
	      Connect to socket	socket.	You can	use this socket	to do runtime
	      configuration of transcode. For all the boring details about the
	      socket protocol have a look at /docs/filter-socket.txt.
	      transcode	has to be started with the --socket option to open the
	      socket.

       -d verbosity
	      Specify the verbosiness level to use, like transcode does. De-
	      fault value is 1 (TC_INFO	verbosiness).

       -p     Print the	compiled-in module path	and exit.

       -v     Print version information	and exit.

EXAMPLES
       The command

       tcmodinfo -i smooth

       prints information about	the smooth filter.

       tcmodinfo -i levels -t filter

       same as above for levels	filter (-t filter it's the default)

       tcmodinfo -i raw	-t multiplex

       same as above for raw multiplexor

       tcmodinfo -i xvid -t encode

       same as above for XviD encoder

       transcode --socket /tmp/tc-socket &
       echo help | tcmodinfo -s	/tmp/tc-socket

       prints the socket help text and exits.

       tcmodinfo -s /tmp/tc-socket

       Will drop you into an interactive "shell" where you can talk to the
       socket.
