tcscan(1)		    General Commands Manual		     tcscan(1)

NAME
       tcscan  -  scan multimedia streams from medium and print	information on
       the standard output

SYNOPSIS
       tcscan -i name [	-x codec ] [ -e	r[,b[,c]] ] [ -b bitrate ] [ -w	num  ]
	      [	-f rate	] [ -d verbosity ] [ -v	]

COPYRIGHT
       tcscan is Copyright (C) by Thomas Oestreich.

DESCRIPTION
       tcscan is part of and usually called by transcode.
       However,	it can also be used independently.
       tcscan  reads source (from stdin	if not explicitely defined) and	prints
       on the standard output.

OPTIONS
       -i name
	      Specify input source.  If	ommited, stdin is assumed.
	      You can specify a	file, directory, device,  mountpoint  or  host
	      address  as  input source.  tcscan usually handles the different
	      types correctly.

       -d level
	      With this	option you can specify a bitmask to  enable  different
	      levels  of  verbosity  (if  supported).  You can combine several
	      levels by	adding the corresponding values:

	      QUIET	    0

	      INFO	    1

	      DEBUG	    2

	      STATS	    4

	      WATCH	    8

	      FLIST	   16

	      VIDCORE	   32

	      SYNC	   64

	      COUNTER	  128

	      PRIVATE	  256

       -v     Print version information	and exit.

NOTES
       tcscan is a front end for scaning various source	types and is  used  in
       transcode's  import modules.  tcscan does a complete scan of the	source
       to gather information.

EXAMPLES
       The command tcscan -i foo.avi prints header information about the  AVI-
       file  itself  and  lists	 details on the	video and audio	content, e.g.,
       keyframes, chunk	structure.

       The command cat audio.pcm | tcscan -x pcm -e 48000,16,2	simply	deter-
       mines the playtime lenghth of the raw audio stream.

       The  command tcscan -x mp3 -i input.mp3 will print the number of	chunks
       in the MP3 file and the average bitrate.
