       tcmodinfo - Get and Set information in transcode modules


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


       tcmodinfo is Copyright (C) by Tilmann Bitterberg/Transcode Team


       tcmodinfo loads a supplied transcode(1) module and prints its parameters, 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.


       -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
    , just supply smooth

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

       -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 dependent, but format is always
              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. Default value is 1
              (TC_INFO verbosiness).

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

       -v     Print version information and exit.


       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.
