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


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

       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


       -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.


       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.


       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 determines 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.
