NAME

       kateenc - create Kate streams from text input

SYNOPSIS

       kateenc  [-hVM]  [-o  outfile]  [-l language] [-c category] [-s serial] [-C tag=value] [-R
       threshold] [-K threshold] -t filetype [ infile ]

DESCRIPTION

       kateenc creates Kate streams from input files  (SubRip  SRT  subtitles,  LRC  lyrics,  and
       libkate's  custom  description  language).   When  saved  to  an  Ogg  stream (the default
       behavior), a Kate stream may then be merged with other Ogg streams (eg,  a  Theora  video)
       using the oggz tools.

OPTIONS

       -h     Show command line help.

       -V     Show version information.

       -M     Allow simple HTML-like markup in SRT files. If this parameter is used, strings such
              as "<i>" will be interpreted to mean italics, rather than appear as such. Note that
              various players interpret a slightly different set of HTML tags, and some do not.

       -o outfile
              Write  the  output  Kate  stream  to  the  given file name (writes to stdout if not
              specified).

       -l language
              Sets the language for the stream (default is the language specified in  the  input,
              or none).

       -c category
              Sets  the  category for the stream (default is the category specified in the input,
              or none).

       -s serial
              Sets the serial number for the output Kate stream (does not apply to raw streams).

       -C tag=value
              Adds a comment to encode into the output Kate stream. The comment must  be  of  the
              form  tag=value, and comply with the Vorbis comment rules (eg, tag is composed of a
              particular subset of ASCII characters, and value is valid  UTF-8).  Note  that  you
              might  have  to  escape  or quote the comment for it to be seen as a single command
              line parameter.

       -t filetype
              Specifies the type of the input (srt, lrc, kate)

       -R threshold
              Use repeat packets, with the given threshold (in seconds).  Data  packets  will  be
              repeated at intervals of roughly threshold seconds, while active.

       -K threshold
              Use  keepalive  packets,  with the given threshold (in seconds).  Keepalive packets
              will be emitted when no  other  packet  has  been  emitted  for  roughly  threshold
              seconds.

EXAMPLES

       Create a Kate stream for Welsh subtitles from a SubRip file:

           kateenc -t srt -l cy -c SUB -o output.ogg input.srt
