       mixxx  does  not  have  AAC  (M4A)  playback  support  enabled by default due to licensing
       restrictions. To enable playback of unprotected AAC (M4A) files, you can build mixxx  from
       source. See also:

       Mixxx is designed to be as user-friendly as possible. As such, its  command  line  options
       are  only  useful  for  development  or  debugging, as they make these tasks easier. mixxx
       accepts the following case-sensitive options on the command-line:

                 Load the specified music file(s) at start-up. Each  file  you  specify  will  be
                 loaded  into  the  next virtual deck. Supported file types: mp3, ogg, aiff, aif,
                 wav, flac

                 --resourcePath           <PATH>
                 Top-level directory where Mixxx should look for its resource files such as  MIDI
                 mappings, overriding the default installation location.

                 --pluginPath           <PATH>
                 Top-level directory where Mixxx should look for sound source plugins in addition
                 to default locations.

                 --settingsPath           <PATH>
                 Top-level directory where Mixxx should look for settings.

                 Causes Mixxx to display/log all of the MIDI/HID controller data it receives  and
                 script functions it loads.

                 Enables  developer-mode.  Includes  extra  log info, stats on performance, and a
                 Developer tools menu.

                 --locale           <LOCALE>
                 Use a custom locale for loading translations (e.g 'fr').

                 --f           --fullScreen
                 Starts mixxx in full-screen mode.

                 -h           --help
                 Display a help message and exit.



       The manual in pdf format should have come with your copy of mixxx,  however  there  is  an
       online copy available:
        (link to URL .


                 The directory where mixxx stores its user data.

                 The mixxx configuration file.

                 The  mixxx  library  file.  Warning: Deleting your library will lose all of your
                 metadata. This includes saved  hotcues,  loops,  comments,  ratings,  and  other
                 library  related  metadata. Only delete your library if you are fine with losing

                 The directory where mixxx stores any additional analysis  data  that  can't  fit
                 into  the  library  file.  Currently  only  the waveforms are saved here. If you
                 delete your library file you should also delete this  folder  as  the  waveforms
                 around 1MB each and are unusable without the library that generated them.

                 The  directory  where  mixxx stores user controller mappings.  All mappings that
                 are created with the MIDI learning wizard are saved here. If there are  mappings
                 for a controller in the default resource directory and this directory mixxx will
                 use the one saved here.

                 The directory where mixxx stores its  default  resources  like  skins,  MIDI/HID
                 controller mappings, keyboard mappings, and translations.
