       freetuxtv - Internet television and radio player


       freetuxtv [options]


       This manual page briefly documents the freetuxtv player.

       freetuxtv  is  a  video player based on LibVLC allowing you to watch and record TV on your
       PC. A large database (growing daily) of free WebTV/WebRadio/WebCam channels in  more  than
       20  languages  is  accessible. You can also play streams from ISP television service if it
       provides this feature. Moreover, it is also possible to easily program your  recording  on
       each channel with different transcoding formats.


       These  programs  follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
       two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.

       -h, --help
