NAME

       gmediarender - UPNP-AV renderer daemon

SYNOPSIS

       gmediarender [options] files...

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the gmediarender command.

       gmediarender is a daemon which acts as a UPNP-AV renderer on the local network.  It can be
       controlled from a UPNP-AV control point to play media files from a  UPNP-AV  media  server
       through an audio device on the local system.

OPTIONS

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

   Application options:
       -d, --daemon
              Runs the program as a daemon.

       -f, --friendly-name <name>
              Friendly name to advertise on the network.

              Usually, it is desirable for the  renderer  to  show  up  on  controllers  under  a
              recognisable and unique name. This is the option to set that name.

       -I, --ip-address <ip-address>
              The local IP address the service is running and advertised on.

              This  can  only  be  a  single  address, and must be explicitly specified (i.e. not
              0.0.0.0).

       -p, --port <port>
              Port to listen to. [49152..65535].

              libupnp does not use SO_REUSEADDR, so it  might  be  necessary  to  increment  this
              number.

       -P, --pid-file <pidfile>
              Name of the file which the process ID should be written to.

       -u, --uuid <uuid>
              UUID to advertise on the network in the form user:group.

              This  sets  the UPNP UUID that is advertised and used by controllers to distinguish
              different renderers.  Usually, gmediarender uses a built-in static  id.   If  there
              are  multiple  renderers running on the local network, they will all share the same
              static ID.  With this option, each renderer can be given its own id.   One  way  to
              generate a UUID is to create a UUID once by running the uuidgen tool.

   Audio options:
       --gstout-audiosink <sink>
              Set the audio sink.

       --gstout-audiodevice <device>
              Set the audio device.

              The  --gstout-audio...  options  allow the user to configure where the sound output
              from gmediarender is sent.  The correct values will depend on which method of audio
              output (e.g. ALSA) is being used.

       --gstout-initial-volume-db <volume>
              Sets the initial volume on startup in decibels.

              Values  range  from 0 (maximum volume) to -60 (minimum volume. The decibel scale is
              non-linear: -20db represents roughly half volume.  The default value is 0.

              Note that this does not influence the hardware (e.g. ALSA) volume level,  but  only
              internal  attenuation.   It  is  advisable  to  set the hardware level to 100 where
              possible.

       --list-outputs
              List available output modules and exit.

       -o, --output <module>
              Output module to use.

              Use --output to obtain a list of valid modules.

   Debug options:
       --dump-devicedesc
              Dump device descriptor XML and exit.

       --dump-connmgr-scpd
              Dump Connection Manager service description XML and exit.

       --dump-control-scpd
              Dump Rendering Control service description XML and exit.

       --dump-transport-scpd
              Dump A/V Transport service description XML and exit.

       --logfile <logfile>
              Name of a file to log output of the program to.

              To log to the terminal use use --logfile devstdout This file can  get  quite  large
              over time, so it is only recommended to use this option for debugging purposes.

   Help options
       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       --help-all
              Show all help options.

       --help-gstout
              Show GStreamer Output Options.

       --help-gst
              Show GStreamer Options.

       -v, --version
              Show the program version.
