Kaffeine is a media player. What makes it different from the others is its excellent support of digital TV (DVB). Kaffeine has user-friendly interface, so that even first time users can start immediately playing their movies: from DVD (including DVD menus, titles, chapters, etc.), VCD, or a file. Kaffeine uses libVLC as video/audio play backend.
-d --debug Enable all debug messages. Please notice that Kaffeine also allows fine-tuning debug messages, by enabling messages per category, by using the environment var: QT_LOGGING_RULES=kaffeine.category.debug=true where category can be: cam for dvb CAM logs dev for dvb device and libdvbv5 logs dvbsi for dvb MPEG-TS SI parsing logs epg for dvb EPG logs dvb for other dvb logs config for configuration logs mediawidget for media widget logs playlist for playlist logs sql for SQL lite logs vlc for libVlc logs --tempfile The files/URLs opened by the application will be deleted after use -f --fullscreen Start in full screen mode. When in full screen mode, all menus are hidden by default. In order to unhide the menus, move the mouse to the menu locations, e. g. to the top/bottom or left position of the screen. -m --minimal Start in minimal mode. In minimal mode, the window decoration with the title bar is shown. All other menus are hidden by default. In order to unhide the menus, move the mouse to the menu locations, e. g. to the top/bottom or left position of the Kaffeine window. Starts in minimal mode -t --alwaysontop Tells the window manager to start Kaffeine main window always on top of other windows. This option can be disabled later via the window manager, usually by clicking the title bar with the right mouse button and deselecting the always on top button box. --aspectratio aspect_ratio Forces Kaffeine to start with an specific aspect ratio, disabling the automatic mode. This can be useful on wide and ultra-wide monitors, where the user always want to see video in full screen mode using the maximum possible resolution. Valid values are: 1:1, 4:3, 5:4, 16:9, 16:10, 2.21:1, 2.35:1 and 2.39:1. If an invalid value is passed, or if this option is not used, it will default to automatic mode. --audiocd Play Audio CD --videocd Play Video CD --dvd Play DVD --dumpdvb Dump dvb data (debug option) --channel name / number Play TV channel --tv channel (deprecated option) --lastchannel Play last tuned TV channel files Files or URLs to play
Kaffeine uses the file scanfile.dvb with a list of known channels per locality and per Satellite (for DVB-S). When either new channels are added on some City, or when new Satellite beams are added, which are not available in Kaffeine, either use dvbv5-scan or w_scan to generate a new file (in the latter case, converted to the proper format using dvb-format-convert), and submit it to <firstname.lastname@example.org>, with the subject “[PATCH] dtv-scan-tables: some description”. The new patch will be added to scanfile.dvb and the updated file will be available to be updated from the Internet in the Kaffeine application.
