NAME

       aaxine - an ASCII art video player

SYNOPSIS

       aaxine  [aalib-options] [-A<audio-driver>] [-a<audio-channel>] [-R<rec-
       by>] [MRL...]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page explains the aaxine program. Aaxine, is an aalib based
       frontend for libxine, a versatile video/multimedia player.

       aaxine is for those who don’t have a high end video card, but just want
       to watch DVDs on their good old vt100 ;-)

       Like xine, aaxine plays MPEG system (audio  and  video)  streams,  mpeg
       elementary  streams  (e.g.  .mp3 or .mpv files), avi files (using win32
       codecs or ffmpeg), (S)VCDs, DVDs and  many  more.  In  short,  anything
       that’s supported by xine-lib.

OPTIONS

       The  program  follows  usual GNU command line syntax, with long options
       starting with two dashes (‘-’).  A  summary  of  options  are  included
       below.    For   a   complete   description,   see  README  and  FAQ  in
       /usr/share/doc/xine-ui or on the xine home page.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options and available output drivers  (plugins).

       A big bunch of these options is provided by aalib. Please refer to your
       aalib documentation for those!

       The remaining  options,  labelled  AAXINE  options:  when  listed  with
       "aaxine --help", are explained here.

       -A, --audio-driver <drv>
              Use  given  audio  driver.  Available drivers can be listed with
              "aaxine --help"

       -a, --audio-channel <num>
              Use given audio channel. Channels are sequentially numbered from
              0 for first audio track.

       -R, --recognize-by [option]
              Determine  the  method  used  to recognize stream type. Possible
              options are:
              ‘default’: by content, then by extension,
              ‘revert’: by extension, then by content,
              ‘content’: only by content,
              ‘extension’: only by extension.
              If -R  is  given  without  an  additional  option,  ‘revert’  is
              selected.

MRLs

       MRLs  are  similar to URLs in your web browser. They describe the media
       to read from. valid MRLs  may  be  plain  file  names  or  one  of  the
       following:
       file:<path>
       fifo:<path>
       stdin:/
       dvd:/<title>.<part>
       vcd:/<tracknumber>
       tcp://<host>:<port>
       rtp://<host>:<port>
       udp://<host>:<port>
       mms://<host>...
       http://<host>...
       cdda://<tracknumber>

       Several  MRLs may be specified in order to play a number of consecutive
       streams. Additional input plugins will provide  additional  MRL  types.
       The ones listed above are available with stock libxine...
       After a delimiting # you can add several stream parameters:

       novideo
              video will be ignored

       noaudio
              audio will be ignored

       nospu  subpictures will be ignored

       demux:<demux name>
              specify the demux plugin to use

       volume:<level>
              set audio volume

       compression:<level>
              set audio dynamic range compression

       <config entry>:<config value>
              assign a new value to any config entry

CONTROL KEYS

       Many  features  can  be  controlled  by  pressing control keys. The Key
       bindings are:

       <RETURN> / R
              Play

       <SPACE> / P
              Pause

       0      Jump to start of current stream

       1 .. 9 Jump to 10%..90% of current stream

       <PgUp> Jump to previous stream in playlist

       <PgDown>
              Jump to next stream in playlist

       +      Select next audio channel (may take up to a few seconds to  take
              effect)

       -      Select prev audio channel

       Q      Exit.

BUGS

       none,  of  course  ;-)  Well,  there are surely a few of those. You can
       probably best ask for support (and report bugs) on our mailing list  at
       <xine-user@lists.sf.net>.
