NAME

       vlc, qvlc, svlc, nvlc, rvlc, cvlc - the VLC media player

SYNOPSIS

       vlc [OPTIONS] [ITEMS]...

DESCRIPTION

       This  manual  page  documents  briefly  the  VLC  multimedia player and
       server.

OPTIONS

       VLC follows the usual  GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long  options
       starting  with two dashes (‘-’).  For a precise description of options,
       please use "vlc --help".

       The complete list of VLC options depends on what plugins are  installed
       because  they  automatically  add  their  own  options. Please use "vlc
       --longhelp --advanced" for a complete list of available options.

ITEMS

       VLC recognizes several URL-style items:

       *.mpg, *.vob, *.avi, *.mp3, *.ogg
              Various multimedia file formats

       dvd://[<device>][@<raw device>][@[<title>][:[<chapter>][:<angle>]]]
              DVD device (for instance  dvd:///dev/dvd).  The  raw  device  is
              optional and must have been prepared beforehand.

       vcd://[<device>][@{E|P|E|T|S}[<number>]]
              VCD device (for instance vcd:///dev/cdrom).

       udp://[@[<multicast address>][:<local port>]]
              UDP  stream,  such  as  one sent by VLS or another VLC.  Usually
              "udp://" is enough.

       http://<server address>[:<server port>]/[<file>]
              HTTP stream

       rtsp://<server address>[:<server port>]/<stream name>
              RTSP Video On Demand stream

       vlc://<command>
              Execute a playlist command. Commands are: pause (pause execution
              of other items), and quit (close VLC).
