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>.
