NAME

       distmp3 - client for distributed mp3-encoding across multiple hosts on a network

SYNOPSIS

       distmp3 [-p port] [-s datasize] [-d debug] [-df debugfile] remotehost wav-file mp3-file

DESCRIPTION

       distmp3  is  the  client  part  of  distmp3, a utility for distributed mp3-encoding across
       multiple hosts on a network.

       The client connects to a remote host on port 4600 and a handshake occurs.

       If the handshake goes well, the client will open the wav-file for reading and the mp3-file
       for writing.

       The  client  then  starts  sending  raw  data  from the wav-file across the network to the
       daemon, which sends it back to the client who writes it down in a file.

       Default  values  are  used  if  none  specified,  and  those  defaults   are   read   from
       /etc/distmp3/distmp3.conf

OPTIONS

       -p port
              The port on remotehost to connect to.

       -s datasize
              The datachunksize to use when sending data to the distmp3host server.

       -d debug
              If 1 then debugmessages will be printed on stdout, else suppressed.

       -df debugfile
              If defined debugmessages will be printed to file debugfile

       remotehost
              The DNS hostname or IP address of the remote machine running distmp3host.

       wav-file
              The local WAV format file to be encoded on remotehost.

       mp3-file.
              The  desired  local  destination  for  the  finished mp3 file. If this file already
              exists and is writable, it will be overwritten. If it is not writable, distmp3 will
              exit with an error.
