NAME

       streamer - record audio and/or video

SYNOPSIS

       streamer [ options ]

DESCRIPTION

       streamer  reads  audio  and/or video data from /dev/video0 and /dev/dsp
       and writes the data to the disk.  Various output formats are supported.
       Start  streamer  with  '-h'  for a list of options and supported output
       formats.

       streamer will use the file extention of the output file name to  figure
       which  format to use.  You need the -f/-F options only if the extention
       allows more than one format.  If you get the "neither audio  nor  video
       format  specified/found" message and don't know why, you can enable the
       debug output (-d switch) to see what is going on.

       You can safely stop the recording at any time  with  Ctrl+C.   streamer
       will  catch  the  signal and stop recording correctly (i.e. write movie
       file headers) before exiting.

EXAMPLES

       streamer -o foobar.jpeg
              write a single jpeg file.

       streamer -o quicktime.mov -f yuv2 -F stereo -r 12 -t 0:10
              record a short quicktime movie.
