zvbid - VBI proxy daemon
zvbid [ options ]
zvbid is a proxy for VBI devices, i.e. it forwards one or more VBI data streams to one or more connected clients and manages channel change requests.
-dev path Path of a device from which to read data. This argument can be given several times with different devices. -buffers count Number of buffers to allocate for capturing VBI raw data from devices which support streaming (currently only video4linux, rev. 2) A higher number of buffers can prevent data loss in case of high latency. The downside is higher memory consumption (typically 65kB per buffer.) Default count is 8, maximum is 32. -nodetach Daemon process remains connected to the terminal from which it was started (e.g. so that you can stop it by pressing Control-C keys). Intended for trouble shooting only. -kill Terminates a proxy daemon running for the given device. -debug level Enables debug output: 0= off(default); 1= general messages; In addition 2, 4, 8, ... can be added to enable debug output for various categories. -syslog level Enables syslog output. -loglevel level Log file level -logfile path Path to the log file. -maxclients count Max. number of clients which are allowed to connect simultaneously. -help Print a short description of all command line options.
