SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

       This manpage lists some tips for intermedia to advanced users of RoarAudio.

CONTROLLING ROARD

       RoarAudio  supports  a  lot of things you can change on the fly.  This includes the volume
       for each stream as you may allready noticed: If you cange the volume within a player  only
       this stream is changed, other streams keep there loudness. There a a lot other things that
       can be changed on the fly.  To do this there is a tool called roarctl(1). You may want  to
       play around a bit with it. A good start are to try those two commands:
        roarctl --help
        roarctl allinfo

       The  later  one will show you all information current available of the server it self, the
       clients and the streams. This may include a lot of information.

SERVER ADDRESS

       There a serverel types of server addresses based on  the  protocol  used  to  communicate.
       This lists the corrently implemented types in order of importance:

       /path/to/sock
              Path to UNIX Domain Socket.  Example:
               /tmp/roar

       host, host:port
              This  is  used for connections over TCP/IP.  If port is omitted the default port is
              used.  Examples:
               audio.homeserver.local
               localhost:7564

       node::, node::object, ::object, ::
              This is the way to specify a DECnet connection to node node's object  object.  Both
              may  be  omitted  to  use  defaults.  Default  node  name is local hosts node name.
              Examples:
               mynode::
               ::roar
               yournode::yourroard

       +fork  This starts a new roard for every roar_connect(3).  This is used internaly  by  the
              lib to emulate EsounD's fallback.

ENVIRONMENT

       ROAR_SERVER
              This  varibale contains the default server address. If some client does not allow a
              user to set a server address or to set a default value this  one  come  into  play.
              Examples:
               ROAR_SERVER=some.host
               ROAR_SERVER=another.host:port
               ROAR_SERVER=node::
               ROAR_SERVER=/tmp/roar
