       cubemap - scalable video reflector, designed to be used with VLC


       cubemap [options] [FILE]


       cubemap  is  a  high-performance, high-availability video reflector, specifically made for
       use with VLC.

       · High-performance, through a design with multiple  worker  threads,  epoll  and  sendfile
         (yes,  sendfile);  a  2GHz  quadcore  can  saturate  10 gigabit Ethernet, given a modern
         kernel, a modern NIC and the right kernel tuning.

       · High-availability. You can change any part of the configuration (and even upgrade  to  a
         newer  version  of Cubemap) by changing cubemap.config and sending a SIGHUP; all clients
         will continue as if nothing  had  happened  (unless  you  delete  the  stream  they  are
         watching, of course).  Cubemap also survives the encoder dying and reconnecting.

       · Per-stream fwmark support, for TCP pacing through tc (separate config needed).

       · Support  for  setting  max  pacing  rate  through the fq packet scheduler (obsoletes the
         previous point, but depends on Linux 3.13 or newer).

       · Reflects anything VLC can reflect over HTTP, even the muxes VLC has problems  reflecting
         itself (in particular, FLV).

       · IPv4 support. Yes, Cubemap even supports (some) legacy protocols.


       --test-config, -t
              tests the config and exits

       FILE   configuration file (defaults to cubemap.config in the current directory)
