tcmodinfo − Get and Set information in transcode modules
tcmodinfo [ -i name ] [ -m path ] [ -t type ] [ -M param ] [ -C param ] [ -s socket ] [ -p ] [ -d verbosity ] [ -v ]
tcmodinfo is Copyright (C) by Tilmann Bitterberg/Transcode Team
tcmodinfo loads a supplied transcode(1) module and prints its parameters, or inquiry about default settings. It can also connect to transcode through a socket to do runtime configuration of transcode and its filters. Anyway, this last feature may be moved to some other helper program in future releases.
Specify the name of the module. Name is specified without the prefix (i.e., filter_)_ and without the suffix .so So if you want information about filter_smooth.so, just supply smooth
Look in Path instead of the compiled-in module path for a module.
Specify the Type of module to load. Default is filter modules. In current (1.1.0) release, tcmodinfo support ’filter’, ’encode’ and ’multiplex’ module types. More types will be added in future releases, to cover all the transcode module range.
Print out the default setting
of given parameter of a given (use -i/-t options too)
module. If parameter isn’t known, nothing will be
Caution: -M can’t be used together with -C
-C configuration string
Request to configure the module
using given configuration string. Meaning of configuration
string is of course module dependent, but format is always
This option is used for debug purposes, you usually shouldn’t need it.
Caution: -C can’t be used together with -M
Connect to socket socket. You can use this socket to do runtime configuration of transcode. For all the boring details about the socket protocol have a look at /docs/filter−socket.txt. transcode has to be started with the −−socket option to open the socket.
Specify the verbosiness level to use, like transcode does. Default value is 1 (TC_INFO verbosiness).
Print the compiled-in module path and exit.
Print version information and exit.
tcmodinfo −i smooth
prints information about the smooth filter.
tcmodinfo −i levels -t filter
same as above for levels filter (-t filter it’s the default)
tcmodinfo −i raw -t multiplex
same as above for raw multiplexor
tcmodinfo −i xvid -t encode
same as above for XviD encoder
−−socket /tmp/tc−socket &
echo help | tcmodinfo −s /tmp/tc−socket
prints the socket help text and exits.
tcmodinfo −s /tmp/tc−socket
Will drop you into an interactive "shell" where you can talk to the socket.
