tcmodinfo - Get and Set information in filter modules
tcmodinfo is Copyright (C) by Tilmann Bitterberg
Loads a supplied transcode(1) filtermodule and prints its parameters. It can
also connect to transcode through a socket to do runtime configuration of
transcode and its filters.
- -i name
Specify the name of the filter. Name is specified without the prefix
and without the suffix
So if you want information about filter_smooth.so, just supply
- -m Path
Look in Path instead of the compiled-in module path for a module.
- -s socket
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.
Print the compiled-in module path and exit.
Print version information and exit.
tcmodinfo -i smooth
prints information about the smooth filter.
transcode --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.
