tcmodinfo [ -i name ] [ -m path ] [ -s socket ] [ -p ] [ -v ]
tcmodinfo is Copyright (C) by Tilmann Bitterberg
tcmodinfo 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 filter_ and without the suffix .so So if you want information about fil- ter_smooth.so, just supply smooth
-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.
-p Print the compiled-in module path and exit.
-v 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.
