NAME
       tcdecode	 - read multimedia streams from medium, decode to
       raw format and print to standard output

SYNOPSIS

       tcdecode
	      -i name [ -x codec ] [ -t package ] [ -g WxH ] [ -s
	      c,f,r  ] [ -C s-e ] [ -y codec ] [ -Y ] [ -Q mode ]
	      [ -A flag ] [ -d verbosity ] [ -v ]

DESCRIPTION

       tcdecode is part of and usually called by transcode.
       However, it can also be used independently.
       tcdecode reads  source  (from  stdin  if	 not  explicitely
       defined) and prints on the standard output.

OPTIONS

       -i name
	      Specify	input	source.	  If  ommited,	stdin  is
	      assumed.	tcdecode reads streams from file or  from
	      stdin.

       -g WxH video frame width and height [720x576]

       -C s-e decode  and  print  out  only  this  frame interval
	      (video) or bytes (audio) [all].

       -x codec
	      source codec,  if	 not  detected	of  reading  from
	      stdin.  This  option also specifies video and audio
	      context of the source for decoding. Currently, sup-
	      ported parameter for codec are

	       mp3	     MPEG audio	     (lame)
	       ac3	     AC3 audio	     (libac3)
	       a52	     A52 audio	     (liba52)
	       dv	  Digital Video DV   (libdv)
	       mpeg2	     MPEG video	     (libmpeg2)
	       yv12	     Y'CbCr YUV
	       af6audio	     audio API	     (avifile)
	       af6video	     video API	     (avifile)
	       mov	     Quicktime	     (libquicktime)

       -t package
	      Currently	 only  argument	 supported is "lavc". Use
	      the codec by -x from this package.  Available  (-x)
	      codecs  for  lavc	 are:  mpeg2, divx3, divx, divx4,
	      mp42, mjpg, rv10, svq1, svq3, vp3, 4xm, wmv1, wmv2,
	      hfyu, indeo3, h263p, h263i

       -y codec
	      target codec.  tcdecode  only decodes to raw format
	      suitable for transcode. Valid option parameter  for
	      codec are

	       rgb		RGB 24bit
	       yv12	       Y'CbCr YUV
	       yuy2		4:2:2 YUV
	       pcm    SIGNED LE 16bit PCM

       -s c,f,r
	      audio gain for AC3 downmixing [1.0,1.0,1.0]

       -Y     decoded  Digital	Video  (raw) YUV frame is in YUY2
	      (packet) format using libdv.  Downsample	frame  to
	      YV12.  PAL  users should compile libdv with --with-
	      pal-yuv=YV12 to avoid this option [off]

       -A flag
	      audio flag for AC3/A52 decoder  [none].  This  flag
	      determines  the  down-mixing  configuration.  Valid
	      choices for flag are determined  by  the	following
	      bits set:

	       drc off	   1
	       demux	   2
	       dolby off   4

       Add those numbers to turn multiple options on.

       -Q mode
	      decoding	quality.  Certain  codecs,  e.g., DV with
	      libdv allow for changing this parameter if speed is
	      prefered	 over	quality.    Valid  parameter  are
	      1=fastest-5=best [5].

       -d level
	      With this option	you  can  specify  a  bitmask  to
	      enable  different	 levels	 of  verbosity	(if  sup-
	      ported).	You can combine several levels by  adding
	      the corresponding values:

	       QUIET	   0
	       INFO	   1
	       DEBUG	   2
	       STATS	   4
	       WATCH	   8
	       FLIST	  16
	       VIDCORE	  32
	       SYNC	  64
	       COUNTER	 128
	       PRIVATE	 256

       -v     Print version information and exit.

NOTES

       tcdecode	 is  a front end for decoding various sources and
       is used in transcode(1)'s import modules.

EXAMPLES

       The command
	      tcdecode -i foo.mp3 -x mp3
       decodes an MPEG audio stream and prints raw  PCM	 data  to
       stdout.

       The command
	      tcextract -i foo.avi -x mp3 | tcdecode -x mp3
       extracts an MPEG audio track from the AVI-file foo.avi and
       pipes the frames into the decoder
