NAME
       tcscan  -  scan	multimedia  streams from medium and print
       information on the standard output

SYNOPSIS

       tcscan -i name [ -x codec ] [ -e r[,b[,c]] ] [ -b  bitrate
	      ] [ -w num ] [ -f rate ] [ -d verbosity ] [ -v ]

COPYRIGHT

       tcscan is Copyright (C) by Thomas Ostreich.

DESCRIPTION

       tcscan is part of and usually called by transcode.
       However, it can also be used independently.
       tcscan	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.
	      You  can	specify a file, directory, device, mount-
	      point or host address as input source.  tcscan usu-
	      ally handles the different types correctly.

       -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

       tcscan is a front end for scaning various source types and
       is used in transcode's import modules.  tcscan does a com-
       plete scan of the source to gather information.

EXAMPLES

       The command tcscan -i foo.avi  prints  header  information
       about  the  AVI-file itself and lists details on the video
       and audio content, e.g., keyframes, chunk structure.

       The command cat audio.pcm | tcscan -x  pcm  -e  48000,16,2
       simply  determines  the	playtime lenghth of the raw audio
       stream.

       The command tcscan -x mp3 -i input.mp3 will print the num-
       ber of chunks in the MP3 file and the average bitrate.
