NAMEtcextract - read multimedia file from medium, extract or demultiplex requested stream and print to standard output
- -i name [ -x codec ] [ -t magic ] [ -a track ] [ -C s-e ] [ -d verbosity ] [ -v ]

DESCRIPTIONtcextract is part of and usually called by transcode.
However, it can also be used independently.
tcextract reads source (from stdin if not explicitely defined) and prints on the standard output.
- -i name
Specify input source. If ommited, stdin is assumed.
tcextract reads streams from file or from stdin.
- -C s-e
extract and print out only this frame interval (video) or bytes (audio) [all]. This option is only supported if the source contains proper information to perform a selective extraction.
- -t magic
source file magic. This option is used to identify the source file format if reading is performed from stdin or tcextract fails to identify the source
file format. Supported formats are labeled with magic:
- -x codec
source pdeudo-codec, if not detected when reading from stdin. Currently, supported parameter for codec are
- -a track
extract selected audio or video track from source.
- -d level
With this option you can specify a bitmask to enable different levels
of verbosity (if supported). You can combine several levels by adding the
Print version information and exit.
NOTEStcextract is a front end for extracting various raw or encoded audio/video tracks from a source and is used in transcode's import pipeline.
EXAMPLESThe command tcextract -i foo.avi -x mp3 -a 3 extracts MPEG audio track 3 from the AVI-file foo.avi and prints the bitstream to stdout.
