zvbid: VBI proxy daemon
NAMEzvbid - VBI proxy daemon
SYNOPSISzvbid [ options ]
DESCRIPTIONzvbid is a proxy for VBI devices, i.e. it forwards one or more VBI data streams to one or more connected clients and manages channel change requests.
- -dev path
- Path of a device from which to read data. This argument can be given several times with different devices.
- -buffers count
- Number of buffers to allocate for capturing VBI raw data from devices which support streaming (currently only video4linux, rev. 2) A higher number of buffers can prevent data loss in case of high latency. The downside is higher memory consumption (typically 65kB per buffer.) Default count is 8, maximum is 32.
- Daemon process remains connected to the terminal from which it was started (e.g. so that you can stop it by pressing Control-C keys). Intended for trouble shooting only.
- Terminates a proxy daemon running for the given device.
- -debug level
- Enables debug output: 0= off(default); 1= general messages; In addition 2, 4, 8, ... can be added to enable debug output for various categories.
- -syslog level
- Enables syslog output.
- -loglevel level
- Log file level
- -logfile path
- Path to the log file.
