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, supported parameter for codec are

mp3MPEG audio(lame)
ac3AC3 audio(liba52)
dvDigital Video DV(libdv)
mpeg2MPEG video(libmpeg2)
yv12Y'CbCr YUV
movQuicktime(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

rgbRGB 24bit
yv12Y'CbCr YUV
yuy24:2:2 YUV
pcmSIGNED 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 off1
demux2
dolby off4

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 supported). You can combine several levels by adding the corresponding values:

QUIET0
INFO1
DEBUG2
STATS4
WATCH8
FLIST16
VIDCORE32
SYNC64
COUNTER128
PRIVATE256

-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
