kateenc - create Kate streams from text input
kateenc [-hVM] [-o outfile] [-l language] [-c category] [-s serial] [-C tag=value] [-R threshold] [-K threshold] -t filetype [ infile ]
kateenc creates Kate streams from input files (SubRip SRT subtitles, LRC lyrics, and libkate's custom description language). When saved to
an Ogg stream (the default behavior), a Kate stream may then be merged with other Ogg streams (eg, a Theora video) using the oggz tools.
-h Show command line help.
-V Show version information.
-M Allow simple HTML-like markup in SRT files. If this parameter is used, strings such as "<i>" will be interpreted to mean italics,
rather than appear as such. Note that various players interpret a slightly different set of HTML tags, and some do not.
Write the output Kate stream to the given file name (writes to stdout if not specified).
Sets the language for the stream (default is the language specified in the input, or none).
Sets the category for the stream (default is the category specified in the input, or none).
Sets the serial number for the output Kate stream (does not apply to raw streams).
Adds a comment to encode into the output Kate stream. The comment must be of the form tag=value, and comply with the Vorbis comment
rules (eg, tag is composed of a particular subset of ASCII characters, and value is valid UTF-8). Note that you might have to escape
or quote the comment for it to be seen as a single command line parameter.
Specifies the type of the input (srt, lrc, kate)
Use repeat packets, with the given threshold (in seconds). Data packets will be repeated at intervals of roughly threshold seconds,
Use keepalive packets, with the given threshold (in seconds). Keepalive packets will be emitted when no other packet has been emit-
ted for roughly threshold seconds.
Create a Kate stream for Welsh subtitles from a SubRip file:
kateenc -t srt -l cy -c SUB -o output.ogg input.srt
