NAME
       paplay - Play back audio files on a PulseAudio sound server

SYNOPSIS
       paplay [options] FILE

       paplay --help

       paplay --version

DESCRIPTION
       paplay  is  a  simple  tool  for playing back audio files on a PulseAudio sound server. It
       understands all audio file formats supported by libsndfile.

OPTIONS
       -h | --help
	      Show help.

       --version
	      Show version information.

       -v | --verbose
	      Enable verbose operation. Dumps the current playback time to  STDERR  during  play-
	      back.

       -s | --server=SERVER
	      Choose the server to connect to.

       -d | --device=SINK
	      Specify the symbolic name of the sink to play this file on.

       -n | --client-name=NAME
	      Specify the client name paplay shall pass to the server when connecting.

       --stream-name=NAME
	      Specify the stream name paplay shall pass to the server when creating the stream.

       --volume=VOLUME
	      Specify  the  initial playback volume to use. Choose a value between 0 (silent) and
	      65536 (100% volume).

       --channel-map=CHANNELMAP
	      Explicitly choose a channel map when playing back this stream. The argument  should
	      be  a  comma separated list of channel names: front-left, front-right, mono, front-
	      center, rear-left, rear-right, rear-center, lfe, front-left-of-center, front-right-
	      of-center,  side-left,  side-right,  top-center,	top-front-center, top-front-left,
	      top-front-right, top-rear-left, top-rear-right, top-rear-center, or any of  the  32
	      auxiliary channel names aux0 to aux31.

LIMITATIONS
       Due to a limitation in libsndfile paplay currently does not always set the correct channel
       mapping for playback of multichannel (i.e. surround) audio files, even if the channel map-
       ping information is available in the audio file.
