NAME
pia - play media files SYNOPSIS
pia [ options ] movie DESCRIPTION
pia is a small X11 tool which plays movie files. OPTIONS
pia understands the usual toolkit options (-geometry + friends). Additional options are: -h display help text -v be verbose. -debug enable debug messages. -dsp <dev> Use OSS device <dev> for sound. -noxv Disable Xvideo extension. -nogl Disable OpenGL. -noaudio Don't play sound. -novideo Don't play video. -slow n Slowdown video playback by factor n. n=2 doubles playback time, ... This also turns off audio playback. SUPPORTED MOVIE FORMATS
Main purpose of this utility is to playback movie files recorded by xawtv, motv and streamer. It should be able to playback every AVI or QuickTime movie written by one of the mentioned utilities. Feel free to submit a bug report if this doesn't work for some file. QuickTime pia uses libquicktime to decode quicktime movies, thus it should be able to decode and playback all movies with codecs supported by libquicktime. AVI AVI support is very limited. Video: uncompressed RGB data (15 and 24 bpp) and mjpeg is supported. Audio: only uncompressed PCM data works. WAV WAV files are playable too, with the same limitation like AVI audio: only uncompressed PCM data. AUTHOR

NAME
streamer - record audio and/or video SYNOPSIS
streamer [ options ] DESCRIPTION
streamer reads audio and/or video data from /dev/video0 and /dev/dsp and writes the data to the disk. Various output formats are sup- ported. Start streamer with '-h' for a list of options and supported output formats. streamer will use the file extention of the output file name to figure which format to use. You need the -f/-F options only if the exten- tion allows more than one format. If you get the "neither audio nor video format specified/found" message and don't know why, you can enable the debug output (-d switch) to see what is going on. You can safely stop the recording at any time with Ctrl+C. streamer will catch the signal and stop recording correctly (i.e. write movie file headers) before exiting. EXAMPLES
streamer -o foobar.jpeg write a single jpeg file. streamer -o quicktime.mov -f yuv2 -F stereo -r 12 -t 0:10 record a short quicktime movie. SEE ALSO
