roartips - Tips for RoarAudio users SYNOPSIS
roard [OPTIONS...] ... roarclient [OPTIONS...] ... DESCRIPTION
This manpage lists some tips for intermedia to advanced users of RoarAudio. CONTROLLING ROARD
RoarAudio supports a lot of things you can change on the fly. This includes the volume for each stream as you may allready noticed: If you cange the volume within a player only this stream is changed, other streams keep there loudness. There a a lot other things that can be changed on the fly. To do this there is a tool called roarctl(1). You may want to play around a bit with it. A good start are to try those two commands: roarctl --help roarctl allinfo The later one will show you all information current available of the server it self, the clients and the streams. This may include a lot of information. SERVER ADDRESS
There a serverel types of server addresses based on the protocol used to communicate. This lists the corrently implemented types in order of importance: /path/to/sock Path to UNIX Domain Socket. Example: /tmp/roar host, host:port This is used for connections over TCP/IP. If port is omitted the default port is used. Examples: audio.homeserver.local localhost:7564 node::, node::object, ::object, :: This is the way to specify a DECnet connection to node node's object object. Both may be omitted to use defaults. Default node name is local hosts node name. Examples: mynode:: ::roar yournode::yourroard +fork This starts a new roard for every roar_connect(3). This is used internaly by the lib to emulate EsounD's fallback. ENVIRONMENT
ROAR_SERVER This varibale contains the default server address. If some client does not allow a user to set a server address or to set a default value this one come into play. Examples: ROAR_SERVER=some.host ROAR_SERVER=another.host:port ROAR_SERVER=node:: ROAR_SERVER=/tmp/roar SEE ALSO

NAME
libroar - RoarAudio sound library SYNOPSIS
#include <roaraudio.h> DESCRIPTION
libroar is a central library used to comunicate with RoarAudio servers. It supports all commands from simple commands to play some audio up to complex commands to controll the server and do nice things over the network. It also includes several useful functions from buffer mangement to IO abstraction. EXAMPLES
The basic tools shiped with RoarAudio are designed to also work as examples for the lib. You may start by looking at roarcat(1)s source code as an example on how to simply play back some audio. A more complex example is roarvorbis(1) which also includes meta data updates. You should also have a look at VS API, see roarvs(7) for a overview. TUTORIALS
Tutorials can be found in roartut(7). ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
The following variables are used in libroar itself so they are common to all clients using libroar. HOME The users home directory. ROAR_SERVER The address of the listening server. This may be in form of host:port for TCP/IP connections and /path/to/sock for UNIX Domain Sock- ets. If a value of '+fork' is given a roard is forked and used. This roard will not listen on any sockets so it is used exclusiv by this client. See roard(1) for more information. ROAR_PROXY Set the type of the proxy being used to connect to the server. Valid values are 'socks4', 'socks4a', 'socks4d', 'http' and 'ssh' for the moment. You can add type depending options in form 'type/opts'. socks_proxy The SOCKS4/4a/4d/5 proxy to use in form [user@]host[:port]. Default port is 9050. http_proxy, https_proxy The HTTP/HTTPS Proxy server. This server needs to understand the CONNECT request type. Give the server name in this format: [http://]host[:port][/] The default port is 8080. ssh_proxy The remote host to use as SSH Proxy server. Give the server name in this format: [user@]host[:port] The default port is 22. Note that you may need to use publickey based auth or ssh-agent because the application may start SSH in a non interactive environment and SSH can not ask you for a password. FILES
/etc/roarserver This is a symlink to the server socket. If all types of server addresses are supported. Example: ln -s /tmp/roar /etc/roarserver ln -s somehost /etc/roarserver ln -s mynode:: /etc/roarserver BUGS
