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 supported.  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 extention 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.
