aaxine [aalib-options] [-A<audio-driver>] [-a<audio-channel>] [-R<rec-by>] [MRL...]
This manual page explains the aaxine program. Aaxine, is an aalib based frontend for
libxine, a versatile video/multimedia player.
aaxine is for those who don't have a high end video card, but just want to watch DVDs on
their good old vt100 ;-)
Like xine, aaxine plays MPEG system (audio and video) streams, mpeg elementary streams
(e.g. .mp3 or .mpv files), avi files (using win32 codecs or ffmpeg), (S)VCDs, DVDs and
many more. In short, anything that's supported by xine-lib.
The program follows usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two
dashes (`-'). A summary of options are included below. For a complete description, see
README and FAQ in /usr/share/doc/xine-ui or on the xine home page.
