liquidsoap - a multimedia streaming language


liquidsoap [options] [script|expression]


Liquidsoap is a programming language for describing multimedia streaming systems. It is
very flexible, making simple things simple but giving a lot of control for advanced uses.
Liquidsoap supports audio, video and MIDI streams, and a wide range of input/output
operators including Icecast and various soundcard APIs. It can perform a broad range of
signal processing, combine streams in various ways, support custom transitions, generate
sound procedurally... and all this can be assembled as you wish. Input files can be
accessed remotely, or even be synthesized on the fly using external scripts such as speech
synthesis. Finally, interaction with a running liquidsoap instance is possible via telnet
or socket.

Liquidsoap scripts passed on the command line will be evaluated: they shall be used to
define the streaming system to be ran. It is possible to pass multiple scripts; they will
all be ran successively, and definitions from one script can be used in subsequent ones.
A script will be read from standard input if - is given as script filename. Information
about scripting liquidsoap is available on our website: http://liquidsoap.fm/

If the parameter is not a file it will be treated as an expression which will be executed.
It is a convenient way to test simple one-line scripts. When running only one-liners, the
default is to log messages directly on stdout rather than to a file.


Read script from standard input.

-- Stop parsing the command-line and pass subsequent items to the script.

Print debugging log messages.

--dynamic-plugins-dir path
Directory where to look for plugins.

Issue warnings instead of fatal errors for unused variables and ignored
expressions. If you are not sure about it, it is better to not use it.

Start an interactive interpreter.

List all plugins (builtin scripting values, supported formats and protocols).

List all plugins (builtin scripting values, supported formats and protocols),
output as XML.

Do not load pervasive script libraries.

Display liquidsoap's version.

-c, --check
Check and evaluate scripts but do not perform any streaming.

-cl, --check-lib
Like --check but treats all scripts and expressions as libraries, so that unused
toplevel variables are not reported.

-d, --daemon
Run in daemon mode.

-f, --force-start
For advanced dynamic uses: force liquidsoap to start even when no active source is
initially defined.

-h plugin
Print the description of a plugin, eg. a builtin scripting function.

-i Display inferred types.

-p, --parse-only
Parse scripts but do not type-check and run them.

-q, --quiet
Do not print log messages on standard output.

-r filename
Process a request.

-T, --disable-telnet
Disable the telnet server.

-U, --disable-unix-socket
Disable the unix socket.

-t, --enable-telnet
Enable the telnet server.

-u, --enable-unix-socket
Enable the unix socket.

-v, --verbose
Print log messages on standard output.

--conf-descr-key key
Describe a configuration key.

Show all configuration keys with their documentation.

Show all configuration keys with their documentation in liqi (documentation wiki)

Dump the configuration state
