gxine man page
gxine — a GTK/GNOME frontend to the xine video player
gxine [options] [files or MRLs]
gxine plays MPEG system (audio and video) streams, MPEG elementary streams (e.g. .mp3, .mpa or .mpv files), MPEG transport streams, AVI files, ASF files, Quicktime files, (S)VCDs and DVDs - anything which xine-lib can handle.
Typical usage looks like
gxine -f dvd://
Some directories and file names are not treated as ordinary files. They are:
A directory containing a DVD filesystem structure; or a UDF filesystem image, identified by file name (“*.iso”).
A cue file, identified by file name.
You can override this by using file://full/path/to/file.
- -A audio_driver
- --audio audio_driver
Select which libxine audio driver to use. This setting is not permanent, but it does prevent selection of other drivers via the preferences window.
- -V video_driver
- --video video_driver
Select which libxine video driver to use. This setting is not permanent, but it does prevent selection of other drivers via the preferences window.
Don't show the splash window during startup.
Don't clear the playlist before adding any MRLs; start playing the first new MRL.
Don't clear the playlist before adding any MRLs; don't start playing the first new MRL.
Start in full-screen mode.
- -C KEY=VALUE
- --configure KEY=VALUE
Set configuration item KEY to VALUE, e.g. “-c gui.window_size=100%”.
Verbose mode: output information about plugins, the video stream, commands executed etc. Repeat for more verbosity.
There are a couple of features which aren't immediately obvious: in full-screen mode, you can right-click to get access to the menus, or middle-click to show or hide the player controls.
