zvbid — VBI proxy daemon

Synopsis

zvbid [ options ]

Description

zvbid is a proxy for VBI devices, i.e. it forwards one or more VBI data streams to one or more connected clients and manages channel change requests.

Options

-dev path

Path of a device from which to read data.  This argument can be given several times with different devices.

-buffers count

Number of buffers to allocate for capturing VBI raw data from devices which support streaming (currently only video4linux, rev. 2)  A higher number of buffers can prevent data loss in case of high latency. The downside is higher memory consumption (typically 65kB per buffer.) Default count is 8, maximum is 32.

-nodetach

Daemon process remains connected to the terminal from which it was started (e.g. so that you can stop it by pressing Control-C keys).  Intended for trouble shooting only.

-kill

Terminates a proxy daemon running for the given device.

-debug level

Enables debug output: 0= off(default); 1= general messages; In addition 2, 4, 8, ... can be added to enable debug output for various categories.

-syslog level

Enables syslog output.

-loglevel level

Log file level

-logfile path

Path to the log file.

-maxclients count
