Usage: vlc [options] [stream] ...
 +
You can specify multiple streams on the commandline. They will be enqueued in the playlist.
 +
The first item specified will be played first.
 +
 
 +
Options-styles:
 +
  --option  A global option that is set for the duration of the program.
 +
  -option  A single letter version of a global --option.
 +
  :option  An option that only applies to the stream directly before it
 +
            and that overrides previous settings.
 +
 
 +
Stream MRL syntax:
 +
  [[access][/demux]://]URL[@[title][:chapter][-[title][:chapter]]] [:option=value ...]
 +
 
 +
  Many of the global --options can also be used as MRL specific :options.

VBI and Teletext decoder
 +
      --vbi-page=<integer>      Teletext page
 +
          Open the indicated Teletext page.Default page is index 100
 +
      --vbi-opaque, --no-vbi-opaque
 +
                                Text is always opaque (default enabled)
 +
          Setting vbi-opaque to false makes the boxed text transparent.
 +
          (default enabled)
 +
      --vbi-position={0 (Center), 1 (Left), 2 (Right), 4 (Top), 8 (Bottom), 5 (Top-Left), 6 (Top-Right), 9 (Bottom-Left), 10 (Bottom-Right)}
 +
                                Teletext alignment
 +
          You can enforce the teletext position on the video (0=center, 1=left,
 +
          2=right, 4=top, 8=bottom, you can also use combinations of these
 +
          values, eg. 6 = top-right).
 +
      --vbi-text, --no-vbi-text  Teletext text subtitles (default disabled)
 +
          Output teletext subtitles as text instead of as RGBA (default
 +
          disabled)
 +
 
 +
YUV video output
 +
      --yuv-file=<string>        device, fifo or filename
 +
          device, fifo or filename to write yuv frames too.
 +
      --yuv-chroma=<string>      Chroma used
 +
          Force use of a specific chroma for output. Default is I420.
 +
      --yuv-yuv4mpeg2, --no-yuv-yuv4mpeg2
 +
                                YUV4MPEG2 header (default disabled) (default
 +
                                disabled)
 +
          The YUV4MPEG2 header is compatible with mplayer yuv video ouput and
 +
          requires YV12/I420 fourcc. By default vlc writes the fourcc of the
 +
          picture frame into the output destination. (default disabled)
 +
 
 +
H.264/MPEG4 AVC encoder (x264)
 +
      --sout-x264-keyint=<integer>
 +
                                Maximum GOP size
 +
          Sets maximum interval between IDR-frames.Larger values save bits,
 +
          thus improving quality for a given bitrate at the cost of seeking
 +
          precision.
 +
      --sout-x264-min-keyint=<integer>
 +
                                Minimum GOP size
 +
          Sets minimum interval between IDR-frames. In H.264, I-frames do not
 +
          necessarily bound a closed GOP because it is allowable for a P-frame
 +
          to be predicted from more frames than just the one frame before it
 +
          (also see reference frame option). Therefore, I-frames are not
 +
          necessarily seekable. IDR-frames restrict subsequent P-frames from
 +
          referring to any frame prior to the IDR-frame.
 +
If scenecuts appear
 +
          within this interval, they are still encoded as I-frames, but do not
 +
          start a new GOP.
 +
      --sout-x264-scenecut=<integer [-1 .. 100]>
 +
                                Extra I-frames aggressivity
 +
          Scene-cut detection. Controls how aggressively to insert extra
 +
          I-frames. With small values of scenecut, the codec often has to force
 +
          an I-frame when it would exceed keyint. Good values of scenecut may
 +
          find a better location for the I-frame. Large values use more
 +
          I-frames than necessary, thus wasting bits. -1 disables scene-cut
 +
          detection, so I-frames are inserted only every other keyint frames,
 +
          which probably leads to ugly encoding artifacts. Range 1 to 100.
 +
      --sout-x264-bframes=<integer [0 .. 16]>
 +
                                B-frames between I and P
 +

      --sout-x264-b-adapt=<integer [0 .. 2]>
 +
                                Adaptive B-frame decision
 +
          Force the specified number of consecutive B-frames to be used, except
 +
          possibly before an I-frame.Range 0 to 2.
 +
      --sout-x264-b-bias=<integer [-100 .. 100]>
 +
                                Influence (bias) B-frames usage
 +
          Bias the choice to use B-frames. Positive values cause more B-frames,
 +
          negative values cause less B-frames.
 +
      --sout-x264-bpyramid={none,strict,normal}
 +
                                Keep some B-frames as references
 +
          Allows B-frames to be used as references for predicting other frames.
 +
          Keeps the middle of 2+ consecutive B-frames as a reference, and
 +
          reorders frame appropriately.

 +
          errors.
 +
Valid values range from 0 to 4 (0 disables all errors
 +
          resilience).
 +
      --ffmpeg-workaround-bugs=<integer>

          interlaced
 +
8  ump4
 +
16 no padding
 +
32 ac vlc
 +
64 Qpel chroma.

 +
                                disabled)
 +
          Allowing only one running instance of VLC can sometimes be useful,
 +
          for example if you associated VLC with some media types and you don't
 +
          want a new instance of VLC to be opened each time you double-click on
 +
          a file in the explorer. This option will allow you to play the file

          and keep playing current item. (default disabled)
 +
      --high-priority, --no-high-priority
 +
                                Increase the priority of the process (default
 +

 +
          Increasing the priority of the process will very likely improve your
 +
          playing experience as it allows VLC not to be disturbed by other
 +
          applications that could otherwise take too much processor time.
 +
          However be advised that in certain circumstances (bugs) VLC could
 +
          take all the processor time and render the whole system unresponsive
 +
          which might require a reboot of your machine. (default disabled)
