As you may have noticed, running the command

Running the command

on some [[command prompt]]s is not very useful due to to the non-scrollable pop-up window that opened.

If you look for help, on a particular module, use

You can also use this to get more exhaustive list:
  vlc -p module --advanced

vlc -H
 +
 
 +
If you look for help, on a particular module, you can also use
 +
  vlc -p module --advanced --help-verbose
 +
<code>--help-verbose</code> explains things. Omit this option if too much output is generated
 +
 
 +
To view this without leaving the command-line in Windows, use the following command (assuming you installed it in the default folder):
 +
more "{{VLC folder|windows}}\vlc-help.txt"
 +
This trick uses the command-line command <code>more</code> to show the file screen-by-screen. Pressing spacebar will advance the output a screen at a time, and pressing enter will advance the output one line at a time.

Here's the output of ''vlc -H'' of the stable 1.1.0 in Windows. If you are looking for 0.8.6 help, go [[VLC-0-8-6_command-line_help]]. If you are looking for 0.9.x help, go [[VLC-0-9-x_command-line_help]]. If you are looking for 1.0.x help, go [[VLC-1-0-x_command-line_help]]

Here's the output of ''vlc -H'' of vlc-4.0.0-dev under Windows. If the text is too small, pressing <kbd>Ctrl</kbd> and <kbd>+</kbd> together in most browsers will increase the font size (reset with <kbd>Ctrl</kbd> and <kbd>0</kbd> together).

          This is the default size of the fonts that will be rendered on the
 
          video. If set to something different than 0 this option will override
 
          the relative font size.
 
      --freetype-opacity=<integer [0 .. 255]>
 
                                 Opacity
 
          The opacity (inverse of transparency) of the text that will be
 
          rendered on the video. 0 = transparent, 255 = totally opaque.
