liquidsoap - programmable audio stream generator
liquidsoap [option...] [script.liq|expression|audiofile]
liquidsoap is an extensible and flexible audio stream generator, mainly
used for streaming to a shoutcast/icecast server. It is also possible
to output in a file, to speakers or as raw PCM stream. liquidsoap can
perform any audio processing, mixing streams together, applying
filters, generating sound procedurally, there is no limit but your
imagination. Input files can be accessed through the network, using
samba, ftp or speech synthesis. Recognized formats are MP3,
Ogg/Vorbis, AAC and WAV. Liquidsoap also inputs HTTP streams, or from
a soundcard. The system features lots of programming operators,
including user requests, time-based selection, sum. Many of these
features are optional, so it is possible that they are not enabled in
script.liq is a liquidsoap script containing the settings and the
source definitions. The script will be read from standard input if --
is given as script filename. Information about scripting liquidsoap is
available on our website: http://savonet.sf.net/
If the parameter is an audio file then liquidsoap will attempt to
decode it and will display the obtained metadata.
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. In that case, the default is to have log messages on standard
output and to disable the telnet server.
