       tccat  -  concatenate  multimedia  streams from medium and print on the
       standard output


       tccat  -i name [ -t magic ] [ -T title[,chapter[,angle]] ] [ -L ] [  -S

       tccat is Copyright (C) by Thomas Oestreich.


       tccat is part of and usually called by transcode.
       However, it can also be used independently.
       tccat  reads  source (from stdin if not explicitely defined) and prints
       on the standard output. Directory contents is concatenated,  if  source
       files have the same format. Multiple AVI-files are also supported.


       -i name
              Specify input source.  If ommited, stdin is assumed.
              You  can  specify  a file, directory, device, mountpoint or host
              address as input source.  tccat usually  handles  the  different
              types correctly.

       -t magic
              Tell  tccat  about  the  type  of  input.  Currently only dvd is
              supported - any other parameter will be ignored.

       -T title[,chapter[,angle]]
              Select DVD title and extract only a single chapter with selected
              viewing  angle.   Setting  the  argument  chapter to -1 means to
              process all available chapters on the DVD.
              If this option is given, the input type  of  dvd  will  also  be
              assumed (see option -t).

       -L     This option tells tccat to loop through all chapters starting at
              the one given with the option -T.

       -S n   Seek to  program  stream  (VOB)  offset  nx2kB  before  starting

       -P     Stream full DVD title specified by -T.

       -a     Use  this  option  to  dump an AVI-file/socket audio stream. The
              default is to extract and concatenate AVI-file video stream.

       -d level
              With this option you can specify a bitmask to  enable  different
              levels  of  verbosity  (if  supported).  You can combine several
              levels by adding the corresponding values:

              QUIET         0

              INFO          1

              DEBUG         2

              STATS         4

              WATCH         8

              FLIST        16

              VIDCORE      32

              SYNC         64

              COUNTER     128

              PRIVATE     256

       -v     Print version information and exit.


       tccat is a front end for streaming various source types and is used  in
       transcode's import modules.


       The command

       tccat -i /dev/dvd -T 1,-1 | mplayer -

       reads  all  chapters  belonging  to  title  1  of  a DVD (assuming that
       /dev/dvd/ is a symbolic link to a real DVD device)  and  pipes  a  MPEG
       program stream into player.
