-.
-.SH DESCRIPTION
-.B mplayer
-is a movie player for Linux (runs on many other platforms and CPU
-architectures, see the documentation).
-It plays most MPEG/\:VOB, AVI, ASF/\:WMA/\:WMV, RM, QT/\:MOV/\:MP4, Ogg/\:OGM,
-MKV, VIVO, FLI, NuppelVideo, yuv4mpeg, FILM and RoQ files, supported by many
-native and binary codecs.
-You can watch VCD, SVCD, DVD, Blu\-ray, 3ivx, DivX 3/4/5, WMV and even H.264 movies,
-too.
-.PP
-MPlayer supports a wide range of video and audio output drivers.
-It works with X11, Xv, DGA, OpenGL, SVGAlib, fbdev, AAlib, libcaca, DirectFB,
-Quartz, Mac OS X CoreVideo, but you can also use GGI, SDL (and all their drivers),
-VESA (on every VESA-compatible card, even without X11), some low-level
-card-specific drivers (for Matrox, 3dfx and ATI) and some hardware MPEG decoder
-boards, such as the Siemens DVB, Hauppauge PVR (IVTV) and DXR3/\:Hollywood+.
-Most of them support software or hardware scaling, so you can enjoy movies in
-fullscreen mode.
-.PP
-MPlayer has an onscreen display (OSD) for status information, nice big
-antialiased shaded subtitles and visual feedback for keyboard controls.
-European/\:ISO8859-1,2 (Hungarian, English, Czech, etc), Cyrillic and Korean
-fonts are supported along with 12 subtitle formats (MicroDVD, SubRip, OGM,
-SubViewer, Sami, VPlayer, RT, SSA, AQTitle, JACOsub, PJS and our own: MPsub) and
-DVD subtitles (SPU streams, VOBsub and Closed Captions).
-.PP
-Usage examples to get you started quickly can be found at the end
-of this man page.
-.PP
-.B Also see the HTML documentation!

-.\" Usage
-.\" --------------------------------------------------------------------------
-.
-.SH "USAGE"
-Every 'flag' option has a 'noflag' counterpart, e.g.\& the opposite of the
-\-fs option is \-nofs.
-.PP
-If an option is marked as (XXX only), it will only work in combination with
-the XXX option or if XXX is compiled in.
-.PP
-.I NOTE:
-The suboption parser (used for example for \-ao pcm suboptions) supports
-a special kind of string-escaping intended for use with external GUIs.
-.br
-It has the following format:
-.br
-%n%string_of_length_n
-.br
-.I EXAMPLES:
-.br
-mplayer \-ao pcm:file=%10%C:test.wav test.avi
-.br
-Or in a script:
-.br
-mplayer \-ao pcm:file=%`expr length "$NAME"`%"$NAME" test.avi

-.\" --------------------------------------------------------------------------
-.\" Configuration files
-.\" --------------------------------------------------------------------------
-.
-.SH "CONFIGURATION FILES"
-You can put all of the options in configuration files which will be read
-every time MPlayer is run.
-The system-wide configuration file 'mplayer.conf' is in your configuration
-directory (e.g.\& /etc/\:mplayer or /usr/\:local/\:etc/\:mplayer), the user
-specific one is '~/\:.mplayer/\:config'.
-User specific options override system-wide options and options given on the
-command line override either.
-The syntax of the configuration files is 'option=<value>', everything after
-a '#' is considered a comment.
-Options that work without values can be enabled by setting them to 'yes'
-or '1' or 'true' and disabled by setting them to 'no' or '0' or 'false'.
-Even suboptions can be specified in this way.
-.PP
-You can also write file-specific configuration files.
-If you wish to have a configuration file for a file called 'movie.avi', create a file
-named 'movie.avi.conf' with the file-specific options in it and put it in
-~/.mplayer/.
-You can also put the configuration file in the same directory as the file to
-be played, as long as you give the \-use\-filedir\-conf option (either on the
-command line or in your global config file).
-If a file-specific configuration file is found in the same directory, no
-file-specific configuration is loaded from ~/.mplayer.
-In addition, the \-use\-filedir\-conf option enables directory-specific
-configuration files.
-For this, MPlayer first tries to load a mplayer.conf from the same directory as
-the file played and then tries to load any file-specific configuration.
-.PP
-.I EXAMPLE MPLAYER CONFIGURATION FILE:
-.sp 1
-.nf
-# Use Matrox driver by default.
-vo=xmga
-# I love practicing handstands while watching videos.
-flip=yes
-# Decode multiple files from PNG,
-# start with mf://filemask

-.\" --------------------------------------------------------------------------
-.\" Profiles
-.\" --------------------------------------------------------------------------
-.
-.SH "PROFILES"
-To ease working with different configurations profiles can be defined in the
-configuration files.
-A profile starts with its name between square brackets, e.g.\& '[my-profile]'.
-All following options will be part of the profile.
-A description (shown by \-profile help) can be defined with the profile-desc
-option.
-To end the profile, start another one or use the profile name 'default'
-to continue with normal options.

-.TP
-.B "\-v\ \ \ \ \ "
-Increment verbosity level, one level for each \-v
-found on the command line.
-.
-.
-.
-.SH "PLAYER OPTIONS"
-.
-.TP
-.B \-autoq <quality> (use with \-vf [s]pp)
-Dynamically changes the level of postprocessing depending on the available spare
-CPU time.
-The number you specify will be the maximum level used.
-Usually you can use some big number.
-You have to use \-vf [s]pp without parameters in order for this to work.
-.
-.TP
-.B \-autosync <factor>
-Gradually adjusts the A/V sync based on audio delay measurements.
-Specifying \-autosync 0, the default, will cause frame timing to be based
-entirely on audio delay measurements.
-Specifying \-autosync 1 will do the same, but will subtly change the A/V
-correction algorithm.
-An uneven video framerate in a movie which plays fine with \-nosound can
-often be helped by setting this to an integer value greater than 1.
-The higher the value, the closer the timing will be to \-nosound.
-Try \-autosync 30 to smooth out problems with sound drivers which do
-not implement a perfect audio delay measurement.
-With this value, if large A/V sync offsets occur, they will only take about
-1 or 2 seconds to settle out.
-This delay in reaction time to sudden A/V offsets should be the only
-side-effect of turning this option on, for all sound drivers.
-.
-.TP
-.B \-benchmark
-Prints some statistics on CPU usage and dropped frames at the end of playback.
-Use in combination with \-nosound and \-vo null for benchmarking only the
-video codec.
-.br
-.I NOTE:
-With this option MPlayer will also ignore frame duration when playing
-only video (you can think of that as infinite fps).
-.
-.TP
-.B \-chapter\-merge\-threshold <number>
-Threshold for merging almost consecutive ordered chapter parts
-in milliseconds (default: 100).
-Some Matroska files with ordered chapters have inaccurate chapter
-end timestamps, causing a small gap between the end of one chapter and
-the start of the next one when they should match.
-If the end of one playback part is less than the given threshold away
-from the start of the next one then keep playing video normally over the
-chapter change instead of doing a seek.
-.
-.TP
-.B \-colorkey <number>
-Changes the colorkey to an RGB value of your choice.
-0x000000 is black and 0xffffff is white.
-Only supported by the fbdev, svga, vesa, xmga,
-xover, xv (see \-vo xv:ck) and directx video output drivers.
-.
-.TP
-.B \-nocolorkey
-Disables colorkeying.
-Only supported by the fbdev, svga, vesa, xmga,
-xover, xv (see \-vo xv:ck) and directx video output drivers.
-.
-.TP
-.B \-correct\-pts, \-nocorrect\-pts
-Switches MPlayer to a mode where timestamps for video frames
-are calculated differently and video filters which add new frames or
-modify timestamps of existing ones are supported.
-Now enabled automatically for most common file formats.
-The more accurate timestamps can be visible for example when playing
-subtitles timed to scene changes with the \-ass option.
-Without \-correct\-pts the subtitle timing will typically be off by some frames.
-This option does not work correctly with some demuxers and codecs.
-.
-.TP
-.B \-crash\-debug (DEBUG CODE)
-Automatically attaches gdb upon crash or SIGTRAP.
-Support must be compiled in by configuring with \-\-enable\-crash\-debug.
-.
-.TP
-.B \-doubleclick\-time
-Time in milliseconds to recognize two consecutive button presses as
-a double-click (default: 300).
-Set to 0 to let your windowing system decide what a double-click is
-(\-vo directx only).
-.
-.TP
-.B \-edlout <filename>
-Creates a new file and writes edit decision list (EDL) records to it.
-During playback, the user hits 'i' to mark the start or end of a skip block.
-This provides a starting point from which the user can fine-tune EDL entries
-later.
-See http://www.mplayerhq.hu/\:DOCS/\:HTML/\:en/\:edl.html for details.
-.
-.TP
-.B \-fixed\-vo, \-nofixed\-vo
-\-fixed\-vo enforces a fixed video system for multiple files (one
-(un)initialization for all files).
-Therefore only one window will be opened for all files.
-Now enabled by default, use \-nofixed\-vo to disable and create a new window
-whenever the video stream changes.
-Some of the older drivers may not be fixed-vo compliant.
-.
-.TP
-.B \-framedrop (also see \-hardframedrop, experimental without \-nocorrect\-pts)
-Skip displaying some frames to maintain A/V sync on slow systems.
-Video filters are not applied to such frames.
-For B-frames even decoding is skipped completely.
-.
-.TP
-.B \-h, \-help, \-\-help
-Show short summary of options.
-.
-.TP
-.B \-hardframedrop (experimental without \-nocorrect\-pts)
-More intense frame dropping (breaks decoding).
-Leads to image distortion!
-Note that especially the libmpeg2 decoder may crash with this,
-so consider using "\-vc ffmpeg12,".
-.
-.TP
-.B \-heartbeat\-cmd
-Command that is executed every 30 seconds during playback via system() -
-i.e.\& using the shell.
-.sp 1

-MPlayer uses this command without any checking, it is your responsibility

-.B \-hr\-seek off|absolute|always
-Select when to use precise seeks that are not limited to keyframes.
-Such seeks require decoding video from the previous keyframe up to the target
-position and so can take some time depending on decoding performance.
-For some video formats precise seeks are disabled. This option selects the
-default choice to use for seeks; it's possible to explicitly override that
-default in the definition of key bindings and in slave mode commands.
-.PD 0
-.RSs
-.IPs off
-Never use precise seeks.
-.IPs absolute
-Use precise seeks if the seek is to an absolute position in the file,
-such as a chapter seek, but not for relative seeks like the default
-behavior of arrow keys (default).
-.IPs always
-Use precise seeks whenever possible.

-.B \-identify
-Shorthand for \-msglevel identify=4.
-Show file parameters in an easily parseable format.
-Also prints more detailed information about subtitle and audio
-track languages and IDs.
-In some cases you can get more information by using \-msglevel identify=6.
-For example, for a DVD or Blu\-ray it will list the chapters and time length
-of each title, as well as a disk ID.
-Combine this with \-frames 0 to suppress all video output.
-The wrapper script TOOLS/\:midentify.sh suppresses the other MPlayer output and
-(hopefully) shellescapes the filenames.

-.B \-idle (also see \-slave)
-Makes MPlayer wait idly instead of quitting when there is no file to play.
-Mostly useful in slave mode where MPlayer can be controlled
-through input commands.

-.B \-input <commands>
-This option can be used to configure certain parts of the input system.

-.IPs conf=<filename>
-Specify input configuration file other than the default
-~/\:.mplayer/\:input.conf.
-~/\:.mplayer/\:<filename> is assumed if no full path is given.
-.IPs ar-dev=<device>
-Device to be used for Apple IR Remote (default is autodetected, Linux only).
-.IPs ar-delay
-Delay in milliseconds before we start to autorepeat a key (0 to disable).
-.IPs ar-rate
-Number of key presses to generate per second on autorepeat.
-.IPs (no)default-bindings
-Use the key bindings that MPlayer ships with by default.
-.IPs keylist
-Prints all keys that can be bound to commands.
-.IPs cmdlist
-Prints all commands that can be bound to keys.
-.IPs js-dev
-Specifies the joystick device to use (default: /dev/\:input/\:js0).
-.IPs file=<filename>
-Read commands from the given file.
-Mostly useful with a FIFO.
-.br
-.I NOTE:
-When the given file is a FIFO MPlayer opens both ends so you can do
-several 'echo "seek 10" > mp_pipe' and the pipe will stay valid.
-.RE

-.B \-key\-fifo\-size <2\-65000>
-Specify the size of the FIFO that buffers key events (default: 7).
-If it is too small some events may be lost.
-The main disadvantage of setting it to a very large value is that if you
-hold down a key triggering some particularly slow command then the player
-may be unresponsive while it processes all the queued commands.

-.
-.TP
-.B \-noconsolecontrols
-Prevent MPlayer from reading key events from standard input.
-Useful when reading data from standard input.
-This is automatically enabled when \- is found on the command line.
-There are situations where you have to set it manually, e.g.\&
-if you open /dev/\:stdin (or the equivalent on your system), use stdin
-in a playlist or intend to read from stdin later on via the loadfile or
-loadlist slave commands.

-.TP
-.B \-noinitial-audio-sync
-When starting a video file or after events such as seeking MPlayer will by
-default modify the audio stream to make it start from the same timestamp as
-video, by either inserting silence at the start or cutting away the first
-samples.
-This option disables that functionality and makes the player behave like
-older MPlayer versions did: video and audio are both started immediately
-even if their start timestamps differ, and then video timing is gradually
-adjusted if necessary to reach correct synchronization later.

-.B \-noordered\-chapters
-Disable support for Matroska ordered chapters.
-MPlayer will not load or search for video segments from other files,
-and will also ignore any chapter order specified for the main file.

-The way MPlayer parses and uses playlist files is not safe against
-maliciously constructed files.
-Such files may trigger harmful actions.
-This has been the case for all MPlayer versions, but unfortunately this
