freetuxtv(1) Internet television and radio player


freetuxtv [options]


This manual page briefly documents the freetuxtv player.

freetuxtv is a video player based on LibVLC allowing you to watch and record TV on your PC. A large database (growing daily) of free WebTV/WebRadio/WebCam channels in more than 20 languages is accessible. You can also play streams from ISP television service if it provides this feature. Moreover, it is also possible to easily program your recording on each channel with different transcoding formats.


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.

--open-channel CHANNEL_NAME
