pob-fec(1) receive FEC MP3 streams


pob-fec [ -s address ] [ -p port ] [ -b size ] [ -q ]


pob-fec receives a FEC MP3 stream using a custom protocol. The streamed MP3 frames are first decomposed in autonomous data units (ADUs). These ADUs are grouped into ADU groups, which are encoded redundantly using a FEC method by Luigi Rizzo. For example, a group if 8 ADUs can be encoded into 16 packets. Any 8 received packets of these 16 packets is sufficient to recover the original 8 ADUs. The incoming MP3 stream is decoded, buffered and written to stdout.


-s address
Specify the address to listen to (default If the address is a multicast address, group membership is requested automatically.
-p port
Specify the port to listen to.
-b size
Specify the number of ADU groups that are hold in the buffer (default 16).
Don't output any information on standard error.
