.SH NAME
cubemap \- scalable video reflector, designed to be used with VLC
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B cubemap
.RI [ options ]
.RI [ FILE ]
.SH DESCRIPTION
.B cubemap
is a high-performance, high-availability video reflector,
specifically made for use with VLC.
.PP
.IP \[bu] 2
High-performance, through a design with multiple worker threads,
epoll and sendfile (yes, sendfile); a 2GHz quadcore can saturate
10 gigabit Ethernet, given a modern kernel, a modern NIC
and the right kernel tuning.
.IP \[bu]
High-availability. You can change any part of the configuration
(and even upgrade to a newer version of Cubemap) by changing cubemap.config
and sending a SIGHUP; all clients will continue as if nothing had happened
(unless you delete the stream they are watching, of course).
Cubemap also survives the encoder dying and reconnecting.
.IP \[bu]
Support for setting max pacing rate through the fq packet scheduler
(depends on Linux 3.13 or newer).
.IP \[bu]
Reflects anything VLC can reflect over HTTP, even the muxes VLC
has problems reflecting itself (in particular, FLV).
.IP \[bu]
Multicast support, both for sending and receiving (supports only protocols
that can go over UDP, e.g. MPEG-TS). Supports both ASM and SSM.
.IP \[bu]
IPv4 support. Yes, Cubemap even supports (some) legacy protocols.
.SH OPTIONS
.TP
\fB\-\-test\-config\fR, \fB\-t\fR
tests the config and exits
.TP
\fBFILE\fR
configuration file (defaults to cubemap.config in the current directory)
