# NAME

dtas-console - rudimentary curses console client for dtas-player

# SYNOPSIS

dtas-console

# DESCRIPTION

dtas-console displays the elapsed decoder time of the track, which can be
used as an approximation of the current playback time of a track.

It cannot display an accurate playback time due to variable buffering
in the sinks and pipes.

See dtas-player_protocol(7) for a detailed description of the protocol.

# KEYBOARD CONTROL

Key bindings are inspired partially by mplayer(1)

- 'j'/'k' - seek backward/forward 5 seconds
- LEFT/RIGHT - seek backward/forward 10 seconds
- UP/DOWN - seek forward/backward 1 minute
- PGUP/PGDWN - seek forward/backward 10 minutes
- SPACE - toggle play/pause state of the playback
- 'p'/'P' - decrease/increase timer resolution
- BACKSPACE - seek to the beginning of the track
- 9/0 - decrease/increase ReplayGain preamp
- 'f'/'F' - decrease/increase ReplayGain fallback_gain value
- 'r'/'R' - cycle forward/backwards through ReplayGain modes
- 'q'/Ctrl-C - exit dtas-console

# ENVIRONMENT

DTAS_PLAYER_SOCK - the path to the dtas-player control socket.
This defaults to ~/.dtas/player.sock

# CAVEATS

Increasing timer resolution increases the number of CPU wakeups and
power consumption.   This defeats the efforts of dtas-player
configurations which use large buffers (especially in the sink) to
reduce wakeups and power consumption.

In rare cases (or poorly-configured systems), increased wakeups from
dtas-console will also increase contention with the sound card,
negatively affecting audio quality even if CPU utilization is not
a problem.
