       vlc [OPTIONS] [ITEMS]...

       This  manual  page  documents  briefly  the  VLC	 multimedia player and

       VLC follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options startā€
       ing  with  two  dashes  (`-').	For  a precise description of options,
       please use "vlc --help".

       The complete list of VLC options depends on what plugins are  installed
       because	they  automatically  add  their	 own  options. Please use "vlc
       --longhelp --advanced" for a complete list of available options.

       VLC recognizes several URL-style items:

       *.mpg, *.vob, *.avi, *.mp3, *.ogg, *.opus
	      Various multimedia file formats

       dvd://[<device>][@<raw device>][#[<title>][:[<chapter>][:<angle>]]]
	      DVD device (for instance	dvd:///dev/dvd).  The  raw  device  is
	      optional and must have been prepared beforehand.

	      VCD device (for instance vcd:///dev/cdrom).

       udp://[@[<multicast address>][:<local port>]]
	      UDP  stream,  such  as  one sent by VLS or another VLC.  Usually
	      "udp://" is enough.

       http://<server address>[:<server port>]/[<file>]
	      HTTP stream

       rtsp://<server address>[:<server port>]/<stream name>
	      RTSP Video On Demand stream

	      Execute a playlist command. Commands are: pause (pause execution
	      of other items), and quit (close VLC).
