QUVIRC(5) quvi Manual QUVIRC(5)

quvirc - The simple configuration file for the quvi program

A quvi configuration file consists of groups of key-value pairs similar to the so called .ini-like configuration files. quvi uses the GLib to parse the configuration. GLib refers to these files as key files, for lack of a better name.
The lines beginning with a # are considered as comments. You can annotate your configuration file using this character. All text after the comment character to the end of the line is ignored.
GKeyFile has some limitations that should be considered when you use a configuration file to configure quvi.
Multiple keys
Each group in each configuration file may contain the same key multiple times, note however that the last key value replaces the previously defined value.
Multiple groups
Configuration files may contain multiple groups with the same file, they are however, merged together.
The syntax of the configuration file is described in detail in the Desktop Entry Specification at
GKeyFile is described in detail in the GLib reference documentation at

The program will by default search the quvirc file from the typical configuration file paths. These paths (order and location) are determined by GLib, based on how it was configured.
•Print the search paths:
$ quvi info --print-config-paths
Each of the same group variable value read from another quvirc replaces the current value. For example:
stream = foo
~/.config/quvi/quvirc [core] stream = bar
The program would use "bar" as the value.

A given quvirc could look like:
check-mode-offline = true
print-format = json
subtitle-language = cc_en,tts_en
stream = 480p,720p,best
#verbosity = debug
[dump] query-metainfo = true
[exec] enable-stdout = true external = echo %t,mplayer %u
[get] output-regex = %t:/\\w|\\s/,%t:s/\\s\\s+/ / output-name = %t_%i.%e resume-from = -1 throttle = 500
[http] #user-agent = foo/1.0 enable-cookies = true
