AVInfo is a utility for displaying AVI, MPEG (1 and 2), OGM, MKV, and IFO (DVD) information. It returns the length of a clip, FPS, resolution, codec, audio and video bit rate, number of key frames, sound parameters, the number and type of streams, and the language for audio/subtitles. It then generates a file list with statistics (HTML, plain text, or CSV).
Autossh is a program to monitor and automatically reestablish SSH connections. It is similar to rstunnel (Reliable SSH Tunnel), however, it is implemented in C, and is easier to set up and use, especially for connections to multiple hosts. Autossh has been compiled and tested on OpenBSD, Linux, and Solaris, and should run without needing changes on FreeBSD and NetBSD.
