Vobcopy copies DVD .vob files to hard disk (thanks to libdvdread), decrypting them on the way (if libdvdcss is installed) and merges them into 2 GB files (or larger) with the name extracted from the DVD. It checks for enough free space on the destination drive and compares the copied size to the size on DVD (in case something went wrong during the copying). It can also mirror a whole DVD video part and copy single files.
The FAAC project includes the AAC encoder FAAC and decoder FAAD2. It supports several MPEG-4 object types (LC, Main, LTP, HE AAC, PS) and file formats (ADTS AAC, raw AAC, MP4), multichannel and gapless en/decoding as well as MP4 metadata tags. The codecs are compatible with standard-compliant audio applications using one or more of these profiles.
The True Audio (TTA) codec is a simple realtime lossless audio compressor. It performs lossless compression on multichannel 8, 16, and 24 bit data of Wav audio files. The compression ratios depend on the type of music file being compressed, but the compression size will generally range between 30%-70% of the original. TTA supports both ID3v1 and ID3v2 information tags.
DJWrap is an effort to create an open format for combining several MPEG audio streams into one, without losing information about the original files and without disturbing the stream with erroneous or misplaced data. To this is added MD5 checksumming of each individual substream as well as an extendable data format which will, to the furthest extent, provide both backward and forward compatibility. It also supports both DJWrap and AlbumWrap files, and therefore replaces ALBWtool, which has been discontinued.
Versatile Encoder allows you to encode your own videos into good quality DivX files. The input can be a sequence of files (as generated by blender), a single file (if you want to recompress something), or a VCD (if you need to back up a movie). This piece of software tries to guess good defaults and to help the user in making choices.
