im2avi is a small program for making AVIs from sequences of images. It makes use of avifile for encoding video streams, so im2avi has access to all the codecs that avifile supports, including DivX ;) or Cinepak. It uses the ImageMagick++ library to load the images, so it supports a wide range of formats.
Tuxrip is a Linux bash script for ripping and encoding DVD titles in mpeg4 format (DivX, XviD, FFmpeg libavcodec). It features per title or full DVD ripping, audio extraction and encoding, support for multi-audio tracks, 2-pass video compression for a given file size and quality, compressibility testing for optimal quality and resolution determination, support for codec options, audio/video synchronization, CD burning, and automatic computer shutdown. It uses OggVorbis for encoding audio and either FFmpeg libavcodec or XviD as video codecs. It can use Ogg or Matroska containers and supports subtitles in vobsub format. Subtitles are muxed in matroska container and are automatically compressed.
shn2make works with sets of SHN or FLAC audio files and the make program to automate the burning of archive and audio CDs, and the encoding of MP3 and Ogg files. It finds the SHN or FLAC files in the current directory and verifies the MD5 checksums. It then looks for the .nfo or .txt file, finds the song names, and matches the songs to the available files. If everything is correct, it outputs the text of a Makefile. The targets of the makefile automate the various tasks that need to be done with SHN and FLAC sets. For example, "make Ogg" will uncompress and then encode all the files in the set to named and tagged Ogg Vorbis files.
The streamTranscoder is a multi-platform utility which can be used to transcode media streams from one format to another, and from one server type to another. It will read in streams of type MP3 and Vorbis from most servers (Icecast, Icecast2, Shoutcast), convert it into various formats, and send to various streaming servers.
