dvdspanky is a CLI tool for converting video files into DVD compatible MPEG streams. It is designed to be easy to use no matter the input source, to automate common transcoding tasks, and provide powerful features such as specifying the destination file size and calculated clipping and letter-boxing. It provides a front-end to transcode, MJPEG tools, mplayer, and feh. The output is ready to use in programs such as dvdauthor.
libh264bitstream provides a complete set of functions to read and write video streams conforming to the ITU H264 (MPEG4-AVC) video standard. The main design goal is to provide a complete, fully standards-compliant library for reading and writing H264 bitstreams. Reading and writing headers (sequence and picture parameter sets, slice headers, etc.) is fully implemented.
homeTVstream is a collection of shell scripts and a PHP-based Web page for watching TV on your LAN computers. It is based on VLC, and encodes and streams video using port 8080 in an MMS stream. You can watch it with VLC by using the URL mmsh://yourserverip:8080/, with any other MMS-capable player by using the URL mms://yourserverip:8080/, or just by opening the TV page in your Web browser.
Ipod movie maker is a dialog window bash script that allows you to merge *.txt subtitles with movie files and save the result in AVI format. You may convert many kinds of video to .mp4, which is an iPod Video compatible format. You will be only questioned about the location of a source movie, subtitles, encoding (default is WINDOWS-1250), font location (default is /home/$USER/.mplayer/font/subfont.ttf), and where to save the resulting .mp4 file. You can have each work done separately, or have whole process done at once, from hardcoding subtitles to encoding to iPod format.
Python Audio Tools is a collection of audio handling programs that work from the command line. These include programs for CD extraction, track conversion from one audio format to another, track renaming and retagging, track identification, CD burning from tracks, and more. It supports internationalized track filenames and metadata using Unicode. It works with high-definition, multi-channel audio as well as CD-quality. Track conversion uses multiple CPUs or CPU cores if available to greatly speed the transcoding process. Track metadata can be retrieved from MusicBrainz, FreeDB, or compatible servers. Audio formats supported are WAV, FLAC, WavPack, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, M4A, Apple Lossless, and more.
Perl text2html is an HTML 4.01/CSS2 project that converts pure plain text files into very informative and professional looking HTML documentation pages. The text files require no markup whatsoever; just naturally written text. This utility predates the now similar Python-based asciidoc.
mkscreens.sh is a small wrapper script around MPlayer and ImageMagick to generate collated thumbnails (a.k.a. "screens") from video streams, similar to the feature found in Media Player Classic. It tries to fit the maximum number of thumbnails of a given pixel width into predefined compound image dimensions. It can handle every seekable video stream that MPlayer can handle (AVI, MPEG, MKV, etc.), including DVD images, in which case it processes the longest title.
The Epeios MIDI to XML converter makes it possible to convert binary MIDI files to a format that allows them to be handled effectively with tools like CVS. If you put, using your favorite MIDI sequencer, the CVS '$Id$' tag (or other CVS tags) in the comment tag of the MIDI file, the changes made to this tag by CVS are propagated into the MIDI file.
