MARF is a general cross-platform framework with a collection of algorithms for audio (voice, speech, and sound) and natural language text analysis and recognition, along with sample applications (identification, NLP, etc.) of its use. MARF can run distributed over the network (CORBA, Java RMI, and Java XML-RPC Web Services) and may act as a library in applications or be used as a source for learning and extension.
file2divx3pass is a simple frontend to mencoder for converting any media-file to Divx, with features such as an automatic video bitrate calculator, an automatic bits per pixel calculator, and 1-pass, 2-pass, and 3-pass Divx encoding. It can encode any media file supported by mencoder, such as MPEG-1, MPEG-2, ASF, WMV, OGM, and even RM (buggy) and CUE/BIN. file2divx3pass is also equipped with batch encoding.
MP3FS is a read-only FUSE filesystem that transcodes FLAC audio files to MP3 on the fly when opened and read. It is useful to enable the use of your FLAC collection with software and/or hardware that only understands MP3s. It is also a novel alternative to traditional MP3 encoder applications. Just use your favorite file browser to select the files you want encoded, and copy them somewhere.
Avifile Glue for mpeg2_movie started as a simple patch against heroinewarrior mpeg2_movie to utilize libavifile, however the project got out of hand and currently supports the Nuppelvideo file format for input and the MJPEGtools' mpeg2enc YUV4MPEG format for output. Originally, this project's intent was not to become a new package, but only to provide direct AVI to MPEG conversion for the GNU/Unix/Linux community until the core feature (linking against libaviplay) was integrated into the main encoder, but this goal has been abandoned. The project's current goad is to enable as many encoders as possible with the ability to read AVI, NUV, and QT.
A.M.I.C.U.S. (Automatic Multimedia Installation Configuration Utility System) helps users quickly and easily install and configure MythTV on generic PC hardware. It uses the Debian Netinst CD to install GNU/Linux and just the required packages to allow a functional MythTV on low end hardware.
Linux Video Maker is application for generating DVD or (S)VCD structures that are ready to record on CD or DVD. It is a GUI for transcode, mplex, DVDAuthor, and few other programs. It makes the creation of DVDs and VCDs easier, especially for beginners. Linux Video Maker prevents many mistakes, especially in the conversion process, which can take a lot of time.
AudioMove is a handy GUI-based batch audio file converter/copier program. It can convert various audio file formats to WAV or AIFF format (using libsndfile), and do high-quality sample-rate conversion at the same time (using libsamplerate). It is multi-threaded for maximum throughput, can handle thousands of files per batch, and does recursive directory scans.
