Garbure is a collection of dedicated distributions. Each distribution provides carefully selected tools for a specific target domain, and is completed with examples and documentation. The set of distributions forms an entity, but each distribution works also on its own. All elements are arranged in the same way for each distribution.
PIVIAU is a PHP/MySQL Web based gallery for pictures, videos, and audio that supports tags and EXIF. Albums and pictures have searchable tag, country, city, place, date, subject, and author. An RSS feed is available for every seach you can do, or for recent pictures. There is an AJAX-powered slideshow. Pictures are resized using PHP GD image functions. Videos are viewable a la Google Video using a video flash player. Audio (WAV and MP3) is supported via the embed HTML tag. EXIF is supported via PHP exif functions to extract the picture date.
Hasciicam makes it possible to have live ASCII video on the Web. It captures video from a TV card and renders it into ASCII, formatting the output into an HTML page with a refresh tag or in a live ASCII window or in a simple text file as well, giving anyone that has a bttv card, a Linux box, and a cheap modem line the ability to show a live asciivideo feed that can be browsable without any need for a plugin, Java, etc.

KatchTV is an "Internet TV" application for KDE. It makes it easy to subscribe to "TV" channels from all over the Internet in the form of podcasts, so that you can browse channels, download shows, and watch them, all from one convenient interface. It is very similar to Democracy TV, but focuses on KDE integration, using KHTMLPart and embedded players such as kaffeine. It's much faster and lighter on resources if you run a KDE desktop without GTK apps. Installation is easy as long as your distribution has PyKDE and PyQt.
Cammgr manages a collection of web cameras. It will bring cameras online or offline, and initiate or suspend image capture operations. Any camera can be controlled provided a driver is available. Cammgr supports multiple images per camera, default images for inactive cameras, per- user/host/camera notifications, and an easy-to- use configuration file. It can scan Apache log files to auto-initiate image capture, and tune capture frequency can to the minimum needed to ensure that clients receive a new image on request.
The Helix DNA Client is the media playback engine used by the RealOne Player. It contains standards-compliant H.263 and MP3 decoders, RealAudio and RealVideo binaries, and sample user interfaces. The media engine is capable of playing multiple streams simultaneously, maintaining synchronization between streams, and handling RTSP, RTP, and HTTP streaming network playback.
