NewVideoRecorder is a high quality video capture toolkit for Linux. It includes deep buffering of audio and video to reduce frame dropping, a smooth dropping algorithm to keep the video smooth if dropping is required, and dynamic stretching of the audio stream to exactly match the video stream.

It can produce QuickTime, AVI, NuppelVideo 0.52 files, MPEG-1 files, and all files supported by ffmpeg (through the ffmpeg library). It also includes tools and utilities for high quality video streaming (multicast and unicast).

KutttPech is a MPEG-player in Java, capable of playing MPEG-1 within your browser without downloading any irritating plug-in. It is specialized in handling live MPEG streams, but can play files just as easely. It plays Layer 2 audio on most browsers with java 1.1/1.2 and on all browsers with 1.3. It can cut P-FRAMES and B-FRAMES if the machine is too slow to handle them, so as to maintain a small lag. It can run outside a browser as an application and is reasonably fast.
