ZoneMinder is a suite of applications intended for use in video camera security applications, including theft prevention and child or family member monitoring. It supports capture, analysis, recording, and monitoring of video data coming from one or more video or network cameras attached to a Linux system. It also features a user-friendly Web interface which allows viewing, archival, review, and deletion of images and movies captured by the cameras. The image analysis system is highly configurable, permitting retention of specific events, while eliminating false positives. ZoneMinder supports both directly connected and network cameras and is built around the definition of a set of individual 'zones' of varying sensitivity and functionality for each camera. This allows the elimination of regions which should be ignored or the definition of areas which will alarm if various thresholds are exceeded in conjunction with other zones. All management, control, and other functions are supported through the Web interface.

Kalva is a KDE video recorder that is simple to use and easy to setup. You can use it to schedule a single movie recording by choosing the date from a calendar. A serial recording may be scheduled by choosing the days of the week. You can store recording options in various profiles for different hardware and quality levels. Kalva can import channellists from programs like xawtv or xawtv4, and can generate a new one using scantv.
gpgm2srt is Perl script for the conversion of graphical DVD subtitles into SRT/SUB text subtitles. It contains its own OCR (Optical Character Recognition) algorithm mastering diacritics and italics, and is equipped with a graphical interface.

yaydl (yet another youtube downloader) is a commandline-oriented tool that allows you to download videos from video sharing Web sites (currently YouTube, Myvideo, Dailymotion, Clipfish, video.google, Metacafe, Sevenload, and Vimeo). The use of external programs like mplayer or ffmpeg enables it to re-encode the videos or to rip the audio off a video.
a2b invokes conversion tools in sequence to convert files from one type to another, possibly performing some extra processing along the way. Itis a wrapper for many programs like gif2png, latex2html, netpbm, mencoder, ffmpeg, oggenc, etc., that can convert content from one type to another. It can covert text, documents, images, audio, and video and more. Some examples: a2b test.mp3 test.ogg; mencoder_opts="-ss 60 -endpos 10" a2b video.avi clip.flv; a2b -g=subtitles dvd://8 movie.sub; a2b -q http://sam.nipl.net/ sam.aac. That last example downloads the author's Web page, converts it to text with lynx -dump, speaks the text with flite or espeak, and converts the audio file to AAC with faac.
