ANDREW's Not a DVD Ripping and Encoding Wizard, but a command-line interface that simplifies the use of some programs to create AVI, Matroska, MP4, or OGM files from DVDs. ANDREW runs in interactive or batch mode; works on-the-fly or ripping DVDs to the hard drive; handles progressive, telecine, and interlaced NTSC and PAL formats; selects multiple audio and subtitle tracks by preferences or in full manual mode; splits movies into several files or encodes them by target size or video bit rate; and more.
OGMRip is an application and a set of libraries for ripping and encoding DVDs into AVI/OGM files using a wide variety of codecs. It relies on mplayer, mencoder, ogmtools, oggenc, and lame to perform its tasks. The GUI features a clean HIG-compliant GNOME 2 interface and tries to minimize (as much as possible) esoteric settings.
SCRAP (Security Camera Recording APplication) is a security camera recording application that is capable of working with any video4linux compatible device. It can grab frames from multiple inputs on a single device or from multiple capture boards at the same time. It has a very reliable motion detection system that records only when movement is detected, ignoring light changes. Videos are recorded using XviD's MPEG-4 codec. A recording archive management system is included.
SubTimer is an easy-to-use subtitle editor based on SubStation Alpha, an abandoned freeware project for Windows. It features simple editing (cut, copy, paste, line split and merge, insert, and delete), time shifting for shifting a range of subtitles by a specified amount of time, timing based on an audio file (the audio wave is displayed on the screen, and the user can pick the start and end times by clicking on it), and UniCode support. It supports Substation Alpha (srt), SubRip (ssa), and plain text subtitle formats.
Stopmotion is an application for creating stop motion animations from images imported from a v4l (or similar) device. The animations can be saved as .sto files and exported as video files. Grabbing of images and video export is plug-in based, so it is easy to use your favourite programs such as mencoder, ffmpeg, dvgrab, and vgrabbj to do the job.
