TVEz is a browser-based system to manage movies, shows, and clips stored on local or remote file systems. It is also a front end to the XINE video player that makes the control of the player possible from the Web browser. It retrieves information about movies, including an image of the cover, from IMDB, and stores that information in a MySQL database. The database entries are fully searchable by director, writers, actors, titles, etc. It includes a rating system for movies by which movies can be sorted such that your most favorite ones appear on top of the list. The Web-based configuration is generic enough so that any kind of show can easily be added to the shows listing. The playlist is fully manageable.
Pactester is a tool to test proxy auto-configuration (PAC) files. PAC files are used by browsers to identify the correct proxy server for a given URL. Since the PAC file evaluation mechanism is generated inside the browser and cannot be accessed from outside, the only way to tell which proxy your browser will use for a specific URL is manual inspection of the PAC file. Unfortunately, this approach is error prone and quickly becomes impractical for large and complex PAC files. Pactester resolves this issue by simulating browser behavior.
