LiVES is a simple to use yet powerful video effects, editing, conversion, and playback system aimed at the digital video artist and VJ. It runs under Linux, BSD, Mac OS X/Darwin, IRIX, and openMosix. It is frame and sample accurate, can handle almost all types of video, and is fully extendable through plugins and the included plugin builder tool. It can also be controlled remotely using OSC.
digiKam is an advanced digital photo management application that makes importing and organizing digital photos a trivial task. Photos can be organized in albums, which can be sorted chronologically, by directory layout, or by custom collections, and they can be tagged, commented, and rated. digiKam makes use of a fast and robust database to store meta-information, which makes adding and editing comments and tags very reliable. Metadata can also be stored inside pictures using Exif and IPTC. An embedded image editor and a standalone application named showfoto have simple but powerful features for editing your pictures with filters and correction tools.
LibRaw is a library for reading RAW files obtained from digital photo cameras (CRW/CR2, NEF, RAF, DNG, and others). LibRaw is based on the source codes of the dcraw utility, though some of the drawbacks of dcraw have been eliminated. The users of the library are provided with an API to be used when writing their software programs.
HOMER is a robust, carrier-grade, scalable SIP capturing system and monitoring application with hEP, IP Proto4 (IPIP) encapsulation, and port mirroring/monitoring support right out of the box, ready to process and store large amounts of signaling with instant searches, end-to-end analysis, and drill-down capabilities for ITSPs, VoIP providers, and trunk suppliers using SIP signaling.
v4l-utils is a collection of various video4linux (V4L) and DVB utilities. libv4l is an accompanying collection of libraries that adds a thin abstraction layer on top of video4linux2 (V4L2) devices. The purpose of this layer is to make it easy for application writers to support a wide variety of devices without having to write separate code for different devices in the same class. It consists of 3 different libraries. libv4lconvert offers functions to convert from any (known) pixel format to V4l2_PIX_FMT_BGR24 or V4l2_PIX_FMT_YUV420. libv4l1 offers the (deprecated) v4l1 API on top of v4l2 devices, independent of the drivers for those devices supporting v4l1 compatibility (which many v4l2 drivers do not). libv4l2 offers the v4l2 API on top of v4l2 devices, while adding support for the application transparent libv4lconvert conversion where necessary.
dabba is a set of distributed network monitoring tools for Linux. Its main use is to gather or scatter actions on a network such as traffic capture, replay, generation, or monitoring. It was inspired by the Dabba Walla system in Mumbai where meals are regrouped and dispatched throughout the city with a high efficiency rate, every day of the year. The project has three main components: libdabba, a low-level zero-copy network library, dabbad, a multi-threaded task manager and IPC query processor, and dabba, a CLI for communicating with dabbad and submitting tasks.
