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.
RHEED for Linux is designed to aquire data from RHEED (Reflection High Energy Electron Diffraction) images in Molecular Beam Epitaxy and for controlling an electron beam gun. It is possible to determine growth rate of a semiconductor crystal from RHEED-Oscillations, to aquire Lines Of Interest (LOIs) in realtime, and develop incident angle dependent intensity curves. The Electron Beam Gun EK35BR from Staib Instruments is supported.
WOMP! is a micro Linux distribution on a bootable CD that takes up 13 to 18MB depending on the selected options. It does not install anything on the computer's hard drive, automatically detects your sound card, network card (including PCMCIA), Conexant soft modem (present on most notebooks), or PCMCIA modem. After booting it allows you to play movie and audio files, as well as browse image files on CDs or the local hard drive. It can also play DVDs, VCDs, and audio CDs, and browse the Web over the LAN or using PPP. It can be configured to automatically play content after booting.
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.
