dvd::rip is a full featured DVD copy program written in Perl. It provides an easy-to-use but feature-rich GTK+ GUI to control almost all aspects of the ripping and transcoding process. It uses the widely known video processing swissknife, transcode, and many other Open Source tools.
MoviX is a small Linux distro that transforms your PC in a powerful multimedia box. After booting your PC with MoviX, a user-friendly console menu will allow you to use MPlayer (www.mplayerhq.hu) to play any DVD/VCD, video/audio files (most noticeably DivX, AVI, MPEG, QuickTime, WMV, ASF, MP3, and OGG/VORBIS), TV (provided you have a TV card), and radio stations on the Internet (if you are connected to a LAN). Since the entire operating system is loaded into RAM, you do not even need a hard disk to use MoviX.
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.
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.
vdr2dvd is a simple script, handling all needed steps to create a DVD out of a VDR recording, including the burn process itself. The script merges multiple .vdr files to a big one per DVD title, converts it into a PS stream using ds.jar, multiplexes to the correct DVD-stream, creates the DVD structure, uses mkisofs to create the ISO image and uses dvdrecord to burn the image to the disc.
The Interactive Television Publishing System (ITPS) offers a simple way to produce ATVEF-A compliant ETV features. At the heart of the system is a database that separates form (in this case, device-specific markup code) from content (text and images appropriate to show segments). Database content is published to HTML via Perl using device-specific modules. A handful of additional static HTML pages, such as the search form, make up the remainder of the code required to support a particular client device. Devices are routed to appropriate pages via a "sniffer" page, implemented using the XSSI syntax available in Apache 1.3 or higher.
