Cammgr supports multiple images per camera, default images for inactive cameras, per- user/host/camera notifications, and an easy-to- use configuration file. It can scan Apache log files to auto-initiate image capture, and tune capture frequency can to the minimum needed to ensure that clients receive a new image on request.
AVInfo is a utility for displaying AVI, MPEG (1 and 2), OGM, MKV, and IFO (DVD) information. It returns the length of a clip, FPS, resolution, codec, audio and video bit rate, number of key frames, sound parameters, the number and type of streams, and the language for audio/subtitles. It then generates a file list with statistics (HTML, plain text, or CSV).
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.
vobwalker walks through a .VOB file containing DVD video and extracts lists of VOBUs to a set of chapter files. Each file begins with a VOBU that has no predecessor (i.e., does not point at a preceding VOBU) and contains the list of VOBUs found by following the successor pointers along the list. Although it does not adjust the pointers in the VOBUs (but merely copies them from one file to another), the created chapter files are suitable for use by a program such as dvdauthor that expects to be responsible for filling in the VOBUs.
vobps2fix is a tool that runs through a set of .VOB files created by dvdauthor and tweaks them so that the Playstation 2 will play them without pausing. The Playstation 2 is a bit finicky about the DVD format and pauses frequently when encountering certain timestamps, even if the DVDs work on other players.
