abcde is a frontend to cdparanoia, wget, cd-discid, id3, and your favorite Ogg Vorbis (the default), MP3, FLAC, Ogg Speex, or MPP (Musepack) encoder. It grabs an entire CD and converts each track to the desired format, then comments or ID3-tags each file, all with one command. It supports multiple output in a single CD read, the creation of a single track from a CD, resume operation, CD concatenation, volume normalization, gapless encoding (with LAME), parallelization, SMP, proxies, customizable filename organization and munging, playlist generation, distributed encoding via distmp3, and more.
The CDDB/CDDB_get Perl module gets the CDDB info for an audio CD. The included script was intended as a demo for CDDB_get, but over time it has gained powerful features like the ability to write to a database, offline mode, HTTP mode (including proxy), saving in standard XMCD format, and writing 'lame' commands.
Soundboard is a sound cueing program designed for theatrical use. It aims to be simple to use and maintain cross platform compatibility so that a sound designer who uses a Mac can build a show and have it play back on the theatre's Windows-based playback computer. Soundboard provides a cross platform and open source alternative to programs such as QLab and SFX. It is designed to be simple enough for high school students and community theatres to use, and yet robust enough to be a viable application at a regional theatre.
The PyGE project aims to provide free cross-platform desktop applications to make the growing collection of copyright-free literary works from Project Gutenberg more accessible to the typical computer user. The suite includes PyGETS, a program for searching and downloading available PG e-texts, PyGEMZ, a program for converting e-texts to a format suitable for both desktop and Palm PDA usage, and PyGERS, a program for comfortably viewing e-texts which includes basic text-to-speech capabilities.
ctrlxmms is a small Perl script designed to increase the useability of XMMS. With it, you can use most of the common GUI functions of XMMS from the CLI. You also have a few handy commands which are not available from the GUI. Together with lirc and a remote (eg. Anir Multimedia Magic), this is a wonderful tool.
XChat-XMMS allows XMMS to be controlled from within XChat. It can send out messages to channels or other IRC users, and supports searching playlists with Perl regular expresions, DCC transfers, understands MP3 and Ogg-Vorbis tags, caches playlists for quick searches, and allows remote playlist browsing via /msg. It also supports auto- messages and auto-topics.
dvd2mp3 is a Perl script that converts audio tracks on a DVD into id3-tagged MP3 files. It was written for Linux, though it could probably be used on other Unixes with little trouble. It requires Mplayer, LAME, lsdvd, MP3::Tag, and Term::ReadLine. It is intended to be an easy way to convert convert concert DVDs (as well as other DVDs that have interesting audio tracks) into MP3s.
