The JAVE (Java Audio Video Encoder) library is a Java wrapper on the ffmpeg project. Developers can take take advantage of JAVE to transcode audio and video files from one format to another. For example, you can transcode an AVI file to an MPEG one, you can separate and transcode audio and video tracks, and you can resize videos, changing their sizes and proportions. Many other formats, containers, and operations are supported by JAVE.
get_iplayer allows a user to stream or make recordings of any BBC iPlayer TV (H.264/Quicktime), BBC iPlayer Radio (MP3/AAC/RealAudio), or BBC Podcasts (MP3/AAC). It downloads iPlayer subtitles, metadata, and thumbnails. It has full PVR functionality for automatic searching, queuing, and stream recording. Its plug-in architecture allows third-party channels to be added. Live and embedded iPlayer TV and Radio recording and streaming is also supported. The optional Web PVR Manager allows full PVR searching, recording, and playback support of available and recorded material.
MediaZoo is an online personal media library and player that allows users listen to their music and invite close friends to their music room. Its mission is to allow users, musicians, and developers to start collaborating on creating a unique, open, and free music experience in the cloud.
lilypond-kde4 is a base package for KDE 4.1 with basic tools to make working with the GNU LilyPond music typesetter in KDE 4 easier. It contains a KatePart indent script, icons for *.ly files, and a powerful textedit protocol handler. The textedit protocol handler opens the preferred editor application when you click on notes in the LilyPond PDF output, but it can also directly interact via D-Bus with specialized LilyPond editing applications. This package can be the foundation for different LilyPond editing applications for KDE 4.1. This package is not needed anymore in KDE 4.2.
m9u is a music server, similar to mpd or xmms2. It sits in the background, waiting for commands to be delivered via a 9p file system. m9u embraces the Unix philosophy of doing one thing well. As such, it does not try to catalog or otherwise organize music, but aims for the more humble goal of simply playing it. A side effect of this approach is that m9u is trivially extensible to domains aside from music (for example, an image slideshow).
crtmpserver it is a high performance streaming server able to stream (live or recorded) in the following technologies: to and from Flash (RTMP, RTMPE, RTMPS, RTMPT, RTMPTE), to and from embedded devices (such as iPhone and Android), from surveillance cameras, and with IP-TV using MPEG-TS and RTSP/RTCP/RTP protocols. Also, crtmpserver can be used as a high performance rendesvous server. For example, it enables you to do audio/video conferencing, online gaming, online collaboration, and simple or complex chat applications.
Smitten differs from traditional media centres in three major ways. It contains no media playback at all, which makes it very small (and suitable for porting to embedded systems) and quick to initialize. It targets a TV display and interface, which means there's less information on any particular screen, and a much simpler control interface consisting of left, right, up, down, and select. No mouse is required. It is also highly skinnable, and cross-platform to most systems. Essentially, it provides an easy-to-use menu system that allows the user to navigate a hierarchy of files, and view them using an (external) tool.
