BitHorde is a fast and lightwheight content distribution system, aimed for high-performance decentralized content distribution. Its key features are high performance, a light footprint, and live streaming. Potential applications range from content delivery networks, including HD streaming setups, to offline-caching filesystems, to file sharing, to distribution of in-game maps or textures.
DVBlast is a simple and powerful MPEG-2 transport stream demux and streaming application with several input methods, such as Linux DVB supported cards (DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-C, DVB-T, etc.), ASI cards, and UDP/RTP streams carrying a transport stream. It outputs one or several UDP/RTP streams carrying transport streams with hardware or software PID filtering, PID-based or service-based demultiplexing, and optional descrambling via a CAM device.
MSCP (Media Server Control Panel) is a management interface for Icecast2 with comprehensive functionality. An administrator can create users and then edit access rights, set the number of listener slots, enable or disable AutoDJ, etc. Users may change several parameters of the Icecast2 server and the AutoDJ via a Web-based interface. Audio compression formats supported by the AutoDJ are MP3, Ogg Vorbis, and FLAC. MSCP does not require an SQL server and runs on an independent Web server. It also sets Icecast2 to Shoutcast-compatible mode.
RTSPdump is a tool for downloading a multimedia stream from a Windows Media server (WMServer). It accepts rtsp:// and mms:// URLs. It supports both UDP and TCP traffic. The stream can be saved into a WMV file for archiving or timeshifting purposes or passed through stdout to another program for processing or immediate viewing. It has also limited support for other brands of servers that also provide RTSP streaming.
The Resilient Streaming Protocol (RSP) is a one-way IP/UDP media streaming protocol that was developed to provide high reliability audio streaming between the mountainchill.com Internet radio station's rural studios and SHOUTcast servers. Although the protocol operates in a unidirectional fashion (without listener ack/resend packets), it does support optional listener reporting and packet quality tracking. A streaming server called rspServer is included. It accepts multiple RSP stream sources, providing both RSP and SHOUTcast compatible relaying and transcoding. The source code package also includes a command-line encoder and decoders.
