The p2pd package can be used to build scalable content distribution networks (CDNs) for interactive video-on-demand (VoD) streaming. It can be used as a server, a cache, and a client, and used to construct both traditional CDNs and P2P-based CDNs that make use of client resources to stream video files. The system is network aware, attempts to make efficient use of the available resources, and adapts to server failures.
Movgrab is a command-line movie downloader for sites like YouTube. It has no dependencies; everything that's needed should be there in the tar.gz package. Movgrab can connect through an HTTP proxy, can output the download to stdout for piping into another program, and can fork into the background to free up the console. When forked into the background, its progress can still be seen in a ps list.

a2b invokes conversion tools in sequence to convert files from one type to another, possibly performing some extra processing along the way. Itis a wrapper for many programs like gif2png, latex2html, netpbm, mencoder, ffmpeg, oggenc, etc., that can convert content from one type to another. It can covert text, documents, images, audio, and video and more. Some examples: a2b test.mp3 test.ogg; mencoder_opts="-ss 60 -endpos 10" a2b video.avi clip.flv; a2b -g=subtitles dvd://8 movie.sub; a2b -q http://sam.nipl.net/ sam.aac. That last example downloads the author's Web page, converts it to text with lynx -dump, speaks the text with flite or espeak, and converts the audio file to AAC with faac.
