VXL is a set of portable C++ libraries designed for computer vision research and implementation. Numerics, imaging, and geometry are provided by stand-alone core libraries, with easy to use APIs and sophisticated processing algorithms. Other libraries provide stereo, video, structure from motion, probability modeling, GUI design, classification, robust estimation, feature tracking, topology, 3d imaging, and much more. It is written and used by an international team from academia and industry.
ETV is a personal video recorder (PVR) especially suited for European use. It can schedule by hand or according to rules based on XMLTV. It can also time-shift. The recorder runs on Linux, and the scheduler and frontend on either Linux or Windows. Its GUI is designed to be used with a remote on a TV screen.
The Kolmogorov project provides tools for machine perception and tutorials for machine learning, machine perception, and statistics. It supports fast face detection in images and information on Hidden Markov models, Gabor filters, Multivariate Logistic Regression, and Stochastic Differential Equations. It includes MPISearch, a library for detecting objects in images very quickly (real-time in some cases).
TiVo File Decoder software converts a .TiVo file (produced by the TiVoToGo functionality on recent TiVo software releases) to a normal MPEG file. This has the same functionality as using TiVo's supplied DirectShow DLL on Windows with a tool such as DirectShowDump, but is portable to different architectures and operating systems, and runs on the command line using files or pipes. The conversion still requires the valid MAK of the TiVo which recorded the file, so it cannot be used to circumvent their protection, simply to provide the same level of access as is already available on Windows.
Flava is a personal video recording system which can be distributed over multiple nodes to perform the actions of recording, encoding, and storing television shows, as well as an adaptive management system, which can, among other things, track a series of programs and allow multiple users to make requests.
PyMei is a Python media center application. It's designed to run as a full screen application on an HTPC, navigated by a keyboard or an LIRC input device. It plays videos or shows other types of media using external programs like mplayer. With its plugin support and themeability, it's aiming to be a very extensible and customizable media interface.
YourTube is a YouTube video downloader for mobile phones that support J2ME. Its main features are the ability to search YouTube videos, support for multiple video formats (MP4, FLV, 3GP), support for background downloading, and a download queue. The minimum requirements are MIDP-2.0, CLDC-1.0, and JSR 75 (File Connection API).
