LiVES is a simple to use yet powerful video effects, editing, conversion, and playback system aimed at the digital video artist and VJ. It runs under Linux, BSD, Mac OS X/Darwin, IRIX, and openMosix. It is frame and sample accurate, can handle almost all types of video, and is fully extendable through plugins and the included plugin builder tool. It can also be controlled remotely using OSC.
VLC media player is a multimedia player, framework, streamer, and encoder. It can play inputs like files, network streams, DVDs, audio CDs, Blu-Rays, capture devices, and screens. It can play most audio and video codecs and formats (MPEG 1/2/4, H264, VC-1, DivX, WMV, Vorbis, AC3, AAC, MKV, etc.), but can also be used to convert to different formats and/or send streams through the network.
RHEED for Linux is designed to aquire data from RHEED (Reflection High Energy Electron Diffraction) images in Molecular Beam Epitaxy and for controlling an electron beam gun. It is possible to determine growth rate of a semiconductor crystal from RHEED-Oscillations, to aquire Lines Of Interest (LOIs) in realtime, and develop incident angle dependent intensity curves. The Electron Beam Gun EK35BR from Staib Instruments is supported.
mpeg2videotools is a C library and set of tools for encoding, decoding, verification, and analysis of MPEG-2 video. Designed for completeness and correctness rather than speed, it supports 422 Profile and High Profile bitstreams. A PSNR tool is included for comparing uncompressed video to encoded MPEG-2 video.
Twibright Luminaplex and Hyperluma 2 are two algorithms and an example implementation developed to encode (chroma subsample) Y'CbCr video at 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 scheme with higher quality than was currently possible. Ordinary encoding introduces errors, while Luminaplex eliminates virtually all error by finding the values of minimum error. It is published as a prior art to prevent coverage by a software patent.
Twibright Pitchotron analyzes any MP3 into the semitones that are being played, displayed in a scrolling coloured graph on a video. It aids musical transcription. It includes coloured piano key stickers that enable accompanying arbitrary music and improvising even to musical analphabets.
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.
