OpenVIP is a flexible video-processing tool for Unix and Windows. It consists of two parts: the OpenVIP core, which is written in C/C++, and a Python GUI editor based on the timeline concept. The library can be used by other multimedia applications and is easily extensible with custom plugins (I/O formats, filters, transitions or more general modules).
MultiVideo is an image sequence viewer that is targeted to researchers in the image processing field. It features the ability to display several sequences simultaneously in multiple synchronized views, supports many sequence formats, (including formats without compression that are very useful for researchers), displays very long image sequences without loading them in memory, and runs on multiple platforms thanks to the wxWindows library.
bttvgrab is a program for grabbing video sequences using a bt848-based frame grabber card (e.g. Hauppauge WinTV, Miro PCTV...). The goal of bttvgrab is to provide high-quality grabbing suitable for video recording. Currently, this is accomplished by trying hard not to leave out a single frame, and to catch temproary delays by buffering several frames. In the future, synchronized sound will be part of it. Then you can create mpeg movies using mpeg2enc, the output files will be prepared for that, so that the conversion can be done by a simple shell script.
