XaoS is a fast, portable, real-time, and interactive fractal zoomer. It displays the Mandelbrot set (among other escape time fractals) and allows you zoom smoothly into the fractal. Various coloring modes are provided for both the points inside and outside the selected set. In addition, switching between Julia and Mandelbrot fractal types and on-the-fly plane switching is provided.
Coherence is a set of DLNA/UPnP devices, like MediaServer and MediaRenderer. In addition, it includes a well-designed framework to extend other applications with DLNA/UPnP functionality. It also has an emerging DBus API, enabling these applications to participate in digital living networks. It supports Playstation 3 (PS3), XBox, and many other devices.
Xvid (formerly XviD) is an open source MPEG-4 video codec, implementing MPEG-4 Simple Profile, Advanced Simple Profile, and Advanced Video Coding standards. It is written in C with assembler optimizations for quality and speed (including MMX, SSE, and 3Dnow! code for i386 and AltiVec for PowerPC), and is especially optimized towards offline, multi-pass compression for storage and archival purposes.
The TOXTOX browser is a Mozilla-based browser for your television. Packed with features, it will provide a real multimedia experience for your bedroom or living room while its controls remain easy and accessible with a keyboard or a remote control. With built-in support for Jabber/XMPP, it will be a platform for new and innovative social and interactive media. It can be customized by installing user-contributed addons and themes.
The media hive is a streaming media server and Web-based content/playlist manager. It emphasizes usability by making it easy to manage a media catalog that contains multiple media types (mp3, mp4, ogg, flac, mpg, and avi), and by providing a very full-featured playlist. It also emphasizes extensibility by making it easy to develop new media parsers, playlist actions, event handlers, skins, and more. It has an entire custom tag library devoted to skin development, making it simple for the non-developer to create radically different Web-based user interfaces. It has no installation dependencies and runs on multiple platforms.
Smitten differs from traditional media centres in three major ways. It contains no media playback at all, which makes it very small (and suitable for porting to embedded systems) and quick to initialize. It targets a TV display and interface, which means there's less information on any particular screen, and a much simpler control interface consisting of left, right, up, down, and select. No mouse is required. It is also highly skinnable, and cross-platform to most systems. Essentially, it provides an easy-to-use menu system that allows the user to navigate a hierarchy of files, and view them using an (external) tool.
