Automates most tasks on video and audio streaming.

Besides being a free/libre software, its goals are:

  • Move past command-line based streaming, by automating things.
  • Provide audio/video feedback for the volunteer at the station to monitor the streaming.

Its current features include:

  • Behave slightly differently according to user actions or loss of the feed.
  • GTK+ graphical user interface.
  • Ease to switch between testing mode -- for testing the audio and video chain without broadcasting -- to stream mode, which broadcasts the feeds.
  • In the event of main camera source failure, ABYSS changes the pipeline to fetch the video source from a backup USB webcam and then starts broadcasting again.
  • Each stream is actually recorded locally in three forms to allow easy post-processing: audio-only, raw-video, and audio-video.

Was used during LibrePlanet 2015 and 2016.

ABYSS was previously know as Libre-Streamer.

asciinema player is a terminal session player written in ClojureScript. Contrary to other "video" players asciinema player doesn't play heavy-weight video files (.mp4, .webm etc) but instead it plays light-weight terminal session files called asciicasts (simple .json files).

Asciicast is a capture of terminal's raw output and thus the player comes with its own terminal emulator based on Paul Williams' parser for ANSI-compatible video terminals. It covers only the display part of the emulation as this is what the player is about (input is handled by your terminal+shell at the time of recording anyway) and its handling of escape sequences is fully compatible with most modern terminal emulators like xterm, Gnome Terminal, iTerm, mosh etc.

You can see the player in action on

You can also host the player and the recordings yourself.

aviManager helps you manage your (large) movie (DVD, DivX) collection. It ships with an intelligent voting system for many users, and attempts to find the best movie to watch. There is also a nice IMdb grabber for fast movie adding.

'camE' is a Webcam grabber for video4linux devices. It is based on the xawtv webcam app, but extended to use imlib2 for applying antialised, blended truetype fonts to the image before upload. A large number of new options have been added including scp support (in addition to ftp), image archiving, and much more. It runs as a daemon and needs no X connection to operate.

Camserv is an extremely modular program for streaming video from your GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and BSDi machine to Web clients. Filters can be added for text on the displayed window and for anything else one wants to add. It's also very portable because of the modularity of the camera plugin modules, and includes a relay agent which allows the stream to be run more easily on low-bandwidth connections, masqueraded machines, and less-powerful machines. The relay agent can be connected to another relay agent for endless mirroring and paths.

Camsource is a modularized and multithreaded daemon for grabbing image frames from a video4linux device. It uses a simple yet powerful plugin system, which allows it to use the same grabbed images for multiple purposes at the same time. It features image filter plugins, which can be daisychained in the XML config file to modify the image before passing them to other plugins. Included plugins provide compatibility with camserv (multipart jpeg streams) and webcam_server, a local snapshot file writing module, and an FTP upload module, as well as basic image filtering (resizing, flipping, and rotating).

Christine lets you play your audio and video files in the same application. In a very very easy way. As christine is inteded to be small, and cute we currently had no support for internet radio station, but we will in the future.

clive is a video extraction tool for user-uploaded video hosts such as Youtube, Google Video, Dailymotion, Guba and Metacafe. It can be chained with 3rd party tools for subsequent video re-encoding and playing and playing.

Drip is a DVD to divx conversion frontend and backend application set. The frontend is GNOME based, and the backend encoding engine is a textmode only tool. Using the GUI just makes it all easier, and adds some logic, like automatic filenaming and subpicture detection. No user interaction is needed during runtime.

'exrtools' is a set of simple utilities for manipulating with high dynamic range images in OpenEXR format, a high dynamic-range (HDR) image file format developed by Industrial Light & Magic for use in computer imaging applications. The package currently includes the following tools: exrblur, exrchr, exricamtm, exrnlm, exrnormalize, exrpptm, exrstats, exrtopng, jpegtoexr, pngtoexr, ppmtoexr 'exrtools' was developed to help experiment with batch processing of HDR images for tone mapping. Each application is small and reasonably self-contained so that the source code may be of most value to others. It currently only works with RGBA OpenEXR files, and the code assumes that the EXR files and PNG files all use sRGB primaries and gamma function. Fixing this is not very difficult, and the code to fix allows for some interesting possibilities.
