Veejay is a video tracker/editing tool and visual instrument for GNU/Linux, suitable for live performances and editing environments, that emphasises direct (user) interaction. Users can navigate through video samples, define various types of looping, increase and decrease playback speed, and navigate through the effect chain to apply a chain of effects using the keyboard while the interface keeps track of what you are doing. 'veejay' supports multiple capture/tv cards (video4linux devices), vloopback and yuv4mpeg, mixing of multiple cards to a single output, and simple video editing on a DV or MJPEG file (you can save an edit decision list which can be processed by the mjpegtools).
