Tools for video recording, playback, simple editing and MPEG compression

The 'mjpeg' programs are tools that can record and playback videos and do simple cut-and-paste editing and MPEG compression of audio and video. The recorded videos can be converted to MPEG streams. Playing back MPEG streams works with almost every player and every OS; you can also produce special forms of MPEG streams like VCD (Video CD) and SVCD for hardware playback. The tools can be used used to edit, playback and compress motion JPEG (MJPEG) AVI's captured using the xawtv package or MJPEG streams created and edited with broadcast 2000. MPEG-2 streams can be transcoded to MPEG-2/MPEG-1 through patches to the output drivers for the mpeg2dec and ac3dec tools.
