SDL_bgrab is an SDL conversion of the libbgrab framegrabber library. It uses a separate thread to grab images into a framebuffer independent of an external "game loop" to make it easy to integrate live video into other applications. Images are grabbed at 32bit RGBx resolutions, and several deinterlace algorithms are available to improve image quality.
SCRAP (Security Camera Recording APplication) is a security camera recording application that is capable of working with any video4linux compatible device. It can grab frames from multiple inputs on a single device or from multiple capture boards at the same time. It has a very reliable motion detection system that records only when movement is detected, ignoring light changes. Videos are recorded using XviD's MPEG-4 codec. A recording archive management system is included.
