xine is a free multimedia player. It plays back CDs, DVDs, and VCDs. It also decodes multimedia files like AVI, MOV, WMV, and MP3 from local disk drives, and displays multimedia streamed over the Internet. It interprets many of the most common multimedia formats available--and some of the most uncommon formats, too. All those features come in a reusable library (xine-lib) which can easily be embedded in your applications.
LiVES is a simple to use yet powerful video effects, editing, conversion, and playback system aimed at the digital video artist and VJ. It runs under Linux, BSD, Mac OS X/Darwin, IRIX, and openMosix. It is frame and sample accurate, can handle almost all types of video, and is fully extendable through plugins and the included plugin builder tool. It can also be controlled remotely using OSC.
Dvbnrc is a TCP Daemon written in Perl that allows you to remotely control a Nokia Mediamaster running DVB2000 through a serial nullmodem cable. It allows you to telnet to the box, get the list of available TV/radio channels, change tha channel, show the current one, or change the text of the LCDisplay.
LikeTelevision's Dynamic Ad Casting software is an automated video insertion solution that manages content programming.

DVTS (Digital Video Transport System) sends and receives DV data using the Internet. It consists of dvsend and dvrecv - dvsend receives DV data via IEEE1394, and sends it to dvrecv using IP, while dvrecv receives DV/RTP packets, and sends DV data using an IEEE1394 interface. Using DVTS, high quality realtime video meeting can be achieved. It consumes about 8-35 Mbps of network bandwidth. Supported platforms are FreeBSD4.x, MacOSX, and Linux.
RHEED for Linux is designed to aquire data from RHEED (Reflection High Energy Electron Diffraction) images in Molecular Beam Epitaxy and for controlling an electron beam gun. It is possible to determine growth rate of a semiconductor crystal from RHEED-Oscillations, to aquire Lines Of Interest (LOIs) in realtime, and develop incident angle dependent intensity curves. The Electron Beam Gun EK35BR from Staib Instruments is supported.
