Hasciicam makes it possible to have live ASCII video on the Web. It captures video from a TV card and renders it into ASCII, formatting the output into an HTML page with a refresh tag or in a live ASCII window or in a simple text file as well, giving anyone that has a bttv card, a Linux box, and a cheap modem line the ability to show a live asciivideo feed that can be browsable without any need for a plugin, Java, etc.
MuSE is a user-friendly tool for network audio streaming, making life easier for independent free speech radio stations. It can play, mix, encode, and stream sound from and to the Internet in both MP3 and Ogg/Vorbis format to be listened by the majority of audio players. It can simultaneously mix up to 6 encoded audio channels plus a sound card input signal, sending the result to an Icecast/Shoutcast server. It offers GTK2, ncurses, and Carbon (OSX) interfaces for real-time operation and a full set of command line options.
Dyne:bolic GNU/Linux is a live bootable operating system equipped with a wide range of multimedia applications: editors and streamers of audio and video, 3D modelers, image processors, P2P file-sharing tools, Web browsers, an office suite, and full encryption of storage and communication. Dyne:bolic is optimized to run on old computers, runs the Linux-Libre kernel, and omits all non-free software. It can be well used without a network connection, and it comes with all the tools and libraries needed to customize the OS.
IvySync provides synced playback of multiple videos on multiple screens. In the video art field, there are many artworks which require synchronized and parallel playback of audio/video materials. This software provides such functionality for IvyTV supported hardware decoders, with sync precision to the frame, a user friendly configuration interface, network sync of multiple machines, time scheduling of different playlists, and the ability to be controlled remotely via XMLRPC.
As a plugin API, Frei0r's main emphasis is on simplicity, to round up the most common video effects into simple filters, sources, and mixers that can be controlled by parameters. Frei0r plugins can be shared by many host applications, avoiding duplicate efforts by different projects. Frei0r is not meant as a competing standard to more ambitious efforts trying to satisfy the needs of many different applications and more complex effects, as it doesn't provides things like an extensive parameter mechanism or event handling.
AutOrg aims to be a text editor, personal organizer, local wiki, secure agenda, and everything in between. For the user interface, it gets its inspiration from text-based minimalism, still providing advanced features for publishing, encrypting, and sharing information. It uses Emacs Org-mode and other extensions, and its main binary distribution runs on a Mac OS X desktop.
HDSync provides synchronous playback of different HD videos on multiple screens. For video art, video wall, and dome installations, it provides realtime synchronized playback of audio and video, allowing consumer-grade HD decoders to synchronize playback using multiple devices connected via the local network.
Tomb is a system to make strong encryption easy for everyday use. A tomb is like a locked folder that can be safely transported and hidden in a filesystem. Its keys can be kept separate; for example, you can keep the tomb on your computer and its key on a USB stick. Tomb is written in code that is easy to review and links shared components: it consists of a ZShell script and desktop integration apps; it uses standard GNU tools and the cryptographic API of the Linux kernel (dm-crypt) via cryptsetup.
Freecoin is a versatile version of the bitcoin framework, supporting language bindings and multiple currencies. It aims to share code with the original bitcoin implementation, while cleaning up its architecture. Freecoin strips down the backend bitcoin code to its essentials, while moving external tasks to language bindings (primarily Python). It also adds the possibility to customize the genesis block, allowing the creation of new currencies.
TorTV is a build of the Tor Project maintained to run on TV devices and set-top boxes so that anyone with such a household appliance can contribute to strengthen the Tor network. TorTV does not reimplement nor modify the Tor source code in any way; it provides binary builds for embedded targets and scripted bundles to facilitate their installation. So far, it targets WDTV devices running WDLXTV, but aims to grow to support more hardware in future.
ZShaolin installs a powerful terminal on your Android device, without requiring root. It comes with applications to edit text, images, audio, and video using shell scripts and programs like FFMpeg, ImageMagick, Sox, Oggz, Lua, awk, sed, vim, emacs, git, SSH, and rsync. A zsh command line environment comes pre-configured with colors, smart completion, error correction, and all man pages, making ZShaolin also suitable for those who would like to learn shell scripting and Unix system administration via a remote session.
Jaro Mail is an integrated suite of interoperable tools for GNU/Linux and Apple/OS X to manage email communication in a private way, without relying on online services (in fact, encouraging users to store email locally). It mainly features a system for mailinglist filtering, address-book integrated whitelisting, strong encryption and anonymous remailing, long-term email storage and archiving with functions for fast search and usage statistics. To accomplish all that, it makes use of solid Unix tools like Mutt, Fetchmail, Mairix, Msmtp, GnuPG, Abook, ELinks, and Mixmaster.
Dowse eases the configuration of network routing for a local area network, starting from the setup of ARP-level static entries of known peers, IP-level firewall, DHCP configuration, and local DNS cache, up to an application layer transparent proxy and optional gateways to anonymous networks such as Tor and I2P. It consists of a minimalistic script which can run on any GNU/Linux box and which, from a central configuration point, controls Ebtables, Iptables, and all the daemons needed for such operations: DnsMasq, Squid2, and Privoxy. It comes with a module system for contributed add-ons like DNSCrypt-proxy and HTTPS-everywhere.
PASAP runs in the background, checking whether a stream exists, and, if it does, plays it. It was originally written to play back audio provided by MPD in remotely networked locations, but it also allows consumer-grade HD decoders (WDTV) to automatically play back audio/video streams from an HTTP address.
WebNomad is a set of shell scripts that generate Web sites and image galleries fit for desktop as well mobile and tablet browsing. It can be operated on any device running ZShell. Its themes are based on Bootstrap CSS. Pages can be written in Markdown syntax interlaced with HTML. JQuery and BlueImp are used to make slideshows using all files found in a directory.
