FFmpeg is the leading multimedia framework, able to decode, encode, transcode, mux, demux, stream, filter and play pretty much anything that humans and machines have created. It supports the most obscure ancient formats up to the cutting edge.

This package contains:

  • ffmpeg: a command line tool to convert multimedia files between formats
  • ffplay: a simple media player based on SDL and the FFmpeg libraries
  • ffprobe: a simple multimedia stream analyzer
  • qt-faststart: a utility to rearrange Quicktime files

GStreamer is a streaming media framework, based on graphs of filters which operate on media data. Applications using this library can do anything from real-time sound processing to playing videos, and just about anything else media-related. Its plugin-based architecture means that new data types or processing capabilities can be added simply by installing new plug-ins.

This package contains plugins from the "ugly" set, a set of good-quality plug-ins that might pose distribution problems.

Create stop-motion animations with images grabbed from a video device, or from image files, or from still images extracted from video. Stopmotion has a set of tools which helps you keep the movements smooth and precise, such as ghosting the last image on a live view of the next image to be acquired.

Kino allows you to record, create, edit, and play movies recorded with DV camcorders. This program uses many keyboard commands for fast navigating and editing inside the movie.

The kino-timfx, kino-dvtitler and kinoplus sets of plugins, formerly distributed as separate packages, are now provided with Kino.

Its plugin-based architecture means that new data types or processing capabilities can be added simply by installing new plug-ins.

PiTiVi allows users to easily edit audio/video projects based on the GStreamer framework. PiTIVi provides several ways of creating and modifying a timeline. Ranging from a simple synopsis view (a-la iMovie) to the full-blown editing view (aka Complex View) which puts you in complete control of your editing.

This is an X11 based GUI for the libxine video player library. It provides xine, a skin based media player that can play all the audio/video formats that libxine supports. Currently, this includes MPEG1/2, some AVI and Quicktime files, some network streaming methods and disc based media (VCD, SVCD, DVD). A more complete list can be found on http://xinehq.de/index.php/features/.

Most DVDs on the market today are play-protected by the Content Scrambling System (CSS). Xine does not provide any code to descramble those DVDs, because of legal uncertainties. Have a look at /usr/share/doc/xine-ui/README.Debian for more information!

libdvdcss is a cross-platform library for transparent DVD device access with on-the-fly CSS decryption. It currently runs under Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, BSD/OS, Solaris, BeOS, Win95/Win98, Win2k/WinXP, MacOS X, HP-UX, QNX, and OS/2. It is used by libdvdread and most DVD players such as VLC because of its portability and because, unlike similar libraries, it does not require your DVD drive to be region locked.

This package contains the shared library.
