Main goal of this project is to ease usage of legacy, not JACK-ified apps, in a JACK MIDI enabled system. a2jmidid is a daemon that implements automatic bridging. For every ALSA sequencer port you get one JACK MIDI port. If ALSA sequencer port is both one input and one output, you get two JACK MIDI ports, one input and one output.

libavc1394 is a programming interface for the 1394 Trade Association AV/C (Audio/Video Control) Digital Interface Command Set. It allows you to remote control camcorders and similar devices connected to your computer via an IEEE 1394 (aka Firewire) link.

This package provides the command line tool dvcont that acts as a simple remote control, the tool mkrfc2734 that is needed to advertise IP over IEEE 1394 (RFC 2734) capabilities with the Linux 2.4 kernel series, and the utility panelctl, a remote control for set-top boxes.
