Applications

VLC

Multimedia player and streamer

VLC is the VideoLAN project's media player. It plays MPEG, MPEG2, MPEG4, DivX, MOV, WMV, QuickTime, mp3, Ogg/Vorbis files, DVDs, VCDs, and multimedia streams from various network sources.
VLC can also be used as a streaming server that duplicates the stream it reads and multicasts them through the network to other clients, or serves them through HTTP.
VLC has support for on-the-fly transcoding of audio and video formats, either for broadcasting purposes or for movie format transformations. Support for most output methods is provided by this package, but features can be added by installing additional audio plugins (vlc-plugin-esd, vlc-plugin-sdl, vlc-plugin-arts) or video plugins (vlc-plugin-sdl, vlc-plugin-ggi, vlc-plugin-glide, vlc-plugin-svgalib). There is also a web browser plugin in the mozilla-plugin-vlc package.

Swfdec flash player

Tools to play SWF files (Macromedia Flash) on GNOME

This package contains programs to integrate Flash functionality into the GNOME desktop. It's main application is swfdec-player, a stand-alone viewer for Flash files. It also contains swfdec-thumbnailer, a program that provides screenshots for files to display in the Nautilus file manager.

Mplayer

Movie player for Unix-like systems

MPlayer plays most MPEG, VOB, AVI, Ogg/OGM, VIVO, ASF/WMA/WMV, QT/MOV/MP4, FLI, RM, NuppelVideo, yuv4mpeg, FILM, RoQ, PVA files, supported by many native, XAnim, RealPlayer, and Win32 DLL codecs. It can also play VideoCD, SVCD, DVD, 3ivx, RealMedia, and DivX movies.
Another big feature of MPlayer is the wide range of supported output drivers. It works with X11, Xv, DGA, OpenGL, SVGAlib, fbdev, DirectFB, but also SDL (plus all its drivers) and some low level card-specific drivers (for Matrox, 3Dfx and Radeon, Mach64 and Permedia3). Most of them support software or hardware scaling, therefore allowing fullscreen display. MPlayer is also able to use some hardware MPEG decoder boards, such as the DVB and DXR3/Hollywood+.
Not all of the upstream code is distributed in the source tarball. See the README.Debian and copyright files for details.

Zapping

Television viewer for the GNOME environment

It is based on plugins. This will make it easy to add functionality to the program, without making it hard to maintain, such as saving video as AVI/MPEG, viewing mirrored TV (scanning from right to left) or whatever you can imagine (and program).
