Linux offers quite a few multimedia programs, including players, editors, and other tools. Some are commercial quality and others are best suited for developers, but most are worth a look either way. Here are some examples that I've found useful.




Multimedia: Watching YouTube with Minitube

Multimedia: LiVES

LiVES is a fairly good video editor for Linux. It seems to work well, but it's primarily useful for short video clips because, to achieve good results, it decodes videos completely to frames. This requires significant time and disk space.

Multimedia: Avidemux

Avidemux is a video editor, like LiVES but less reliable than the latter program. As a general rule, you'd use LiVES instead, but Avidemux is useful in some cases. For example, although there are many videos that Avidemux can't handle, it's faster for videos that it can handle.

For more information on Internet radio (both broadcasts and podcasts), see my article at this link.

Multimedia: GIF animations

These are two GIF animations that I created using my distro. If you have a slow Internet connection, allow 10 to 20 seconds for the animations to start.

For the first (left) animation, I used the GIMP and Perl. For the second (right) animation, I used POV-Ray and Perl. For more information, click here.
