The mjpeg programs are a set of tools that can do recording of videos and
playback, simple cut-and-paste editing and the MPEG compression of audio and
video under Linux.

Recording is supported for the Zoran based cards like the Buz (Iomega), DC10
(MIRO, Pinnacle), Matrox Marvel cards and the LML33 (Linux Media Labs). See
related pages to the right to find the right driver for your card.
The recorded videos can be converted to MPEG streams. The software playback of
MPEG streams works with almost every player and every OS.
You can produce special forms of MPEG streams like VCD (Video CD) and SVCD for
hardware playback.

A key design objective of the tools is interoperability with other video tools:
The tools can be used used to edit, playback and compress motion JPEG (MJPEG)
AVI's captured using the xawtv package.

The tools can be used to edit playback and compress MJPEG streams created and
editted with broadcast 2000. N.b. the current mpeg2movie high bit-rate MPEG
encoder is in large part derived from an obsolescent snapshot of the mjpegtools
MPEG encoder.

Transcoding of MPEG-2 streams to MPEG-2/MPEG-1 is supported through patches to
the output drivers for mpeg2dec and ac3dec tools from the Linux Video and DVD

dv2jpg converts a DV codec-encoded AVI stream (from dvgrab, for example) to an
mjpeg-encoded AVI stream that can be processed by the mjpeg tools package. The
mjpeg AVI can be converted to mpeg video/audio and burned onto a VCD later.

Videos created with Nupplevideo from bttv based cards can also be encoded with
the tools. More info at: Roman's NuppelVideo Homepage.

MPEG output is compatible with Microsoft Media player and Real player.

The MJPEG-Howto, written by Bernhard Praschinger contains a brief introduction
to all the MJPEG-tools. If you don't know where to start, please start by
reading this document, it gives an overview of about everything the tools can

Notes from submitter:

All binaries and docs except those for the "lavtools", that I haven't managed to
compile (yet), should be included in the archive. If there is anything important
missing then contact me.

I have only tested the mplex binary, rest are mostly untested but I don't see
why they should not work...
