60 Open Source Replacements for Audio/Video Tools

Most computer users are spending much more time these days viewing and creating multimedia content. According to comScore, 85.6 percent of online Americans (178 million people) watched video online in June 2011, and they spent an average of 16.8 hours each watching those videos during the month. In addition, Nielsen reports that the number of people watching video on their smartphones and tablets has increased 41 percent since last year.

But it isn’t just video viewing that’s growing—more people are also using their PCs and mobile devices to listen to music. Earlier this year, Steve Jobs announced that 200 million people have iTunes accounts.

In keeping with this trend, the open source community has created dozens of projects to help you create, find, edit, organize and manage your audio and video files. Here are 60 of the best open source tools that can replace commercial audio/video software.

As always, if we’ve missed some that you think should be on the list, feel free to add them to the comments section below.
