Robert and Reynaldo are working on a multimedia investigation utility called Tarantula. The goal, as I understand it, is to be able to analyze frames from a video stream to determine more about their properties, e.g., RGB15 vs. RGB16, upside-down orientation, and other parameters. Sounds like the start of something useful.
The project made me realize that I would like a simple tool that could load a file and allow me to treat it as various different types of PCM. Actually, I can’t believe that there aren’t already a number of waveform editors out there, even for Linux, that can probably do just that. It might make some of my multimedia investigations simpler.
