AnoTag – Akiba-kei VJ Software

AnoTag is a VJ application for Mac. It is originally developed for enhancing VJ style of Akiba-kei Otaku. Akiba-kei VJs prefer to play relevant videos in response to meaning/information/motion in current playing video or music. AnoTag is easy to play videos/images in the same context by choosing a tag. Underscore separated words in a filename are recognised as “tags” of the video by AnoTag.
