Hi sulekha, There aren't any projects for sound/video wrappers that I'm aware of. The sound community is generally well supported by ALSA and OSS. The newer video drivers these days are usually Intel, ATI, or Nvidia, and supported by the vendors as well as Xorg. The older video drivers are well supported also.

Good luck. ;-)
