Pushing the platform to its limits with video -> teletext encoding and soundwave simulation on interrupt. All by one coder with a passion for this old platform.

Rulez! Could you make a youtube video of it?

I've made a video grab from a real machine now. Hope that makes it easier for people to watch.

Dash (the musician) tells me the track is an early version of http://www.skipthebudgie.org/audio/by/title/bitter_laughter by the way. If you like it, you can find other stuff he's written on his site!

Also on the youtubes:


Please watch this in preference to the video posted above: there's limited bandwidth on that server.

Piggy because i'd like to see some realtime fx as well as the (admittedly very cool) video player.

is this the same player used in the bp2009 wolverine compo?

Yeah, though with some tweaks to the conversion tools (not used at runtime admittedly), and actually tested on hardware (the emulator can squeeze through a few more bps than a GoMMC, and I didn't have h/w at Breakpoint). The Wolverine video and audio both came out pretty crappy too IMO.

Excellent demo for the beeb.

Now what about a RISC OS demo now that its been ported to the Beagle Board?

the streaming is cool tech, the demo is boring

Does anyone know if there is a image->mode7 teletext converter that can save info a teletext format file, we are experimenting with teletext over amateur radio and have a client built into a packet terminal, and I have a bunch of artwork I’d like to convert without having to redo everything in a line editor. 😎

The one used for this prod is there in the source code at github, https://github.com/crtc-demos/bbc-teletext-video-player/tree/master/teletext (the "teletext.c" file IIRC).

I believe Kieran Connell took that code and rewrote/significantly improved it at https://github.com/kieranhj/image2mode7.
