ST hicolor video encoder & player by Blabla [web]

This is a Hicolor video player running on Atari ST/STe

Mixer & video player : Petari-Ppera
Video encoder : Cyg/BLaBla
Originally ready end of 2012
Public demonstration for Outline 2014

The video player needs a very fast drive to run smooth 
or use any Atari emulators (tested on STeem and Hatari).
Sound is only available for STe, video works on 520 ST & STe. 
Some wakeup-states issue can be expected, try to reboot, 
a debug version can be expected (I found how to fix it...)

On real hardware: 
- launch NP158DE.TTP 
- enter the video filename *.CAV 
but please follow the technical details from Petari.
Take a close look at "P158DR.TXT" to prepare your drive.

On emulator:
- launch P158DR.TTP
- enter the video filename *.CAV

Video size : 320x158 pixel at 12.5fps.
Encoder : higheSTcolor as used in my demos. Speed was crucial
, it can encode 1 min video in 1h using 1cpu (I5)

More info, details and features about the video player 
including modified hardware can be read 
at http://atari.8bitchip.info/movpst.php and in the 
P158DR.txt file.

How to make video files :
Rename higheSTcolor.doc to higheSTcolor.exe
Rename STEAV158C.doc to STEAV158C.exe

Extract sound & video (PC) :
01_extract.bat : take a closer look to the options

Encoder (PC) : 
02_encode.bat : a simple batch to call higheSTcolor encoder
Make sure the BMP files are 320x200 24 bits (188KB)
Take a look to the higheSTcolor options : "higheSTcolor.exe"
with no options will give list the flags.
It will also work for static pictures.
Try to find the hidden modes I use in demos for Hicolor FX :)

Mixer (PC) :
Launch STEAV158C.EXE
choose the 1st (1) and last frames of the extracted video
choose the exctrated/transformed WAV sound 
(make sure it is 8bits mono, 25033, etc. see Petari guide)
The result is the CAV file

Video Player (Atari ST/STE) :
P158DR.TTP on real hardware
NP158DE.TTP on emulators
