Covert video to ASCII
There's this option in VLC to view videos in ASCII format, but when I view them it's too difficult to make out what's going on.
In the example provided by this guy (especially at the end)-
the effect is better, there are far more lines making it a lot easier to understand.... (there are also instructions to get the ASCII effect)
Anyone know how I might achieve something close to this with my own videos?
Should I just do something in far higher quality? If I shrink the screen way down it's better, could I make a large video and shrink it to normal size?
Maybe this should be in tech help? Seems to be mostly hardware over there...

Can you repost the link?All times I have enjoyed greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those that loved me, and alone.

Well, I can get more lines with an older version of VLC but no colour... might have to do a bit of experimenting :) Oh wait, that should be :(

Just discovered ASCIImeo, it's quite nice-
Now I just need something like this to convert my own videos..
Maybe I could just upload stuff to vimeo and screencapture them... seems a bit convoluted
