Watch video as text.







To view videos as text try: (You may have to install the caca-utilities)
$ mplayer -vo caca videoname.ext


A 1997 Linux Terminal Tech Demo (ASCII Code)

You can get it by typing this in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install bb






You can also watch the Starwars video with a real telnet connection.

$  telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl

You can also save the telnet session with ttyrec (you may need to install ttyrec or compile from source at http://sourceforge.net/projects/ttyrec/ , if your distro does not have it included) for later playback.

To record
$ ttyrec starwars
$ telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl
 <ctrl>d

To playback.
$ ttyplay starwars.
