After some time again dealing with 16 color mode AV playback on Ataris.
I spotted Pink Panther collection, and it looked as ideal for some not much HW demanding audio-video playback on our oldies.
Usually, hand drawn animated movies are at 12 fps real framerate most time, there is no many color, so just good for STE low res mode.
It plays on res 320x200 px, 12 fps, audio is 25033 Hz, mono - that's possible on STE, TT, Falcon . Actually, video works on ST too, and no audio, looks not so good (512 colors instead 4096) .
Does not need some very fast mass storage - about 700 KB/sec rate will be enough for flawless playback. This player works well at 50 and 60 Hz screen refresh rates - so PAL, NTSC, RGB, VGA .
http://atari.8bitchi...avCre/LAVP3.ZIP - 110 MB, includes 2 videos. Conversion to 16 colors is hardest part in preparation. One video is done with usual color reduction+dithering, other is done with posterize effect - and that looks best actually, since source is just not good - too noisy, some strange luminance gradient - right side of screen is always brighter than left. What made color reduction too flickering.
Will write about how to convert usual videos into format suitable for this player. How to make it looking good.
