Playing Video on the Handheld Pokitto Game Device @Pokitto #Gaming
POKITTO is a do-it-yourself gaming gadget you assemble and program yourself. With Pokitto, you can learn programming & building electronics in a fun way.
spinalcode.co.uk, they recently managed to get full screen video streaming on the Pokitto!
They extracted the individual frames from a movie file using
ffmpeg. A windows batch file first evaluates the video and creates a 256 colour table, this is part of the secret. Only 256 colours are used for the whole video which helps get it playing on the device.
To see the whole process, read the whole blog post.
