Text Movie Player demonstration using Star Wars
This is a demonstration of an improved player for Simon Jansen's ASCIImations.
To start the movie playing, click on the play button.
This player has the following improvements on
the original player:
- It has control buttons.
- It supports both forward and reverse play.
- It takes the movie title and filename from parameters,
rather than hardwiring them into the player. The same player can
thus be used for different movies.
I am still working on eliminating the following bugs if I can find a way:
- The player does not redraw the current frame if the window is obscured.
- The play control buttons only take effect after the current frame has
finished being displayed.
