What is it? An audio/video player that uses the ZXpand+ with fw 1.12 or later to stream a 128x94 pixel b/w video file @25fps and AY audio @50 updates per second. The .p and .bin files should be placed on an empty FAT16 formatted SD-card, FAT32 did not work for me.
I haven't had a chance to test it, but it's definitely _most_ interesting.

Can You describe the process of creating the ZX81-friendly BIN video-file, possibly adding a list of required software?

Kind regards.

I'll try to get time to describe the process during Christmas break. Lots of handheld processing that could be automated.
