This is a demonstration of version 2 of my digital video player for
the Tandy Color Computer 3. Version 1 just never performed as well as
I liked, so I revised it in preparation for this year's CoCoFEST! on
May 21-22 2011 in Elgin, IL. See http://www.glensideccc.com/ for
event details -- I'll be there with a live demonstration for those
interested in seeing it in person. I hope you will be as pleased with
the revised performance as I am!

The video playback shown is 128x192 in 16-colors. The video is updated
60 times per second, although obviously not every update covers an
entire frame. The audio playback is at 11040HZ. Audio samples are
8-bits each, although the stock CoCo3 audio DAC is only 6-bits. Each
minute of video requires roughly 2-2.5MB of storage.
