    My 1st movie in Amiga Ham

    Hi,
    i read about Amiga Ham videos, and i wanted to try it.
    So i grab a video from my vacations in Madeira Island and i convert it to Amiga Ham Video,
    the result was good.
    I am able to play it in my real Amiga 1200 with 2+8 Mb ram. the quality is not bad, i was very impressive with the results.
    I am using the AVI4HV to convert from AVI, and then the Hamp.run to run it in real Amiga
    the player is fine for CLI/Shell, but it does not have a way to stop the video...
    any one has other software for it?

    Check it out, my real A1200 playing the movie.
    It was filmed in Madeira Island it is a travel down hill on basket cars.

    Nice work! Quality looks good to be in HAM-mode.

    it is, the recording from mobile dont show the imperfections.
    there are some color problems, looks like some lines in vertical have the wrong color. But overal is very good.

    what was a suprise is that it dont take time to load the movie, after the command line, it dont take any time to load. You hit enter and it's on screen.
    It try with a 15 minute movie, and it all worked fine. I think if you put a full movie it will work as well.

    That is surprising. I'm sure non-Amiga users will be impressed if you show it to them. Have you searched Aminet for different utilities to try out?

    Very nice. I've never ried doing HAM video and in fact never realised you could. Do you know what the framerate is running at? Looks pretty smooth from your video.

    The colour issues you mentioned are to be expected as HAM does use a special method of displaying colours based on the colours next to them, so has a few limitations.

    BTW, wanted to ask what model of monitor you are using? Or is it one of the Samsung TV Monitors? What input are you using for it? composite, scart or a flicker fixer?

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    i didnt remove the original frame rate from the Avi source. i just resize to 320x216 (maximum you can have) and reduce the color depth.
    the sound must be reduce too to 8 bit.
    The TV is a normal LCD from Sansung (i dont know the model, i can tell you when i got home), and the Amiga is a A1200 with 8MB ram expansion only. I have in this one ClassicWB and it's connected to the TV with Scart cable.

    but from what i read, you can play this videos on a A500 with only 1mb ram....!!!

    Yes it's very smooth, i was shocked with it of course it's not a DVD, far away from it, but for a 1992 machine is very very good, and if it works well on a A500, it is even more impressive!!!

    Regarding the TV, if i choose PAL in Workbench the image tremble a bit verticaly, but with NTSC it's fine... why?? Portugal is PAL system

    It takes less then half a second to start playing since you hit enter...

    That is definitely very impressive. That video dimension is identical to VCD, so is more amazing when you consider that and what has been achieved to play it on an A500. Think back to the 1993 and the CD32 needed a FMV module to play VCD!

    I had forgotten about this. I was going to test this out myself but forgot. Really must give it a go.
