[ (h)ascii for the masses! ]
version 1.1.1
Hasciicam makes it possible to have live ascii video on the web. It
captures video from a tv card and renders it into ascii, formatting
the output into an html page with a refresh tag or in a live ascii
window or in a simple text file as well, giving the possiblity to
anybody that has a bttv card. a linux box and a cheap modem line to
show a live asciivideo feed that can be browsable without any need for
plugin, java etc.
