Tiny Arcade & Pocket Arcade / Re: Got "Video Player" working!

Does it need a .bin file? Just the .tsv? What is the converter you used?

You'll need the "Video Player" app they have installed on your SD Card. So that's the "Video Player" directory with the .BIN file and associated .TSV file. Then for whatever .TSV files you want to view, they have to be in the root directory of the SD Card (I was putting them in the "Video Player" directory and it wasn't working).

The TSV converter they have can be found here:

With the release of the TSV converter, I was finally able to figure out how to get "Video Player" to work.

You say watch any movies with sound but how?  All I see is info on images and animated gifs.  And all the info on that page seems like another language to me.  The link for PIL(OS X) is broken.  Whatever that is.  I downloaded the file and when viewing it on the tiny arcade it looks like there are 10 of them tiling across the screen.  How do I play my own little 17 sec video I want to see on it.  I even made the video 96x64 to fit the screen.  That didn't work.  I made a animated gif version of it the same size that doesn't work either.  I managed to find mp4 to ts converter online but that just created station the screen.  Been at this for 5 hours.  HELP!

Unfortunately the tutorials you see are strictly converting animated gifs over to a TSV file that also needs a proper .BIN file for the video player. They're still working on this apparently (there's a link to a python script in this thread above).

We'll likely have to wait until the Memento Kickstarter finishes ( since they will have an online converter using the same TinyDuino screen.

Please do post it when you can! Not afraid of Linux dependencies, I'd like to see how some video looks on it.


Have you had any luck with it? I run a Mac and I got stuck at some of the dependencies trying to run it (namely not finding "gi").

Tiny Arcade & Pocket Arcade / TinyScreen MP4 Converter ?

Howdy! Just got my kit this week and it's fantastic. Very cool stuff. I remember in the KS they talked about a converter for MP4s to the TSV filetype. Outside of a tutorial on getting animated gifs or pngs over to the format, is there an actual binary I can access to do the conversion?

From the KS Campaign: "Watch videos and movies on your Tiny Arcade.  Convert any MP4 movie using a free utility to the TinyScreen format, put them on a microSD card, plug in and watch your videos (with sound!)."

Would love to have some old arcade screen cap videos cycling through like the attract mode for Pac-Man or TMNT. Thanks!
