Beverly Hills Cop trailer converted for Amstrad CPC with M4 board, with music by David Whittaker adapted for CHIPNSFX by CNGSOFT (thanks again for permission). A very simple player on early-stage. Some improvements coming.

OMG.
If that's true that means we could bring FMV games to Amstrad CPC like Laserdic arcade based games (were using Z80) or even Mega CD stuff like Night Trap  :laugh:
How does this demo work ? Does it stream through Wifi or read the FMV through mass storage hooked to M4 ?

It is 16 colours mode 0 with dithering. Probably with palette update for each frame.

The clip was converted to mode 0 and played on real CPC, I'm using my own program - CPiC which I wrote a years ago to convert images for Symbos format.
The whole project is a 'side effect' - I'm working on a puzzle game
(which will be finished very soon, finally) - and in tests time on a real machine, I found how fast is M4 SD card reader.
Hope to (re)start my website soon, where updates will come.

Now, I'm thinking of using such videos in combination with PlayCity and LS3 (PCM sample mode f.e).  :o
