The.Matrix-ASCII is the original Matrix movie
encoded in text. The finished product
is an MPEG-2 file 7989979136 bytes in size, too large to fit on a DVD5. I
re-encoded the ASCII
movie to fit on a standard DVDR. The two samples are from the larger file
and are higher quality. The DVDR is available through BitTorrent. If you wish to download the
final movie or either of the samples using BitTorrent with Java installed, I suggest Azureus: otherwise TheSHADOW's BitTorrent Client should
work well. You will need a media player that can play MPEG-2 videos to
watch either sample and a DVD player to watch the movie.
Below the downloads is a text box that allows you to see any frame of the
movie and its ASCII equivalent. Just click in the text box and hit enter.
The images are stored on an external drive and may or may not be
Because I love this movie.
This was the first thing I thought of when I first saw AA-Lib with MPlayer. I have to admit I did not
think of it when I saw ttyquake. After I watched
The Matrix with MPlayer on a Linux console I wanted it to be green and I
wanted to be able to watch it anywhere.

you definitely wouldn't want to watch a movie in ASCII if it's your first
viewing (sometimes the picture is a bit hard to make out), but it's
definitely a cool toy. if you have super nerdy friends, put it on in the
background of your party and watch the geeks flock...

This is absolutley INCREDIBLE!!! EASILY one of the coolest things I've
EVER seen! Where'd you get the notion to do something like this!?!?!?!
I've got so many questions and damn I'm still in AWE. But I had to take a
moment and let you know that your work is HIGHLY appreciated.
