Youtube on a Commodore Pet

What a fun project – a guy decides to watch YouTube videos on his Commodore Pet. Since the system certainly doesn’t have the graphics capabilities of the average PC of today, he had to get creative – and boy did he ever. He uses Floyd-Steinberg dithering to figure out how to dither the image then matches it to the closest Commodore Pet font symbols by XOR’ing the bits with the font character to find the closest match (Hamming weight) [11:30 in the video].

One of the more fun creative solutions I’ve seen in awhile.
