CRT Border



Are you tired of watching 4:3 aspect videos with black borders down the sides? You are!
Then why not try my latset time wasting app! The CRT Border!

Simple load up your media player of choice, loadup CRT Border and watch your old videos the way they were meant to be seen!
Not sure how this will act with medial players that use full screen properly, I only tested with VLC, hitting F11 to full screen.

Hehe, nope, it isn't fully tested either 😋

Having another stab at this, only completely in python...



Need to learn how to do a reasonable CRT screen effect without washing out the colours or slowing it down too much.

Cool!
You're getting along with Python, then?

Nope, GPT 3.5 is doing most of the work.

LOL!! Ok, fair enough.
As long as you're keeping an eye on things .. .. through your crt monitor.

Switching to opengl in python, what a pain. Everything works until I try adding the video, the for some stupid reason, that sprite will always render on top, no matter what order I draw everything!

Ugh.. That's frustrating..
I mean, I can understand why that might be.. The OS taking over the drawing of the video and rendering it over the top, is most likely the culprit.

The confusing part is that it has no idea what the content is. It seems that just re-copying the texture is doing something weird.

Currently having chatgpt give me an example of every movie player in python and testing one at a time...

Getting that pretend phosphor layer right is proving to be a bit of a pain...

Adjusted the phosphor mask a little, a bit more subtle so to not effect the darkness too much, the video now starts full screen and everything is sized properly. Also added a zoom option with +,- on the num pad because even old stuff was sometimes slightly wide.

Awesome
