VideoteXt v.0.6


VideoteXt is a videotext/teletext-decoder for PCs running Linux/x86 (of course, it also runs with other Unices, but there are currently no drivers for videotext-cards on these systems). It consists of a device-driver, an interactice frontend using the X-Window-System and the XView-toolkit and a commandline-oriented frontend intended mainly for non-interactive usage.The XView-version is TOP-text-capable and is able to receive all single pages of a station in advance in a few minutes, so you don't have to wait when you access these pages. Frequently used pages can be put into a hotlist, which will be sought autmatically whenever you switch to a new station. Of course, you can save and load videotext-pages; exporting them in GIF-, PPM-, PNG-, ASCII- and PostScript-format is also possible.The commandline-version also offers TOP-text support and can output the received pages in different ASCII- and binarThe device-driver is a loadable kernel module for Linux.y-formats suitable for post-processing (with AWK-scripts e.g.).The device-driver is a module for Linux kernel. A list of supported hardware interfaces is available.I'm always interested in information about other interfaces -- probably I can add support for them to my driver. However, if I can't get enough information about the hardware, support for them is not very likely. For example, this is the case with all cards using the SAA5284 from Philips, like all newer newer Hauppauge WinTV/PCI cards. Please complain to Hauppauge if you don't like this policy.If you'd like to buy a new videotext interface, here's a list of vendors of supported videotext interfaces (most of them are in Germany, because that's where I once lived -- if you know of other ones, please tell me).You can also use VideoteXt without a videotext-interface, e.g. as an external viewer for web browsers if you'd like to build a web-based videotext server. If you want to have a look at VideoteXt before buying an interface, you can do so by reading the example pages included in the VideoteXt package from disk.
