This cool hack takes videos from YouTube, converts each frame to ASCII text, then plays them back in all their alphanumeric glory.

Lynx Playing YouTube Video

Warren Harding (Linux geek, not the 29th President) put together a script which uses the text-based Lynx web browser along with Mplayer to to render the video.

Unless you’re a real Linux geek, you’ll need to jump to about 4 minutes into the video clip to get to the good stuff.
