Yes, the OSSC is the best scan converter less than £300 and works a treat with the QL.
I think I posted about it here last year.

Great! Wasn't sure it would help, have never used the W volume myself - Just browsed through the docs some time ago. Tobias The only downside is that compression is achieved by saving only red or green. So when you load the image you have to recolor it to get white pixels - and you get red or green...

The new (high density) felt needs to be 4mm long, 2mm wide and no more than 1.5mm high otherwise it'll put too much pressure on the tape.

Today I booted my Sinclair QL for the 1st time. The SuperGoldCard is a fantastic piece of hardware, but it suffers from not being available, and not solving the video issue. Recently I had a private discussion again about an UltraGoldCard for the QL case, mainly to provide an easy upgrade for retur...
Now off to bed. Enjoy, Marcel That's absolutely amazing! What sort of algorithm are you using for that? By the way those speckles in the images are probably from diffusion dithering on too small an image, I got that once and had to swap to a different dithering algorithm for the small version of th...
OK, I've given up on the development of this, but I've packaged up everything so if anyone else would like to continue playing with this stuff they can. You can download the gzipped tar file here: http://www.lingula.org.uk/~steve/share/QL-m4video-codec.tar.gz I've written some very basic documentati...
Here's a larger (and better rendered) version of test_m4v: http://www.lingula.org.uk/~steve/share/test_m4v I could run the first version (named "testm4v.img") with QemuLator, but I can't open this new one. I tried also to rename it as "test_m4v.img" but I get a "not a QDOS ...
OK, I think I can probably say that a "Bad Apple" demo is impossible on a stock QL with memory and disk expansion, the memory sub-system is just too slow. Even after halving the resolution (reducing the number of pixels by 3/4trs), doing a little more optimisation in the decoder and simpli...
