    I wonder what would happen if you opened up a video file in a hex editor and deleted random parts?


    An mp4. I opened it up with TextEdit, then used Find/Replace to replace all of a certain character ( "&", I think) with "F." Then I opened it up in VLC and captured the result.

    another wmv:

    Wow! The hex edit experiment turned out much better than I thought it would. Now the next step would be to make a video player (maybe with live video capabilities too) that can make these changes in real time with some knobs and maybe sliders. Maybe it's a Processing project. Or maybe a screen saver that reads from a folder of user selected video clips.

    The Carmageddon data-bend is interesting too and may be a good incentive for picking up outdated games when I'm at thrift stores.

    I think it would be really cool to make this glitch video stuff in really high resolution like the new quicktime H.264 and maybe on dvd and hd-dvd.
