How did i do this:

  • I generate with linearize-hashes.py the blockhashes
  • then i create qrcodes.. a lot of them..
    c=0; for i in `cat hashlist.txt`; do let c=$c+1; echo $c; echo $i | qrencode -d 256 -o ascii/`printf hash”%08d\n” ${c}`.png; done
  • then i use ffmpeg to create the video:
    ffmpeg -framerate 25 -i hash%08d.png -c:v libx264  out.mp4
    and convert to webm
    ffmpeg -i out1.mp4 -vcodec libvpx -acodec libvorbis output1.webm
