Video to ASCII Art



For those who can only afford a terminal because graphics cards are too expensive but still need to get on video calls and watch movies.

Command line options:
-f: Path to a video file
-w: The width of the output to be printed in the terminal (OPTIONAL)

Example usage: python ascii-art.py -f /path/to/video.mp4
Example usage: python ascii-art.py -f /path/to/video.mp4 -w 50
