Here is the "geekmaster video transcoder" (raw2gmv):

You can use ffmpeg and raw2gmv and gzip to convert videos to .gmv.gz using these commands:

You can read video streams from the internet with ffmpeg and pipe them directly to gmplay instead of through gzip to a video file. That works well on the K4 and K5, but on a K3 (especially for x264 video) you really need to use the .gmv.gz file instead (not fast enough). A K5 is fast enough to stream a 1080p x264 video to the eink display. A K4 only streams fast when booted from diags (booting from main uses K3-emulation eink drivers).

Enjoy!
