Manged to get 16 frames of full motion (if chunky) video compressed into here before running into the limits of the compressed cart size. Frames are stored as run-length encoded images, with only the difference between frames being noted/redrawn.
I used a custom python script and some elbow grease (file renaming and bulk resizing) to get the images converted into the string format.
I think you could get twice as much if you used a 'blob' as a pixel. I saw this done ages ago in a demoscene kind of file - the "video" resolution was probably half or 1/4 of the actual display resoultion, but each unit was drawn as a soft round blob with soft edges that overlayed adjacent blobs. Kind of like when you scale up a pixelated image. was very effective, you still got the gist of what was going on, and they had a lot of "video".
