There is a package called aa in linux which represents an extraordinary use of ascii video. The package img2txt is also pretty good in doing what its name implies. The plugin caca for mplayer plays videos in ascii characters. (mplayer -vo caca ) I saw it first in a serial called "Chuck". But later I found out that this is not a new concept at all. ASCII videos can be pretty awesome too.
