Playorama is a cranky video player for the Playdate. You can use the crank to fast forward and backward or move frame by frame through a video.


While a video is playing, you can use the following controls.

  • A: pause
  • B: menu
  • Up: toggle track bar
  • Left and Right: toggle through different playback speed
  • Crank: change playback speed up to 4x

If the video is paused, using Left and Right or the Crank will move frame by frame.


Playorama has two options available in the Playdate System Menu:

  • VCR effect: adds a VCR pause effect to the video when going fast forward, backward or frame by frame.
  • Log: show errors that occured while opening your own video and audio files.


You can add your own videos by connecting  your Playdate to your computer in Data Disk mode. To encode your videos, you can use the online Playdate Video Encoder. For more details and troubleshooting, you can consult the README on the project's source code on GitHub.
