Putting everything together

Most of the presets are pretty straightforward to replicate. Just get the font, put it on the SD card and off there you go. However, the spectrum song and the despicable me presets require a little more work. For the despicable me font, I simply grabbed the "bee boo" sound, made sure it looped ok, saved it as "humm.wav" in the font directory. Then I added the "it's so fluffy I'm gonna die" quote as "font.wav".

The spectrum song preset is a little more complicated. First you need to obtain the spectrum song video, then export the audio from that as 16-bit PCM, 44100Hz, Mono. Save that has "humm.wav" in your font directory. Second, you must must compile the videotoblc program. It comes with ProffieOS, but is a separate program. videotoblc also relies on having "ffmpeg" installed, so if you don't have that, it's not going to work. Once you have videotblc and ffmpeg installed, you should be able to run "videotblc spectrum_song.mp4 >humm.blc" to get a BLC file. Put that file in your font directory, and then everything should work as in my demo.
