Episode 68 - AGA Blaster Video Player Review and Tutorial

This week I am reviewing and providing a tutorial on setup of the awesome AGABlaster software for the Amiga. This software can create a 256 color AGA CDXL file that plays back wonderfully on your AGA Amiga. I walk you thru a bit of background on the technology, how to set it up in Windows 10 using the Ubuntu Linux Terminal, and how to create and play back the incredible videos!
