Video explains the basics of barcodes and runs us through how one can crack various flawed implementations in Parking tickets, Recycling machines, Access control systems, DVD rentals, Newspaper Ads, Postal codes, Airline boarding tickets, Baggage tracking, etc.

A quick demo of how to use off the shelf software to read / write barcodes is available here:

Nice talk, just got done with it. I didn't think it would be too interesting but I was wrong. Funny, my gf just brought home a barcode scanner as I'm watching it, haha.

Yes, even i thought it would not be too great. Somehow the first couple of minutes are awfully slow ... but once you get through the first 10 minutes or so, you get glued !

For sure, and you don't realize how many barcodes you've actually come in contact with until you see everything he points out. The best part is the long string of zeros used in validating paid postal mail, ahhhhhh.....
