No. Sorry.

Yes. Sorry Jon. You can download VMPEG 1.12, a Dos-based shareware MPEG program, from It will play VCD Mpeg-1 movies.

Impresive. But how good is the decoding? How old is it? DOS based!! I am very impresed

...oops! That program plays MPEG VIDEO only. No audio. If you can live without running DOS (is it an old machine, or what?), you should try LINUX. It is free, multitasking, runs on almost anything, has infinite free tech support on the web, and even runs useful programs like DOS emulators and a full screen shareware ($10) VCD players (with audio, mind you!). See for details. It is a bit tricky to setup, though. Not for amateurs. But, what the hey, you might learn something!

I have found 2 dos VCD players:

MPEGone (command Prompt)


QuickView - DOS multimedia viewer

I use them as windows (any and every version) refuses to play VCD's on my computer since I changed from an ATI graphics card a while ago.
