You can buy a MPEG PC card but it goes for about 80.00(US). Many places like,, A better alternative might be to use software. If you machine is a P75+ then you can use an MPEG-2 Decoder to play back the Mpeg-1 streams, course that goes for $200.00+(US). My opinion is usually to avoid add-ins unless the machine is real old. MPEG Decoder cards do not work on Win NT, Dos, or Windows 3.1 just Win 95/98.
