Where can I find a Video CD/ CD-i Emulator?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Does anybody know if there is an emulator availble for CD-i or VCD for the PC. I dont mean just an MPEG player but something to emulate the CD-I interface? ie show pics of the index points and play the proper intros. I can then throw my old phillips CD-i player away at last!!

Visit http://dana.ucc.nau.edu/~dbt/CDi/CDiMain.html for the only known CD-I emulator project in existence. Maybe if you send this guy some money he'll have an emulator for you by this summer. (Maybe)

just play the stupid *.dat file with media player or any other player you want... or extract the file to mpg with isobuster...

CD-I emulators are now available within some VCD's which shows what ever menus or titles that are shown when the VCD is inserted into a convectional VCD Player. But, it is just another MPEG player using windows capabilities. What I always dream about is an independent VCD Player emulator which can boot by itself onto any PC's so that, PC's can be used as an advanced VCD Player. I am tired with the problem of handling Scratched CD's in PC's, which will finally end up in a system crash...
