Does anyone know where to get Microsoft ActiveMovie? I could not find it on Microsoft's website.

ActiveMovie is gone. It is outdated and crappy. You have to download Windows Media Player 6.1 to view VCDs now.

Thank for the info. I downloaded Media Player 6.1. How do I play the VideoCD? I could not find a place where opening a CD is allowed. The help screen does not contain VideoCD or VCD keywords either.

On all of my VCDs I just find the *.dat file and play that. At Files of type: select (*.*) All Files ... or something like that... and it shows all file types, including dat.
