Is it possible to get a VCD to autoplay on PC's?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread
Is it possible to get a VCD to autoplay on PC's using Easy CD Creator Deluxe? Maybe an autoplay.exe file? It would have to autoplay from multiple viewers (i.e. Xing, windows media player, etc.) ,

So far autoplay only works if the player is on the same disc. Some Video CD players like CDWizard from CyberLink(makers of PowerDVD) do add an item to the SystemTray that asks to autoplay any Video CD inserted. PowerDVD and XingDVDPlayer do this as well but only with DVD movies.

I ran across the same problem. I ended up just converting the dat files to mpg and putting an autorun file on the CD as well(this utilizes the machines' mpeg player). The CD will be compatible with any PC.........just not VCD players. E-mail me if you're interested and need help with the conversion or the autorun feature.
