Autorunning VideoCD : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I made an video cd with Adaptec deluxe 4.0 software and get .dat file in segments folder. Is it possible to make a video CD which will be autorunning, i.e., when you put a cd in CD ROM drive to start automatically with playing movie.

Thank you in advance.

Some video cd programs for your computer can do this.

The best one to use is I-On VCD player. It is free and available from

It is the only player which is fully VCD compliant (try playing a VCD made only of still pictures and you'll see what I mean). There is a still a problem with hi-res still created by VideoPack, but I have not found a single player that would display them correctly. As I-On uses the codecs in your system, there is a chance that this might be fixed in a future release of MediaPlayer.

To make it autorun your VCD you will need to add files to your VCD, this is what I do:

\autorun.inf \WIN\gui.dll \WIN\i-vcdp.exe \WIN\manual.pdf (optional)

autorun.inf is made of the following 3 lines: [AUTORUN] OPEN=WIN\i-vcdp.exe ICON=WIN\i-vcdp.exe

Will Discs with the I-on player embedded work on on systems that do not have the I-on player installed?

Noper. There's an autorun 'program' available for free with instructions at Simply set up Sly's .dat file to point to the VCD's .dat file. Let me know if you have any questions.
