Media player 1 which I like to call it is already on your computer. Look under c: than WINDOWS scroll down to the M's and you'll see media player click that. Use the open file in the upper left. If it won't play your VCD that you need to find your disc and look for Active Media player driver or setup.

Media 2 (has a Black backgroud)which you can get from Microsoft has a full ZOOM without the boarders. This is my fav.

Media 7 (Not a good idea) This requires windows 98 or newer. Overrides all your media players and you CAN'T get rid of it.

Other players like Xing VCD player is available for free.

Try MpegPlayerV.3.36 or ASUSTek ASUSDVD V1.2 . Windows Media Player loads to long to wait to see the movie comes out. Try MpegPlayer if you want smaller files.

try this player if you would like... it's probably one the best out there... it's called Global DIVX - it plays DVD, VCD, DIVX (dvd rips)... it will work on even some of the slower PCs such as P233 and up... it's at
