Stop using Xing. Windows 98SE as it is is well-equipped for VCD playback in the form of Media Player, ver. 6 and above. You point a path to the playable *.dat files in the MPEGAV directory on opening Media Player. The other thing is your VCDs should be as clean and as scratch-free as possible. This is because error correction in Video CDs is not as robust as those for conventional data CD-ROMs.
