    You can use DVD playing software such as Intervideo WinDVD and Cyberlink PowerDVD, as they are both able to play VCDs.

    If WinDVD wont play the vcd, dont worry, just click open and go to the mpegav folder on the vcd and select avseq01.dat! that will play the movie for you! :D

    You can also follow Dela's instructions using Windows Media Player.

    Following on from this, I've just burnt a VCD which has several small movies i.e. in the MPEGAV folder there are several .dat files which play in Windows Media Player.
    My question is this:
    How do I convert these .dat files to .avi or .mpg so I can keep individual clips in separate places?

    Well, use VCDEasy, clcik tools - mpeg tools and then use CDXA2MPEG to save an mpg file from a dat file!

    i find QuickVCD 3.0 is really good. It operates like the old version of WMP 6.4, but has an extra row of buttons showing how many vcds u have on the cd. Also, if u have an ATI video card, u can get the MultiMedia Center. it comes with a vcd player.
