Strange VCD Issue
Posted 25 December 2003 - 07:14 PM
Is there some kind of VCD player i could burn, put in my Dreamcast, and then put an original/Standard VCD/SVCD disc in and it would play? This way it would save me a lot of time, discs, money, etc. So i am wondering if i can just do it this way. So far i have tried the gyplay lik-sang Edition and if i take the disc out and put the VCD in then it doesnt detect any disc is in the drive.
So does anyone know the name of/where to get some VCD/SVCD software for my dreamcast that will allow me to swap in the VCD/SVCD instead of burning it along with the player? Ive heard of this being done so i know its possible its just difficlult to find.
Thanks in advance

The 2nd option is to buy a VCD player for DC. Lik-Sang has it for 25 bucks, it comes with a remote and a cd you use to boot up your vcd's. I heard it has good quality, but I don't have one myself so I can't garantee it .
In general you would be better off just buying a 50 dollar DVD player really, those things support everything these days. Most will also support SVCD and mp3 and you'll get better quality than DC could ever provide, plus you don't tax your DC too much by watching movies on it.

The thing about VCDs on the DC is i can do it on VGA which would look much nicer (especially for Anime) and i dont want to spend 80+ dollars on an RCA to VGA box
ahh well, i guess its between the VGA box or risk it at lik-sang...
i could use the VGA box for other systems too i guess so maybe ill have to go with that, its just another reason to get one
