Playing VCDs on a PC

I have created a thumbnail image menu system using Nero55 which when it is selected dispalys the full sized photo image on the TV via a DVD player. What FREE software can I use to run the VCD on my PC - many do not seem to run a menu system? Thanks David

You can play VCD's on windows media player.

I think you need XP to use media player VCD/DVD feature.

Thanks for your replies - I am not keen to use WMP. I really want someone to tell me they have used free VCD prog that will play a VCD with a menu sytem consisting of thumbnails, each of which will open a full version of the image on a PC. Thanks David

Britto, my mate plays his VCD's on his Win 98se PC.

Start up WMP and click on open, find your data file on your vcd disk and choose it click on ok, and enable open this file type with WMP....TT

THE TERMINATOR, what are you on about? It's not my thread.

I don't play VCD's on my Pc. Got a DVD player in the living room that plays VCD's and a 28" wide screen.

Why on earth, would I watch them on a monitor?

As I have said has any one used a VCD player prog using a menu system, other than WMP, on their PC, if so please let me know if its freeware. Thanks David
