How to Play a VCD on Your Computer

VCD , short for Video Compact Disc, is a disc that contains video files. It can be played using standard VCD or DVD as well as CD-ROM or DVD drives on a computer. If you want to watch a movie saved on a VCD, you can do so using your computer’s CD or DVD player. Before you can play a VCD on your computer, make sure you have a media player installed on your computer. For Windows OS users, Windows Media Player is a built-in tool. Mac computers, on the other hand, have QuickTime Player. Instructions
