Supported are MPEG files with suffix .MPG, .M1V, .MPE, .MPV and .DAT. DAT files are
files from the VideoCD that are usually named AVSEQ01.DAT and so on.
VideoCDs and CD-i (partly) are supported using the /VCD command.
The player is a 32 bit protected mode program and therefore needs at least
a 80386 processor. For playback of MPEGs with higher resolutions, a Pentium
166 system is recommended. For sound decoding you must have a coprocessor.
Full screen video playback is supported either using hardware scaling
(certain graphics chips only) or via software (requiring more CPU power).
The player will run under DOS 3.0 or better, or in a DOS shell under Windows
95/98 and OS/2. You must have a VGA card in your system. For sound support
you must have a Sound Blaster compatible sound card, a Gravis UltraSound
Classic or MAX, or a Windows Sound System.
There is no installation necessary.
The player will automatically detect your machine, memory and graphics
card. For sound support with a Sound Blaster, compatible or ESS chip you
must have the Environment variable BLASTER set containing port address,
IRQ and DMA channel or the appropriate ULTRASND variable for the Gravis
UltraSound. A Windows Sound System card is autodetected.
