Frustrations, frustrations, frustrations. I have been trying for quite a while to get VCD play going on my ThinkPad, and I've hit another snag. A friend of mine made me some VCDs and basically WiMP couldn't make heads or tails of them. The reason? VCD2. WiMP can grok VCD 1.1 but not VCD2. Bleah. I'd use Linux but apparently there's something funky with the video driver here which doesn't allow a video overlay. All I get when I try to run a VCD in Linux is a solid blue screen in Xine. The audio plays, but no video. Oh well, time to do some more research.
