MacVCD X is the full featured Macintosh movie player that plays Video CD, Super VCD, and Quicktime movies. VCD movies are frequently stored in multiple files (called tracks) and because of CD storage size limitations, are often stored on more than one disk.

MacVCD X recognizes the VCD format, finds, loads and plays the movie for you, automatically chaining the tracks together and ejecting the disk when it's done. Sit back and enjoy the movie on full screen, or even on your TV, with no interruptions except to insert the next disk.

Discover the easy way to play VCD, SVCD and almost everything else with this easy to use media player for OS X. MacVCD X plays VCD, SVCD, AVI, DivX, MPEG, video, Quicktime movies and more. This software offers all the playback features you need and the ease of use you really want from a video player. With Video CD Format recognition, you can play VCDs and SVCDs in just one step. You can also play all your other movies - XVCD, SXVCD, AVI, DivX, MPEG, video, Quicktime movies and more. Use the screen display you prefer - full screen display, small screen display (floating or regular window), or show on your TV. Get the features you want - movie saving, track selection & repeat track features, multi-language & karaoke VCD support with this easy to use video player. MacVCD X also features advanced features such as Hands Free(TM) speech activated controls, fast-motion, slow-motion and backwards playback. (Note: SVCD, AVI, DivX playback require component-see system requirements).
