Applications - Multimedia

This section contains CD Images of various multimedia applications: MP3, OGG, FLAC and many other formats of music players, movie players supporting AVI, MPEG, DivX and XviD among others, there are also picture and text viewers available.

Almost all the CD Images are compiled as 'Boot Discs', meaning you will need to disc swap to use them to their full capacity. Most of the CD Images contain extra bonus content, these are meant as samplers for you to test out the Dreamcast applications, but along with these, there are standard boot discs for you. A lot of the CD Images here contain long forgotten or hard to find software, some are standalone promotional items, either way, we're sure you'll find something of interest in this section.
