DC Movie Player

icon DC Movie Player is a multi-media application for the Dreamcast, it has the ability to play a variety of video and audio formats including AVI, VCD, MP3, OGG, and many others. The application is an early Dreamcast player created by bero, the same author who ported many of the older First Person Shooters to the console.

The CD Image contains test release 1 of DC Movie Player along with a short movie encoded with DivX for you to try out the application. Data CDs, VCD, and SVCD are autodetected after disk swap, and although supported, high quality videos, VCD/SVCD and MPEG in particular, may have audio/video synch issues - meaning the sound or picture will skip to keep up with each other, AVI playback is good and an improvement on the DCDivX player. NOTE: this application may not play movies encoded with newer codecs, this application was released in 2003 when DivX 5 was the then current release.

The story of one ill-fated pair of professional killers. If the siblings weren't cursed by their own ineptitude, thwarted by their 1970 Cadillac Sedan DeVille, and sick and tired of each other, they would be truly dangerous. Traversing the desert, Salvatore and Angela are just trying to get to their hit on time, knock off their guy, and make it to Uncle Luigi's in time for dinner. However, when their Cadillac breaks down...

Boot Discs

Along with the sampler CD Image there are two Boot CD Images that do not contain any additional multimedia files, they contain the original release binary, readme, and sourcecode for the application. Both releases of DC Movie Player had 'Test Version' appearing onscreen in large text, the text has been removed from the boot discs (it is also removed from the sampler CD Image that contains the free movie), however, the original unaltered binaries are included as extras on both disks.
