icon VC/DC is a multimedia player, the application was mainly created for playback of VideoCD movies on the Dreamcast, but MPG videos and MP3 audio files are also supported. The application also has theme support similar to DCDivX, which means you can create onscreen wallpaper to match the audio and video content on the CD.

This CD Image contains VC/DC 0.2 and features the excellent short animation Elephants Dream, along with the movie the complete soundtrack by Jan Morgenstern is also included as a bonus. The animated short is the world's first open movie, made entirely with open source graphics software such as Blender, and with all production files freely available to use however you please, under a Creative Commons license. Elephants Dream is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 license, the DVD version can also be purchased from the Blender store.
