4 : receiving an ultra cool gift of Invader Zim on VCD from an ultra cool friend and not being able to get a single computer in your house to play a VCD. i suspect i will have to transfer the DVD player to the Windows box because maybe installing WinDVD doesn’t work on CD players? it’s not my last hope, but it’s among them.

i will prevail, never fear. but this may mean i’ll be spending my christmas eve up to my elbows in computer guts. which would be quite festive, come to think of it.

anyway, kurtwood, like another cool kid, convinced daddy to let us open just one gift this eve, and i opened the package from Mr. Blank (kurtwood got his cool kid camera). There are four VCDs with custom CD sticker thingys on them, brilliant work. i will make them play. ZIIIIIIIM!

  1. hope you and your adorable boy have a very merry christmas, kd! and yes, too many tamales is not a good thing. we have leftovers if you’re interested.

  2. http://www.vcdhelp.com is a good place to find info on how to play VCDs.

    There are MPEG files in one of the folders on the disk (they have a .dat extention, I think) that Windows Media Player can play. Just look for the really big files and open them with WMP. Most DVD players should be able to handle the disks and the menus, but if you have no DVD player WMP will work.

    Sorry to cause all of the frustration!
