I don't have _any_ experience with XCD, but I would'nt be surprised if MPlayer would eat it.

EDIT: I just noticed that you're already using MPlayer.....

I couldn't help be notice the mplayer release notes that came out today. Part of which said this:
Quote:
* OGM/Ogg seeking (broken frames) fixed, subtitle fixes, XCD support
Maybe you could grab this and report how it works for the rest of us?

Burning the CUE/BIN and reading the movie from the burned CD ( .dat ) yes .. but playing the BIN itself ? no idea .... search the mplayer ML once the gmane search function is up again ( seems to be down now ) :

XCD playback has actually worked for a long time, you just have to treat them like VCDs. About playing them directly from bin/cue sets, that works too now.

mplayer -vcd 2 -cuefile somefilename.cue

I can also play the few xcd's that I have with no issues on MPlayer... are the files normal AVI or maybe OGM? do U have ogg files support compiled on MPlayer?

Thanks. Now I have been able to create xcde under linux without problems, but I cannot play it with MPlayer.
If I try to do mplayer -vcd 2 (or 1, now I don't remenber, but I've tried both) it detects an AVI file, but it detects it as being a DV format avi, and is not able to play it (result from play is a grey rectangle with some color boxes moving).
The original avi is a DivX one, with mp3 audio, fully playable without problems from the original avi file.
Anyone has any idea what am I making wrong?
I am able to play VCDs, SVCDs and DVDs without problems...

Dont make XCDs from AVIs .... one scratch on the wrong place, and your movie is lost ...

Thanx ChristianHJw, but I knew it before ;-)
I just tried with an AVI I have recorded on a normal CD, to test (I recorded it in a CDRW in xcd mode).
But the CDRW was new, and tried to read it just after burning, without any scratch yet, and I haven't been able to read it :-(
