According to:


mplayer-0.90-rc3 has XCD support. Prior to that, you could play 
MPEG-only streams from an XCD with the -vcd option.

And we've been at rc5 since Makefile v1.51, March 26th, so it looks like 
it should work...

Mplayer is referenced for Linux/XCD users in the alt.binaries.movies FAQ:


This also says to treat it like a VCD for mplayer.

This thread says to burn the image to a CDR with cdrdao (presumably 'coz 
it's 2352-byte raw sector data a la CDDA, one of the main points of the 
XCD format) and then use 'mplayer -vcd 2' to watch the movie:

Heh. I've never seen an XCD, otherwise I'd try it myself... ;-)
