X-VCD Player is a simple Windows tool supposed to help you play VCD disks on your computer with minimum effort.
What's more, everything's pretty basic after launching the application and you shall notice this just after starting it for the first time.
The interface is minimal and doesn't provide more than the must have utilities for controlling the playback.
All features are grouped in a single window, so you are allowed to choose the drive you wish to use for playing a VCD disk, as well as the the track of the selected disk.
Other than that, it features exactly the same goodies as a traditional video player, with the common controls for pausing, stopping and playing the content. Plus, you can zoom the image and display logging information.
There is no other configuration screen, which is quite good news for beginners who don't want to get too deep underneath the hood of the app. On the other hand, those with a bit more computer knowledge might be disappointed that they're not allowed to customize the program, so this could be an area to be improved in the future.
On the good side however, X-VCD Player works like a charm on all Windows workstations and it doesn't slow down the system even when playing VCD discs on Windows 7.
All in all, X-VCD Player may come in handy to some of the users out there, but it's pretty obvious that it still needs a couple of improvements in key areas. A more appealing interface and configuration options are must-haves.
