Unhappy VCD problems, please help!

Hey.
I have burned a Video Cd (vcd) and I didn't know how to open it. I was told to go to the cd, enter MPEGAV directory and drag the *.dat file into the Windows Media Player. It is weird, cause it was good before, but now it writes me: 'No combinations or filters could be found to render the stream'. I wonder how can I watch them... I gave it to one friend, and it worked for him too. And I gave it to an other friend, and it didn't work for him (so this revoke the claim that this cd is damaged).
Please help soon!
thanks alot m8s!

I don't know any other media program. I know QuickTime, MMJB and such, but none of the above I know can open vcd files.

Later on I'll try downloading the WinCoder from the same place and by Indeo too, and hopefully it will work from Windows Media Player too!!

Chopper, so WinDVD and PowerDVD should do the work (I was told that this is because it ain't a vcd - it is a svcd, and windows media player does not compail it correctly).
thanks.
