Why doesn't Zoom Player play my Burnt SVCD discs?

When burning the MPEG-2 SVCD file, a wrapper is added to the file. In order to parse this file structure, you need an SVCD parsing filter.

Currently, the authors of XCD (the burn 800mb AVI/OGM media on 80min CD project) wrote a DirectShow filter that should parse SVCD properly and as such allow you to use SVCD discs or Daemon Tools mounted images with Zoom Player. For this filter to work properly, you MUST run it's installer, manually registering the filter file is insufficient!

The latest version of this filter should always be available here.
