DC Movie Player is a video player developed by Bero. It is based on ffmpeg, with mpeg audio decoding performed by mpglib with a custom dct64 function optimized for the Hitachi SH-4 cpu in the Dreamcast. It supports many container formats and audio/video codecs, but it unfortunately does not contain audio/video synchronization code and is light on features. Despite the lack a/v synch and the small number of features (only Play is supported), the sheer number of formats and codecs supported and the picture quality make this a rather impressive player. Sadly, development on this player appears to have stopped shortly after the release of the second test version in 2003.
