XBMC doesn't play VCDs

Hello there!

I have in my possesion two, retail, VCDs. One is very old, from the 90s, and one is from 2006.
When inserting a VCD into the console XBMC loops trough two or three different prompts, talking about parsing something. This goes on for barely a minute.
After a while it just gives up saying it couldn't play the video. Same thing happens if I use the filebrowser to try to manually play the video file.
What's wrong with it?

I played a VCD on xbmc once, but that was over 10 years ago now... I can confirm that it worked back then (not that it really helps you, sorry)

He wants you to post a log, so people can see what the issue is. That should help in debugging it

All I can tell you is that it wasn't recognised - you can try enabling "Full Codec Support" in the video playback settings, or try and play with mplayer to see if that helps.

What brand of DVD drive do you have? I vaguely remember that some brands were better than others when it came to reading CD's.
