Is there anyway to play .DAT files (from the MPEGAV folder of a VideoCD)?
I have a Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-i9100).
Try Dolphin Player. It can play MPEG1 file format (= VCD), but cannot choose audio channel if the file is bilingual.
Use VPlayer Video Player or BUZZ Player.
Unlike Astro File Manager, if your file manager doesn't support custom extension handler, open .dat file with
Open As.. option and choose
video. From pop-up, choose player app. If
Open As.. option is also not available, rename the extension of file to
mpg. Generally, all file managers handle these extensions. Just make sure there's no default video player set to take over the file opening & choose player app from list.
CX Media Player will help you to play *.dat(vcd)files
You must change the format of the file to mpg or mp4 for example: filename.DAT change to filename.mpg.
You don't have to convert it. Just rename its extension into .MPG using a file manager. Then, play it in MX Player. I have done it before, and it worked.
Download file manager (explorer) from play store and also download mx player,,,,now, open the file manager app and locate your file. Click on it and open it in mx player.
MX Player is the best for .DAT video files.
