VCD (Video Compact Disc) is nothing more than a digital format for storing video on a CD. It’s typically used for mass video distribution, and can generally be played on most DVD players. So maybe you’re wondering what does this have to do with DAT file Mac formats. Well, when playing VCD on Mac, there’s usually a DAT file within it, which contains more data and information for the VCD program to run.
But what you’ll find is that in order to open DAT file on Mac, you have to jump through hoops. It’s not as simple or universal as other formats like MP3 or MP4 for example, so not many apps support it. It’s designed for use by an application, not to be opened up manually by users. But in any case, when you’ve extracted the DAT file from the VCD, you need a player or app that can natively play DAT without the need to convert, compress, or go through any other process.
