You can't play DivX ;-) (aka MPEG4) on the Saturn. VCDs are MPEG1. You could try writing a Saturn player, but I seriously doubt you will achieve anything usable.

Considering Divx runs like ass on the DC, I doubt you'll get anything good out of the saturn. Only system that I see playing Divx's well will be the xbox

forget it.

divx are barely running on a dreamcast, and need a pretty decent PC to work too. saturn isn't all that easy to program for and simply not powerful enough.

Well, I suppose you could make somthing close to the VCD card, which would be able to run Divx. But then again, you would have to know the internal workings of the saturn so well it wouldn't even be worth it.

The Saturn is already difficult to program; I don't see how it can get any easier.
