How to play videos?

Post by svk »

I use SheepShaver (latest builds) in win10 and macos 10.14-10.15.
OS 9.0.4, QuickTime 4.1, also installed QuickTime MoviePlayer 2.5.1
By experience, I found out that you can play vcd video (mpeg1 video / mpeg2 audio) without problems.
I have a couple of questions:

1) Is it normal that when scaling a video to a size larger than the original, or to full screen, the image becomes a scanline?
By the way, if you don't switch the color depth in the system, back and forth, for example, from thousands to a million colors, video playback will be laggin.

2) Are there any other options for playing video files in this emulator?

Sorry for bad English - google translate
