Software Requirements
Windows :
There is a standard mpeg support in Windows 95 at least through softwares like Windows Media player installed by default on the system. Other programs providing a mpeg support such as Power player, Real Player, ... can easily be found on the internet .
Linux :
You may have to download yourself the appropriate software, since stable mpeg support is present only in resent Linux releases such as RedHat7.0.
