It is the video cd format and you can burn it straight to a CD and play it in a DVD player but the format often behaves oddly in DVD players like it will skip to the start randomly or show incorrect timing info. Movies used to come on CDs before DVD (remember Philips CDI?).There are a few programs to convert the .bin file. VCD Gear is one of them but it always seems to give errors for me. The best tool I've used for this sort of thing is Gumby:http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/13964Use the mpeg/VCD tool and then select the .bin file and then process it. It should extract a .mpeg.

Here's a copy of it:http://www.sharebigfile.com/file/257...y-50c.zip.htmltype in the code and hit submit to start the download.It's the VCD tab you want to use, not the bin tab. That's for something else.Drag the .bin into the window and hit process. I think VLC plays .bin files but I still find it's best to convert to an mpeg.VCD Gear has an OS X GUI somewhere but as I say, it's been pretty unreliable for me at conversions.
