FreeVCD works by looking for a directory called 'MGEGAV' at the root directory of all mounted volumes. It then tries to play all the files in the directory. So, you can use FreeVCD to play back regular movies full screen by making a directory entitled 'MPEGAV' at the root of your hard drive, and placing your movies files within.
