The MPEG card is an add-on device that handles MPEG-1(ISO 11172) decoding for games that supported it. It also has a built in ROM that allows the user to play Video and Photo CD's. VCDs and XVCDs must be encoded to be VCD compliant. All communication with the device goes through the CD Block using commands. Video output normally goes directly to the VDP2, but it can be changed so it's received through the CD Block. Sound output goes directly to the SCSP.
