    VLC should be able to do it.

    Make sure you select 'Open Disc' if you want to play a VCD.

    Like Arn said, you'll have to use VLC. But I'd also recommend going to Apple's feedback page and letting them know that you want VCD support. I did this just last night, but the more people the better.
