    I'm not an expert, but a quick search shows that there aren't really any good options right now to play SVCDs on a Mac. VLC Media Player would have been my recommendation, but their SVCD support is currently incomplete.

    There is a shareware program called MacVCD X, but you would need to pay $19.95 to unlock the full-featured player and another $19.95 for the QuickTime 6 MPEG2 Playback Component.

    If it's a straight-through disc without menus or any other hierarchy, then it should play fine.
