Has the kernel lied to you before? I'm sure there is no
"emulation" going on and I don't know what that would mean in
this context. VCDs do have a file in the ISO9660 filesystem that
represents the movie, but the movie is actually contained in its
own separate track. I don't think you can get the MPEG PS by
reading that file using an ISO9660 driver. That's why MPlayer
reads the CD directly rather than mounting a filesystem on it.
I'm no expert, so you'd better read detailed descriptions like
the following for authoritative answers.
