Need for Speed II was the second game released as part of Electronic Arts' Need for Speed franchise. It allowed players to race a number of exotic cars on racetracks located around the world. EA released Need for Speed II in 1997 and has since released over 20 additional Need for Speed games.

DCT movies feature real-life footage of cars that players can unlock within Need for Speed II. Players could watch these movies while learning more about the cars they'd acquired.

How do I open a DCT file?

Because DCT files are so uncommon, most popular media players cannot play them. However, you can play DCT files in VLC media player, and you can convert them to a more usable video format using FFmpeg.
