The main purpose of MIL-CD was to add multimedia functions to music CDs, for use in Sega's Dreamcast games console. For example, MIL-CD music releases were to feature enhanced navigational menus, internet capabilities, and full-screen video. It was similar to tests done with Audio CD/CD-ROM combo disks on PCs, DVD-Video/DVD-ROM combo disks on PCs, game systems and DVD Players, as well as game/video combo discs for systems like the PlayStation 3.
The Dreamcast's support for the MIL-CD format allowed hackers to bypass the Dreamcast security, allowing the creation of such utilities as the Bleemcast PlayStation emulator, the creation of homebrew titles for the machine, and ability to run bootlegged games and games from other regions via the Utopia bootdisk or older apps.
