Creating VCDs

Postby al_gong on Wed Dec 31, 1969 11:48 pm

I've been trying to create VCDs using Dazzle's Main Actor software and I haven't had any luck. I'm burning the cd using Roxio Easy CD Creator 5 and viewing it on my computer and a VCD capable DVD player. I can view the mpg file on my computer without any problem, but, I haven't been able to view it on my DVD player. I've tried writing at slower speeds and using different CD-R media. Can someone suggest how I can create VCDs?

Are you just dragging and dropping the MPG video onto a data CD and burning it?

Not exactly, I'm selecting the file and then I click on the add button. After that, I burn the file onto a data CD-R disc.

Are you using Easy CD Creator Basic or the Platinum version?

Nero 5 is also able to create VCDs with custom menus.
It is also able the make SVCDs with the mpeg2 plugin.
I have made some vacation SVCDs using this and it works great. There is a walkthough available to do this at www.vcdhelp.com
The more I figure out, the more I realize how little I know.
