I also have been reading a lot and am confused on how to burn a SVCD. Do I have to convert the VOB files to another format. Nero says that they have to be MPEG2, but I am not sure on how to do this.
If you want to encode a VCD, you need to buy the MPEG2 Plugin from Nero $16. Though I'm not sure if you need to encode it as an AVI first. I don't use VCDs.
If you want to watch the files from your hard drive, I don't know of a player that will play VOB files... think you have to use something like Vidomi to encode it as an AVI.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
I've found that DVD Decrypter is a bit slower, but it does a better job removing region codes.
