    Question about making VCD's..

    Not everyone will know what I am talking about, but if you can help it would be greatly appreciated.
    I have a regular cd burner and I contantly make VCD's (Video cd's) to play in my dvd player in my car (I put music video's on them). I can usually fit about 15 music video's on each cd.
    Recently, my dad purchased a dvd burner. I thought that was great for my VCD's so I could fit MANY videos on a DVD than a standard cd. When I went to make one using Roxio, it STILL only let me put 15 videos on it before it filled up. The program EXPANDED the MPEG files when it was placed on dvd list.
    Has anyone ever made a VCD with MANY videos using a dvd burner?? Any tips....Thanks in advance!

    I use Roxio 6 & Nero 6 Ultra. No complaints on either yet. I have a Pioneer 16x DVD-burner but I always use 2X and NEVER get errors.

    VCDs are MPEGs. DVDs are MPEG2.

    You may be able to use Nero (unless you know how to encode, [url=www.doom9.org] Doom9 is a VERY helpful resource) to just pop basic .mpg files onto a DVD. It should allow more than 15 minutes of video, that's for ****ed sure.

    Re: Question about making VCD's..

    yea i used to burn anime episodes to vcd. Ya gotta use a program called tempgenc or someting like that i havent done it for a long time to convert the file to the correct format, then, you use nero and select video cd, and drag the files in. I usually fit 3-4 episodes of anime on one disc, meaning around 70 minutes of video. Pretty cool stuff
