<HTML>Hey everybody! I'm a first time poster, and I'm really impressed with the smart answers in this forum. Will y'all bless me with some?

I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to put high-quality video onto a Video CD. I've used toast to burn an MPEG-4 movie, and think I could put about 60 minutes of video onto one CD. But I don't need so much compression for my short projects (ie under 4 minutes). I'd like to be able to distribute the burned CD's to play in DVD players. What's the best quality I can create, and how?

<HTML>Hi Billy,
Have you considered SVCD?

SVCD stands for Super Video CD. A SVCD is like a VCD but the video are stored in MPEG-2 Variabel Bitrate(like DVD Movies) and in higher resolution. A SVCD can contain from about 35 to 80 minutes video/CD(740 MB on a 74 min/cd and 800 MB on 80 min/cd) and therefore most movies on 2-3 CDs. The quality is worse than DVD but better than VCD and VHS. SVCD also supports up to 4 removable subtitles but SVCD subs is only supported by a few standalone DVD Players and no software DVD Player or H+, DXR3, DXR2 supports it.

SVCDs can be played on
- Stand alone VCD/SVCD Players (common in ASiA)
- Many stand alone DVD Players, check here for compability list
- All CD-ROM/DVD-ROM can play SVCDs with a software DVD/SVCD-Player

<HTML>Howdy. here is an excellent resource to answer your VCD questions.
You VCD uses MPEG 1 and SVCD uses MPEG 2. You can fit more data on a standard VCD, (because of the smaller frame size and bit rate) but the quality in my opinion is worse than VHS when played back on a DVD player.
