    Note that in Mode 2 (VCD, SVCD) you can fit 800mb to a 700mb, due to lesser error correction.

    I don't think that there are any quality issues in 90/99min CDs. The problem is that they are not standard discs and many devices have problems playing them and of course your recorder needs to support them too.

    flox03,

    It's not as straight forward as that. The fact is that in mode to CD carries more data, since there is no error proctection coding, so more capacity is available.

    VCD on the other hand can have different bitrates (bits used per second of movie), so the minutes fittend on a CD can differ. VCD and SVCD use mode 2. For SVCD you typically can fit 45-60 minutes of good quality video for an 80min/700mb disc - this is when you are encoding the movie by yourself.
