Bitcomet and Alcohol 120%

    I have started downloading movies using Bitcomet... and here is my problem. I got one movie that is 812MB in size, that is in VCD format. The sticky part is that the CDR discs are 700MB. I downloaded Alcohol 120%, thinking this would help, but that only made it possibe to watch the movie on the computer (as it is a .bin file) I can't figure out how to compress or shrink the file to fit onto the disc. It will not let me copy on to a DVD disc.. so unless I can convert the file from VCD to DVD, I can't get this movie off my hard-drive.
    Any help at all will be appreciated!!

    This is short version of: http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/mpg/vcd2divx.htm

    1. Mount that VCD with Alcohol and you will see that there is one big .DAT file.
    Copy it to some new folder.
    2. Open VCDGear and select dat -> mpeg from the Extraction / Conversion dropdown list.
    3. Then load that .dat file and select output name and press Start.

    4. Open VirtualDub and press Control-O and select the .mpg file you just created.
    5. Set full processing mode to video (Video -> Full processing mode) and then press Control-F.
    6. Now it is good idea to look that guide to see next settings.
    (I can not explain them any shorter)

    7. After done, you can burn that .avi to cd/dvd
