    1) If you have any movie, prepare first the correct .MPG with TMPGenc (PAL/NTSC, VCD/SVCD - but the SVCD is less compatible with any DVD player and it occupies more disk space; more, it needs a high quality input movie or you don't gain anything...).
    If the move is an .AVI, keep FFDshow as decoder installed. If the movie is a .MPG no problem should occur (well, if it's a MPEG-1. If it's a MPEG-2, like the ones from a SVCD or a DVD, it's harder because you cannot use TMPGenc if you don't convert the MPEG-2 to MPEG-1 first, using Womble MPEG Editor, for example)
    3) Create a .CUE/.BIN for a PAL/NTSC VCD (or a SVCD) with VCDEasy then burn it with the application that you like most (or burn it directly with VCDEasy, if your burner supports CDRDAO).

    This is simply my choice. Some other people use VCDGear, I never saw it..
