    I never made a vcd before so I thought today I'll try it. I took a mpeg file and went to burn it with Nero. It said it wasn't in the right format so I used TMPGEnc to turn it into a better mpeg file. Used Nero again and it burned with no problems. I went to put it in my DVD player (which does support VCD) and it started but every once in a while part of the picture would be fuzzy, like squares of green or pink, sometimes lines would appear on the screen. Also the sound would cut out for a few sec. I have tried scanning it for bad frames. I tried burning it at a lower speed. I tried re-encoding it again. Its still does it. It looked just fine on my computer so I have no idea what the problem is.

    could be just your player, some dont support VCD very well unfortunately!! or maybe the cd-r media you are using!!

    Can be a few things! some players think that a certain brate is standard so if you go over it or under it it changes the speed of the movie! It's a little strange but sure i mean, there's lots of that around like Sony DVD players only taking cd-rw media and players playing movies that were made with dde sp and not playing those from tmpgenc! lol
