    Can someone explain to me what are the differences between VCD, SVCD, KVCD and which ones the best to create from a mpeg movie file and use. Or if there is anything better other than VCD, SVCD, KVCD please let me know.

    Also can someone explain to me how to create it. I have a mpeg movie file and want to create a playable movie, which I can play on a standalone DVD player.

    Open to all suggestions...

    first thing, its the wrong topic.

    but anyway.
    vcd - resolution 352x240, mpeg1
    svcd - resolution 480x480, mpeg2
    kvcd - 352x240, with more customization for compressibility, which may or may not pla properly on a standalone.


    modo, could you move this thread.
    beermike, how about details on your source.

    Ok I'll try yo clarify what I need help with...
    I have a Mpeg1 NTSC SIF (352x240/30FPS) file which I believe is kvcd converted mpeg. Now what I want to do is create a best possible quality and sounnd playable cd/dvd that'll play on most or even all if possible standalone dvd players.

    anyway i'll just make a post.
    yes, what you get there is indeed a vcd, what differentiate it from kvcd is the CQM (custom quant matrix)

    the best quality is to burn it as it is as a vcd.
    asy reencoding or even upsampling is useless and only waste bits.
