I have searched the forums to see if my problem was answered, and it wasn't, so here goes. I have converted the VOB files from a DVD into a variable bit rate SVCD (MPEG-2) file with TMPGEnc. The file plays absolutely fine on my computer. I then used TMPGEnc to multiplex the file with the header of a standard VCD - http://www.geocities.com/newestmoviesencode/dvdvcd - this should make my DVD player play an SVCD (which it doesn't naturally support) by fooling it in to thinking it is playing a VCD. Then I burned the file as a VCD with Nero on the lowest speed - 4x - with a Plextor 40/12/40A. I have tried this trick before with a constant bitrate SVCD file, and it worked. But with this file the video comes out ever so slightly jerky. Is this because I have used a variable bit rate file? The disc plays fine on my computer's DVD software, and also on my friends DVD player which also does not support SVCD. Why does it not play on my player?
