Play Time on VCD and SVCD : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Whats the max time for a 700MB or 800MB CD-R for a VCD and SVCD?

I didn't know there was such thing as 800mb CD-R, where can i get those?

Anways for a 700mb CD-r the time is 80min I believe for VCD, and as far as SVCD, since SVCD is VBR, it could be whatever you want.

I think you mean 74 minute and 80 minute CDR. These are capacity figures for audio (CDDA) files. VCD files on these media are approx 65 and 70 minutes respectively.

you can fit 74mins of video and audio on a video cd. On a super vcd for a 74min cdr you can get about 32mins. For an 89min cdr you can get about 34min

whoops that should be for an 80min cdr not an 89 min my typing strikes again

you can fit more than 32min of svcd on one disc since it doesn't have a fixed bitrate. So it's a judgement of quality vs quantity. Max 2600kbps
