VCD frame size definition is 352x240 (NTSC standard) and 352x288 (PAL standard). This definition applies to all standardize VCD disc. PC terminology defines this standard as 1/4 frame size, which doesn't mean that the DVD player will play it that way on your TV screen. MPEG organization decided to adopt this format years ago for compressing and quality purposes to make VCD so that 1 hour and 14 minutes of movie clip will fit into one CD (yes you can use the whole 74 minutes!). So the answer to your question is yes, it will play full screen on your TV through your DVD player.

Make a 352x240 16bit steroeo audio mpeg file of the captures and burn it to cdr using Nero 4.0 or higher. This is available for free 1 month demo at www.ahead.de

To burn the VideoCD ----------------------- Load up Nero, click on VideoCD icon, and drag and drop your mpg file into the white file box, then just click on the Write icon (burn) and off it goes. Then you need a DVD home player that can read cdrs (does not matter if it can read vcd, it has to read cdr too) Best ones are old Sony DVD, Apex 600A and Shinko. Hope this helps. enjoy!
