greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

i've copied the .mpg file to a CD-R media. how do i play it in a VCD player (autoload) ? i noticed that there'r some folders in an original VCD such as EXT, CDI, KARAOKE, and so on ...what are those files ?

I just need to know how to create a VCD that works on any external player (assuming my VCD player can read CDR media) Thanks !!!!

what software should i use ?

You can use either Easy CD Creator Deluxe Version or Win On CD 3.6 / 3.7 Power Edition.

You MUST use vcd authoring to create a real VCD, otherwise it's just a disk with a mpg file on it. It would be impossible for someone using regular cd-r software to create a perfect VCD image.

Also, nero 4.x + can also create VCD's. If you are using linux there is a new tool to create vcd images from mpg data, it's posted somewhere on the www.vcdhelper.com site.

Happy encoding.
