successful burn of VCD, plays with trouble in dvd playergreenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread
Any help would be appreciated. I am able to successfully create a valid mpg file using the Hueris templates and successfully author a VCD with Easy CD Creator on CDRW. Disc works great in PC. My standalone dvd player recognizes and begins to play the disc.
The problem is with the standalone dvd player, the video playback is extremely choppy and the video frames are broken up into several square blocks, some displaying and others not. I have tried burning the disc at 1x, 2x, and 4x - but still no luck. Anyone else experience this? Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

Not all DVD players/models/sub-models support CDr and/or CDrw. See if your model is listed at the following link.
The problem could also be with your encoding. The best way to test your player and emcoding methods is to get a copy of a 'stamped' VCD and use a file from that as your test video source (i.e. Dat2MPG then burn).

make sure you are using disk that do not say audio only. Other than that any disks should be sufficient. Most DVD players will not play homemade video cds, especially on CD-R. A lot of them will play them from a CD-RW disks. Try taking your VCD to a dealer and try the disks in different players. The Pioneer 525 will play both types of disks.

I had similar problems when I burnt my first vcd on a cdrw and tested it on my standalone mico a-980 dvd/vcd player. However when I changed the disc to a cdr (infiniti sterling 74 min silver coloured underside) the same thing happened. When I changed to the blue dye infiniti cdr (used for psx backups)it worked perfectly. So it could be the media you are using. If not then there must be some problem in your encoding

Are you sure the VCD is actually a VCD and not a SVCD???
The symptoms sound like it is a SVCD, and your DVD player does not support this format; I had exactly the same problem.

HEY THE ISSUE IS NOT IN THE BURNING ITSELF, ITS IN THE ENCODING //BASED ON THE DESCRIPTION OF THE OUTPUT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR CONVERTING A DIVX MOVIE. FIRST, I WOULD TRY WHAT SOMEONE ELSE SAID, MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT TRYING TO MAKE A SVCD, BURN AS A VCD. 2ND, I RAN INTO A SIMILAR PROBLEM WHEN TRYING TO MODIFY THE BIT RATE OF A SVCD, IF ALL ELSE FAIL, TRY USIN G A DIFFERENT PROGRAM TO ENCODE THE FILE - I.E. NERO EASYVCD //Cinema Craft Encoder
