VCD - MPEG-1 video, 1.115 Mbps constant bit rate 352x240 NTSC or 352x288 PAL resolution 224 Kpbs MPEG-1 layer II audio SVCD - MPEG-2 video, no more than 2.6 Mbps constant or variable bit rate are OK 480x480 NTSC or 480x576 PAL resolution MPEG-1 layer II audio or MPEG 5.1 audio are OK, bit rates up to 360 Kbps are permitted

VCD players rarely play SVCD because SVCD uses MPEG-2 video.
