Can anyone tell me whats the format of video cd? i have a real VCD (only playable in Powerd DVD and the likes) and id like to put on the cd JUST the movie files. There are 2 dat files on the CD (together they make 670 MB, so i guess those are the movie ones ;) ), but what files do they really are? asf? mpeg? cause i wanted to see the thing w/ no comercials and subtitles.
and one more thing, can i convert it do DivX?
thkx in advance mates

The dat files on the VCD's are Mpeg1 video with some extra information concerning playback control etc for vcd players (has anyone got one of thouse:p) Anyways to convert them to DiVX you need to use a vcd to avi converter like vcdgear. Instructions and links to required programs are available at http://www.digital-digest.com/nickyguides/vcd-2-divx.htm

This guide is older the new version 4 of the DiVX codec is at www.divx.com

Hope that helps

I wish I would start buying 700mb CD-Rs, some of these movies are getting bulky, you need 2 just for FF:TSW VCD!

Most VCD movie rips are 2CDs, Asz, with about 400-500MB on each CD, but of course, it varies..

I sometimes rent the DVD's from blockbuster, burn them to a XVCD or XVCD's and watch them on my laptop:D :cool:

Yes VCD's are mpeg-1, but when you make them to XVCD you get a little more better quality (but it'll take a little bit more space on your disc:rolleyes: as well:D )

Like for example I made Jet Li's "Fist of Legend" on 2 disc's 80 min C-DR's;

---------------------------Film----------------------Disc------------------------------
Disc-1:-------------------50:16--------------------79:00-----------------------------
Disc-2:-------------------50:57--------------------80:00-----------------------------


As you can see difference from the film's length and how much space it takes on the disc. O yeah the bitrate was 2000;) , plus including some configuring on the different encoders, plus when converting a film to mpeg-1, it will take some hours as well:D
