How to create VideoCD from an MPEG-2. : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I have some good MPEG-2 video files, which to too big to fit into a CD. I want to put them onto CD's as VCD's. Can anybody help how can i do this.

I have some suggestions. 1) You could try to re-encode the video with TMPGenc to MPEG-1. I think it is possible to do this with TMPGenc, but I've never tried. 2) The commercial product MPG2VCR ( could re-encode your video to MPEG-1. It costs $249 :-( but it's a frame accurate MPEG-1/2 editor and it can re-encode video. 3) You could get the program ReMPEG and re-encode the video to a lower bit rate. ReMPEG can't convert to MPEG-1, but you could drop the bit rate enough to get more video on your CD-Rs if you have the ability to burn SVCDs (they need MPEG-2 video). I would expect all of these options to result in a loss of quality as MPEG-2 video is lossy (especially at less than DVD bit rates) and MPEG-1 is even worse. Your best bet would be to leave the video as MPEG-2 and just make more SVCDs than you would VCDs. What you want to do is possible, just understand that you will sacrifice video quality to convert to VCD.

Use FlaskMPEG. It will convert mpeg 2 to mpeg 1
