Default SVCD...making me confuzzled

yeh so my friend tells me about this "SVCD" and how its soo good and that its like dvd and u can play it on ur dvd player but u can burn it onto a normal CD... well this is confusing me because last time i heard.. u cant play normal cd's on your dvd player becuase of some thing about the laser er sumthen like that but yeh... i was just wondering if any of you have heard or used this SVCD video format and actually burnt it onto a normal CD rom and player it on your dvd player... and what program you used to convert it to SVCD video format..

hes right except SVCDis nowhere near dvd quality. most movies made with svcd takes 2 CD's and your dvd player must support VCD/ SVCD format. please read more here:

along w/your cd recorder should have came some sort of cd authoring app. which would allow u to burn vcd and svcds. if not get nero, its not free but it does the job.

I have tupac resurrection on VCD, and it was pretty good quality, and on top of that it was a camcorder record.

Whereas, I have matrix Revolution which was also camcorded in the theatre BUT the quality is horrible.

I think it comes down to the camcorder and how they edited.
They both were 2 cds, But the Tupac was really clear, and no problem with the sound, i admit not as good as the vcd, but if i was given the choice to buy either, and only difference between the two was SVCD qualty and DVD quality, from looking at both of em, id go for the SVCD if it was cheaper.
but the dvd if it was the same price.

Oh yea, Whats the difference between SVCD and VCD?
Cant VCD's play in DVD players that allow it?

spfd you must have terrible eyes the throughput from a DVD is up to 9 times more than SVCD. from what i am understanding from you is that you didn't even compare the SVCD to the exact same movie on DVD. you really have no basis for comparison.

and lets not mention this is a comparison between a SVCD spanned on 2 CD's versus 1 DVD 4.7GB disc. if you still want to know the difference please read the second post
