    Do you want a VCD or an SVCD?

    Is your file MPEG-1 or MPEG-2?

    Does it conform to the VCD and/or SVCD specs? (resolution, bitrate, sound format etc.)

    TMPGEnc is a good program to use to make sure your MPEG file is compliant. It has built-in templates for VCD, SVCD, DVD, etc.

    Also, make sure you prepare a disc that your equipment is actually able to play. Some players won't play VCD or SVCD, one or the other or both. Some players will play a pressed VCD but not a burnt one.

    The "Players list" at www.videohelp.com will help you with that last question.

    Give me some more info and I will be happy to help you out.
