    Is there any freeware/shareware/software out there to create your own Video CDs? (or Super Video CDs?)
    What is involved?
    I finally got with the 90's and bought a CD-RW and was interested in putting my home videos on VCD.
    Any input is appreciated.

    It doesn't matter how you get there if you don't know where you're going.

    VCDHelp is your friend.
    Homemade VCDs are more trouble than you would expect, simply because it's almost a crapshoot getting a DVD player that a)plays VCDs and b)reads CD-Rs and CD-RWs.
    If you've got a DVD player that does both, then you are good to go.

    Yeah, I just found that website after I sent the post. It seems to be a pretty archaic process converting video to VCD.
    I wonder, is there a way to utilize my current inputs (ie, serial port/audio line in) to capture a signal and convert it to MPEG video? I just want to take the occasional home movie and save it on a CD rather than VHS tape for obvious reasons.
    Hmmm.... I will have to do a little more research.
    Thanks.
