Lightbulb-2 VCD on 4,7 DVD-R

Hey! i was wondering. If you have 4 movies in VCD, 1.2gig 0.9gig 1.1gig and 1.0gig, is it possible to make a Large VCD on DVD-R 4,7gig! I mean like with a menu where you select movie?

I was wondering about this cause it could be outrageous cool

Has anyone ever tried this. And did it work. And How To?

Hi.

Generally YES! But remember: DVD standard means 720x480 (NTSC) or 720x576 (PAL). Therefore you normally have to rerender your movies to get these resolutions.
Any authoring-prog (my favorite: DVD Architect) will do this for you and you can also build up your own menue to select each single movie with your remote-control.

If you DON'T want your movies to be rerendered, you should use DVD Patcher.
You patch your entire movies to the resolution, your authoring-prog will use (see on top of this post). After authoring is done you patch the resulting vob-files (all) back to the original resolution.

Finally burning on DVD and: enjoy!

Default Hehe! Thanx

But it doesnt answer my question. Thanx though! that info can maybe be used in the future projects! The problem is that i have these VCD clips from my honeymoon in VCD MPEG Format in a size of total around 4.4GIG! Is it possible to make such big an VCD image and burn it to a DVD-R for succesfully viewing on a table standalone dvd player which supports VCD and DVD-R! TIA!

Not directly!

DVD's use two folders (AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS) to be played on your standalone-player.
If you merge your movies together to one big movie and burn this movie direct to a DVD, your player will show you --- nothing!

Without authoring it isn't possible.

Glad to help

The only patcher I know of is one for the svcd standard, if you want it I can give you an address for it (svcd to dvd).

Can you give me the link where you found out about a "dvd patcher"?

Thanks for the link, it appears however that it will function only for MPEG-2 files, not MPEG-1 (VCD).

Default Serious Problems

Okay now ive tried this:

I tried encoding en normal 7xxx DVD Vob format
I tried encoding normal and then patch it with DVD Patcher
I have tried burning as VCD and DVD

Either way my DVD Player selects Chapter 0 and says illegal input.
the specs for my Player is
DVD, MP3, VCD, SVCD, XSVCD, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW.

someone has an answer for this? TIA!

You don't need to 'patch' VCDs, only SVCDs. VCDs resolution is already DVD compliant.

YES

Assuming that you have 4 x 1GB MPGs with a horizontal resolution of 352 and 48KHz mpeg 1 layer 2... all you need to do is author your dvd (collate mpgs, add menus or whatever) & burn to DVDR. No reencoding is required. Your choice of authoring software is your only issue.
