converting movie file to vcd
don't know if this is the correct place to ask this question.
if it's not, mods pls move to appropriate section thanks.
i have a minolta z1 and i took a video clip with it (quicktime MOV format).
now i want to transfer this clip to a vcd-r to watch on a normal vcd player.
(just insert the vcd-r and it'll play the clip like a normal vcd.)
may i know how can i do it?
which software is needed?
thanks for the help.

If you use a Mac, you can try using the software iVCD.

try using vcd format, as some dvd players might not be able to play svcd format.

My XMS player claims SVCD support but it doesn't seem to work. It will play VCDs I make my self. Most of the time.

With video's out of the likes of a Minolta Z1, even transcoding to VCD MPEG1 format is over doing it. Transcoding to MPEG2 for SVCD/DVD seems a waste of time given the lack of quality in the input file in the first place.
