I've been using VirtualDub for all my video needs. I just got a DVD player a month ago and I'm hot on making some VCDs. I've already used TMPGenc and VCDEasy to go from AVIs to playable VCDs.

Here's the BIG question. I can't get anything over 80 minutes on the CD like I keep reading about. I recorded an 120 minute movie and it came out to a little over 1 gig. I ran it through TMPGenc with the NTSC 352x240 template from KVCD and it was still over 1 gig.

What am I doing wrong?
Do I have to get the original file size down first?
If I record straight to MPEG 1 instead of AVI, do I even need TMPGenc?

Thanks.

I've also noticed that if I take a DIVX file that's 400 meg or so and run it through TMPGenc, it comes out about 900 meg. What's up? HELP.

Hi bsbeck,

You have a lot of reading to do
Start here: http://www.kvcd.net/forum/viewforum.php?f=27
Look at the "Sticky" at the top of that thread.
