I've read and I've read and I've tried and I've tried.

I can't get the 90 to 120 minute video files on one VCD. The file size is always greater than 800 MB.

I've read all the online guides and followed the directions step by step and it still is too big.

Someone, please give me a step by step on what I need to do.

I'm recording from a VHS VCR at 352x240 with about 95 minutes.

If my original mpeg file is greater than 800 MB, can I reduce the size under 800 MB by adjusting the video and audio bitrates?

Isn't this what the templates are supposed to do? I can't seem to make the templates alter the size by very much.

Someone throw me a bone. PLEASE.

Hi bsbeck,

You must read the section on file size prediction. If you're converting from VHS, and you want the best quality on a CD, you also need to do "Inverse Telecine" on your source ( If your tapes are movies ). This is an advanced topic. Check the AviSynth section. The templates as posted, are just a basic framework. You can't expect to put 90 or 120 minutes with them with the default CQ_VBR values. Sometimes you will, sometimes you won't. If you use file size prediction, then you always will Check the FAQ here: http://www.kvcd.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=68 and follow the suggested links.

You'll also want to smooth quite heavily to get rid of as much noise as possible, since VHS is a pretty noisy source.

I recommend FluxSmooth .
