I love these KVCD templates. The compression to quality ratio is great, it's almost as good as having a standalone divx player. I just stumbled across them a few days ago. I used the 704 by 480 template to put an 84 minute Anime movie on one CD from a very high quality two CD divx DVD rip. It looked like a DVD encoded with the template, the quality was amazing. I would've thought it was a DVD without a doubt if I hadn't known otherwise. The second thing I did was more just a to show I can type thing. It's been a quest of mine to put Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers on one CD. I know, I could spend 30 cents more for another CDR and have much better quality, but I still wanted it on one CD. So I used the LBR kvcd template. The quality was actually very decent. It looked a little worse than a standard VCD. The only scene I got any noticeable macroblocks in was the first fight scene between the Balrog and Gandalf. Even then these macroblocks were barely noticeable, especially from a few feet away. I encoded the video for both in Tmpgenc. Then I used Headac3e for one movie's audio, and tmpg for another one then muxed the streams together. I'm going to use these templates to back up all my Video from now on. The high quality ones are great for really high quality movies, and the low bit rtate ones will be great for TV shows(I capture a lot of series). Thanks for great templates, these are the furthest advancement I've seen in VCD, and will be the best choice in video storage until a standalone divx player comes out.

I've been reading lately about the GOP structure and Quantization matrix. I'd never actually seen a template that altered them until I found yours. I feel I'm almost beggining to understand the GOP structure, I hope I'll be able to try a few modifications of my own on the templates sometime.
