    Nero is not the best for encoding vcd.

    download tmpgenc and use this to produce your vcd mpeg, then use nero to burn.

    It is free to use for mpeg1 including vcd and offers many settings to help get the best quality.

    There are also tutorials on the net for this app, so learning the best way to use it should not be a problem.

    If you have a mini-DV camcorder, capture using firewire to a DV-AVI file and then convert with tmpgenc and this will give you much better results.

    Consider authoring a DVD aswell because there may be vcd playback problems with some players. Keep a copy of the MPEG1 version on cd so if there is no player available, then it will be possile to playback in a PC or mac.

    Use NTSC format because most every PAL player will play NTSC anyway.
