Thread: Burn a VCD as a regular DVD?

    Default Burn a VCD as a regular DVD?

    I have a VCD in the form of a .bin and .cue file. I know how to burn them to a CD-R and play it as a regular VCD, but I want to burn it to a DVD so it can be just like a regular DVD movie. I don't want it to be a VCD, I want it to be a DVD video. How can I go about doing this?

    I am 99% certain that the only way to make playable dvds is to use an authouring program.

    I use sony dvd architect but I think there are many cheaper options - nero for example, you might even already have it.

    You can get around reauthouring if your DVD player supports MPEG formats. Since your video (I assume) is playable in VCD it must conform to the following specifications:

    1) the video file has been encoded in "MPEG-1" format
    2) the video portion is 352 x 240 @ 29.97 HZ or 352 X 240 @ 23.976 HZ (NTSC) or 352 x 288 @ 25 HZ(PAL)
    3) the audio portion is 44.1KHZ stereo @ 224 Kbits per second

    If these requirements have been met then NERO will put this into a "VIDEO_TS" folder and burn it onto a DVD. I play MPEGS in this fashion all the time on my DVD player
