Thread: Question about KVCD's

    Default Question about KVCD's

    I recently aquired a .bin file which was said to be a 'kvcd'. I have watched the file by mounting it on my harddrive using Daemon Tools.

    The file is approx. 800mb big and I was wondering if it should fit on to a regular CD. All the CD's i've ever had have been smaller than 800mb.

    I would like to know if it should fit on to a normal CD so that I can view the file on my standalone DVD player and watch it on TV. If not, can I get 800mb CD's?

    Also, is it possible to rip the file off the DVD so that it is .mpg format and then put many .mpg files on to a DVD and watch each one individually on a TV (just to save space on the DVD). I think I saw a sticky about something like this before i posted so I shall have a read.

    Thanks in advance.

    burn as a vcd. ignore non-standard crap. 800mb=80min vcd.

    as for .bin>.mpg, vcdgear.

    Taking me back a bit this. But if I remember correctly a bin file is associateed with CDG karaoke, typically when burned to VCD format.

    I can't recall if the video file is embedded in the BIN or not or whether it is just hidden. I think it is the former. If that is the case you may have difficulty using standard ripping techniques.

    Why not try some of the Karaoke Forums to see if they can advise.

    Your burning app should see the bin as an image and burn the contents.

    KVCD is an assortment of special set-ups for TMPEnc to make VCD mpegs that meet a certain need. Depending on what's needed the resulting file can have superior video quality or extra-length play-time or anything in between. The bad part is some DVD players won't recognize the resulting files since they don't fit into the standard settings.

    ish.

    a .bin and .cue fileset are just binary images of a cd, and the cue file to tell the burning app the layout of the cd. they're not exclusive to cd+g, but they're used for them as well.
