    That is correct! 2.20Gb is how much DIVX or XVID compression is. You'd need to split that file and sacrifice some quality to make it it fit on to 2 VCD disks. Anything less will yield poor quality.

    I haven't done it yet, takes too much time to try to make it work. Usually the audio and video will be out of sync. Can take up to 12 or even 24 hours to convert.

    So far, it ain't worth the effort.

    If you have TV output, then you can use a VHS tape and copy directly from PC to VCR.

    In America, you need to convert that AVI to a MPEG-1 at 325X240 NTSC. In Europe, you have to use PAL instead of NTSC.

    Now you have a huge 2.20GB movie. You need to split that correctly with software (that I have no idea what to use, since I gave up on this project years ago). Split it into 4 files with correct MPEG-1 format then burn 4 VCD disks from those. Use NERO or ROXIO. Both make VCDs. I like NERO, because you can create titles and menus.

    Chances are, your file will never convert correctly due to the unstable nature of DIVX or XVID compression. There will be errors or lack of bites for it to work. If it does work, the chances are that your audio will be way off.

    A lot of programs will do the job, but will save the converted files as two seperate files. One audio, the other video. Then you have to join them together.

    It is all a pain in the ass. Its going to take several days for you to re-rip the AVI to VCD.

    Here is the guide...

    Don't worry about the size of the file. As long as it's in mpeg format and it's less than 80 minutes of video, it'll fit on a standard 700MB disc.
