    I keep getting different opinions about it could you fit a movie onto it?

    SVCD is a bit different to VCD in that you choose the bitrate, so you choose how much to fit on to the CD. Generally you can fit about 35-60 mins on a standard SVCD.

    There are other slightly different formats like XSVCD which will enable you to fit more, but their compatibility with DVD players can be pretty limited

    I think TMPGEnc says that 50 minutes is optimal for a 650 Mb disc, so more on a 700 Mb disc. I use 800 Mb discs often, so more again.

    Has anyone got a free, useful SVCD bitrate calculator ?

    Next, what about an alternative to TMPGEnc ? It keeps giving me trouble

    yeah TMPGEnc can be a pain in the ass at times

    Panasonic Encoder is another good one

    I forgot to answer that in my first post..

    Anyway, I have successfully burnt a full movie to SVCD (Blood - The Last Vampire) which was great quality. It was only about 45 minutes long though IIRC.

    I tried a few others that were closer to two hours, and they were absolutely shocking !

    I'm looking for the panasonic encoder.... If anyone has a free link... email me
