    the VideoCD format is a standard, just like WAV. On a 700 mb disc you can theoretically fit 70 minutes, tho you rarely see more than 60, just because of disc overhead and other minor files a VCD disc needs to have included on it.

    An afterthought: Some newer stand-alone DVD players support the DIVX and Windows Media formats. If you encode your movies to those formats, you should be able to get 2 hours on a CD-R, tho the quality might be somewhat lessened.

    What ? a 700mb (80min) CDR will hold 80mins of VCD video not 70 mins.

    There are players that play DivX and WMV. Unfortunately teh quality is pretty mediocre in the US at teh moemnt. Give it 6 more months and you should see some pretty good units.

    The biggest problem is people don't want to re-encode their crappy downloaded AVI's to something decent for a settop player to play.
