    Long ago, I heard that video could be written to CDs. And I began searching for the secret with my AOL browser. Luck would have it that I ended up here.

    It is funny, I have heard many salesmen at Comp-USA and other places reccomend this site to their customers. (at least six times by now) And I reccomend it to everyone I know with ANY kind of computer questions.

    Thanks to all that contribute!
    IS IT SUPPOSED TO SMOKE LIKE THAT?

  4. Dunno. But I was interested in VCD. Soon it became a hobby. From there it was like Topsy, it just growed.

    I found this great website by searching in google on how to make VCD's. Back then it was called VCDHELP.COM. I eventually made my way into the DVD stuff. Thanks Baldrick for this great site and to all the other members who've helped me back then when I was a !!!!

    MaximumPc I think. In any case, a great resource because of all the knowledgeable people here. I couldn't have finished many of the projects I got into without the problem solvers who cruise this forum.

    I know I can't put my finger on it for sure, but..

    I voted, "Through a link on another website" but I can't be 100%
    sure, though I've seen vcdhelp URL posted in places like DigitalDigest
    and a few others.. whereever that tool was, "dvdgenie" I think, is
    where I got my start here at vcdhelp. This app could hack your software
    dvd player's feature and things, which I found through some search engine,
    back in the Yahoo days At the same time, I was also searching
    for any information on VCD and MPEG.
    .
    or.., I think it might of ben search engine too, I'm just not sure

    I do remember finding you guys some time in Mid or Late 2000 on account
    of that tool I think, ..but I didn't register until March 2001

    The good old VCD days, hehe.. yeah !!

    -vhelp 3428
    EDITED.. had to get my fact straight, based on my fading memory.

    I had an HP640 and I remember reading something about VCDin one of it's hepl menus. The thought of putting video on a disk that could be read on most DVD players really "did" it for me - so I set about trying to learn how. One search and you end up here. After that, you realize you don't need to be anywhere else if you want all the info. Right about that time the DVD writers were coming out and I've had a ball. EVERYTHING that I couldn't learn from playing with the programs cane from this site. The people here are the greatest!!!

    Hi,

    I'm sure it was when divx was first making big news the same way napster was. I did a yahoo search on dvd to divx and shortly found my way here. That was severaly years ago. I have been here ever since

    can't exactly remember either...
    i know it had something to do with hacking the region code for my shiny new DVD player (about 4 or 5 years ago?).
    it was www.vcdhelp.com at that time
    not long after that I started to make VCD's and wouldn't have been able to do it without this site!

    I was a complete noob... searching at Yahoo! for some tips on how to make a VCD.

    I remember back then I was able to post on the forum without even need to register in early 2002. Some helpful chap by the name of Ray Smith from Australia gave me some pointers on AVI_IO and PicVideo.. and the rest was history !

    Like the rest here, I cant remember either. Most probably through yahoo search, when looking for a tool for backing up my dvds. I do remember buying my dvd writer for 300 ($520) at the time. They are really expensive compared to what the prices have dropped to now.

    I think I registered a few months after finding this site.

    The same with me. I lurked here a couple years before signing up. In fact, I signed up once when it was VCDhelp.com and forgot my username/password
    Then after a long time I registered again under this nickname.
