    It's really just an XVCD (e.g., non-standard bitrates and dimensions) named after someone with a K in his name who spent a lot of time tweaking things like GOP. His information is generally useful, in that it can save you some time experimenting about what if; but I think he eventually began charging a small fee for that information.

    And the claims of three movies to a DVD with no visible quality loss are utter bollocks. Even the sample clip provided had more artifacts than an average Divx download.

    In short, it is technique that may have been valid when discs were expensive, or to fit a full 90 minutes into a VCD, but the quality is not what is claimed, and you are better off putting one movie to a disc, or splitting the film, if quality means anything to you at all.

    Perhaps you can - If the "K" doesn't make the VCD too non commpliant, it may work, as regular VCD video is also DVD compliant. Try authoring the mpg with TMPGEnc DVD Author.
