Well, although I have never interpreted it this way, the user "VCD4ever" assumed that the standard spec bitrate on VCDs was a MAX, and that if you had no problem with any possible lowering of quality, you could provide a bitrate lower than that max. Since the BR would be lower, you could conceivably fit 92 minutes.
I don't recommend this. I've always gone under the assumption that the spec reads: CBR @ 1150kbps (IIRC). Some players might accept lower, but I'm pretty sure that some players would NOT.
IIWY, I'd try breaking the title into 2 discs.
I also have to ask...It's almost 2012 - do you really still need VCD???
If you accept to go thru the "non-standard" ways, then yes it's possible to create a 2-hour long VCD
(depends a lot on on the source's compressibility AND on the eye of the beholder, of course) .
However it's quite probable that most/all VCD-only hardware players will solemnly refuse to play such discs
Therefore, either use 2 CD-Rs (as Cornucopia has recommended), or author a DVD.

1. Create a 2 two disk.
2. Create a vcd on DVD or better yet svcd on DVD.
3. Convince your customer that vcd is going the way of the dodo and DVD would better suit their needs.
I don't know about India but at this point in time it would cost my clients more for me to create a VCD than to author a very basic DVD. (Main menu with a play button.) The price difference between printable DVD media and and printable cdr media is negligible. I have often seen cdr media cost more than DVD media, so where is the savings to your budget minded customers?
Not to mention that it appears that fewer and fewer players support vcds. Out of all the blu-ray players and DVD players I currently have, I believe only the Phillips supports VCDs. Things may be different in India though.Murphy's law taught me everything I know.
Have a good one,

Well, if you still have the same VCD/DVD player that worked with those non-standard burns, there's a good likelihood that it will still work.
However, times have changed.
What I'm seeing in most NEW DVD and BD players is that if they support VCD at all (which is becoming quite rare), it's only the files/burns that are fully compliant that work. Which is what we've been saying...
To sum it up: It really doesn't make much sense to sacrifice long-term viability for short-term all-on-one convenience.
I'm not the OP, I only mentioned it as a possible option . I did a few, and they certainly worked on the three players I had at the time!
