Thank you very much for your guide: it's great
Only a problem: when I try to burn with VcdEasy a (S)VCD greater than 700 Mb (on a 700 Mb support) but whose dimension are still in the parameters for 1 (S)Vcd it doesn't burn.
I have to reduce the file <= 700 Mb, while when I burn the same file (> 700 Mb) with Nero I have a lot of remaining space (but without chapters).
I enabled overburning, but the question isn't that.
There is a solution?
Thanks a lot

You have an "autopadding" problem that is "bloating" your MPEG file.
If you search for "autopadding" and "bloating" you will find many topics on this problem.
To fix, you will have to remultiplex your MPEG (e.g., with bbMPEG on the SVCD setting).
First of thanks for the awsome guide!
Just one problem, i have made mpeg stills for each chapter in my svcd for the purpose of being able to press next through chapter stills and then when i reach the still for the chapter i want to view press play and start the film at that chapter, is it me or isn't that possible? i have made one where i'm taken back to the main menu when i press play and one where nothing happens when i press play.
Do i make sense at all?

I suggest, however, that you use VCDEasy to make the chapters.
Hey, now it's not often I've come across guides that have just about all the answers I need! Thanx gonz0, got all my menus and chapters working well with this one. I have a small querie tho; being able to interact menus with chapters using basic DVD-player controls, i was wondering if it is possible to select a chapter from the menu using the mouse-pointer on a PC (clicking on a small menu-area covering a specific pic or text) as well, or if you could direct me to a possible guide I may have missed out on this issue?
first I wanna say that your guide is great. Got all done by first time.
To make my menus better I tryied to make mpeg-Files as menu-choice-chapters. I mean e.g. "menu 1 to 4" is not a still but a 40 sec during mpeg-File. I re-assigned the first 4 chapters of the main movie to the key 1 to 4 of the "menu 1 to 4"-mpeg. And so on for the other menus and chapters.
All the menu files work fine and of course also the main movie. But now the Problem: During each movie-file (of course then also the menu-Movies) I cannot select any number-key! Forward, back, return and standard are working fine, but each time I press a number to select a chapter in the chapter-selection menu-mpeg there is no responding! The same during the main movie: I cannot select a next or previous chapter by number keys, only by pushing next or forward on my remote. That is not so worrying, but that i cannot choose any chapter during the play of the menu-files is not so god.
Do you know sommething about it. Or it is a DVD-Player-problem?
Thanks a lot in advance.
my svcd worked just fine with this guide, but i got just one problem:
i´m trying to put trailers. i made the mpeg still with numbers to be pushed and choose the trailer (more than one), but the problem is that when i push the number, nothing happens! instead of that, the trailer always (i burned more than one svcd) comes in the end of the movie. and if i have more than one trailer, just the first one comes along.
i did everything ok in the interactivity page as the guide tell us, like putting each trailer with its numeric number in the right side box (with "overwright this default assingment" checked). i did exactly what i did for chapters and "insert another cd" sigh in the end of the movie. all of that worked, but not the trailers...
what the hell am i doing wrong?

Open it in any txt viewer, notepad or wordpad will do. Copy and paste the text into the post, highlight it, and hit the Code button like Vitualis suggested.
BTW, if anyone is interested, my guide shows a little more of the steps leading up to VCDEasy, such as getting and editing your menu's.
You may want to use both guides in conjunction if your source is a DVD.
ok, i opened it with wordpad, and here it is (let me know if something goes wrong):
1 1 0 LIFE_OR_SOMETHING_LIKE_IT_PART_1 CD-RTOS CD-BRIDGE VCDEASY_V112 160.110 417.284 729.262 999.665 1187.937 1304.003 1895.927 2081.696 2529.944 2934.131 1 -1 1 0 1 -1 1 -1 1 -1 1 -1 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 6
let me know what you think! (my problem is that when i push the trailer button in the main menu (in this case number 2), nothing happens. the trailer just comes at the end of the movie.)
Hi, that was a really helpful guide.
i need some guidance i wonder if u can help me. I have a project to do, i need to make presentations in macromedia flash in swf files. the same presentation need to be converted to vcd format too, playable on a standalone vcd player. the client wants the cd to be viewed as a vcd on a vcd player and also as a flash presentation on a computer. on the computer it will display as an interactive exe file. however both formats of the presentation (vcd and flash) have to be stored on the same cd. the same single cd can be used to watch as a vcd on a player and as a flash presentation on a computer. how do i go about doing it or what kinda software do i use?
