if you have a good source file, then the quality is good
THIS IS HARDCORE
dunno...even the professionally made (store bought, legal, assumed hardware encoded) have some blockiness cuz they have to fit some much into 2 CDs....
I think standard VCD is a bit better than VHS if you have a good source. you can fit about 60 minutes on a 650meg CD, but upping the data rate to get better quality reduces this time.
horroking you're probably talking about SVCDs.
You get 74 min of Video on a 74-min CD-R, 80 on 80, 90 on 90,... because VCDs are written im Mode2 (like audio-CDs!)
About the Quality: VCD ~ VHS, sometimes a bit better, sometimes a bit worser, but after 10 years, a VCD still look the same, a VHS would be good for the recycle bin!
bobotns, VHS has no future...compact, digital media is the future...but even the DVD may be obsolete in the near future thou ;p
