Can't burn mpegSVCD onto CD...error message

  carlos 16:34 08 Apr 2003

Hi. A newbie.... I've edited Digicam footage using Pinaccle Studio DV, then "made movie" into SVCD quality, stored on hard drive. However, when I use EasyCD to burn this onto disc, I get message "......will not work in a VCD player. To make this file video CD compliant, you will need to use an MPEG encoder that supports Video CD encoding" At this stage I'm lost. I thought after I created an MPEG from my digicam footage I could burn this with Easy CD Platinum?? ANy help would be gratefully received

burning and viewing the VCD?

I use Studio and after "Make movie" I wnet to burn the file - was informed that the file was not compliant and may not play - I ignored it and - it works fine!

Failing that re-encode using TMPGEnc

I understand that ECDC Platinum doesn't support creation of svcd( MPEG2).Is this available in ECDC6? I can't see any reference to it, tho. What CD burning software does support sVCD?
Will be grateful for any advice

Nero Burning ROM supports SVCD. Unfortunately one has to purchase the MPEG2 encoder plugin from Nero for it to work. Cost about £11 from their site. This is what I use and it works a treat.

There are other encoders that will do the job. Worth looking at them if you do not have nero. SVCD has specific parameters. For SVCD to work in DVD the correct supporting files need to be added to the disc when it is burnt.

If you're aware of this please excuse my rambling.

Many thanks Brian and crx. I read your info on another thread, Brian , but didn't I do. I have both nero and ECDC5platinum to choose to upgrade. Will do soonest.y_not, I remade the sVCD using TMPGenc but, obvious to me now, it still wouldn't burn using ECDC. Seemed to be faster at making the MPEG than Pinnacle STudio DV, tho'
