VCDs and DVD Players

  lamachan 14:40 06 Sep 2003

When trying out a VCD on a Sony DVD player the picture on screen 'shimmered'. The Sony technical chappie said that this was due to the refresh rate of my computer monitor being different from the refresh rate of the television CRT. Is this a reasonable explanation?

The VCD was produced using Paint Shop Photo Album and plays perfectly on my computert.

i thought that when burning vcd's, specification - would mean that refresh rate was kept within certain torable limits for your standalone, any chance of testing disc in another dvd player?

Unfortunately do not know anyone with a DVD player - all poor people here!!!! Will have a think about your suggestion and try to find someone.
Sony tried the VCD disc out on an LCD TV and it worked perfectly - at £600 for a 15" screen!!
