VCDImager is a small GNU
program by Herbert Valerio Riedel (aka HVR), that can make VCD
images from standard MPEG
These images are written in the BIN/CUE image file format, which can be burned on CDs using cdrdao
or most other modern CD burning program. These CDs can then be played in standalone VCD players (use mostly in Asia
), VCD/SVCD-compliant DVD
players, or using MPEG/MPEG2 software players on your computer.
VCDImager is splitted into a backend libary and a frontend, with the library fully portable. It's easy to compile it on your favourite platform, and use the CLI or the GTK+ frontend.
Some people might claim that this tool can only be used to pirate movies, but actually it's also very useful to the home-video producer.
