A VHS-resolution standard for storing digital video on an ordinary CD. VideoCDs use MPEG1 compression in PAL or NTSC resolution and are in ISO Mode 2 (CD-XA) format. VideoCDs are popular in Asia where VideoCD players are as common as VCRs in the USA. Prior to divx, this was a very popular format for DVD pirates to distribute ripped DVDs in. Many DVD players, such as the Apex AD-600A, are able to play VideoCDs. Microsoft ActiveMovie and Apple QuickTime also include an MPEG player that allows you to view VideoCDs on your computer.
