How to do VideoCDs with Amiga

Hello all,

How I can do (easly) VCDs on Amiga ??

Trying VCDGear, it says invalid pack type,, then I try to convert a mpg with
ffmpeg (-vcd option), but it is very slow! 80Mb converted in about
7 hours with my 060!! :-(

please, suggestions of what program to use, methods, or suicide forms are welcome ;)

Use VCDImager, it is able to generate VCD 1.1, VCD2, S-VCD and HQ-VCD files.

It creates two files: videocd.bin and videocd.cue. The CUE file has to be edited slightly (should be described in vcdimager's docs), then you can brun the stuff with BurnIt Pro.

I never tried to do that with an 68k Amiga, so I can't say anything about typical converting times. But honestly, what do you expect? Raw CPU power is not exactly a classic Amiga's strong point.

aaaaargh!! VCDImager crash my system!!
I can try to compile myself anyway


Well, maybe are crazy words the attemp to do this with a 68k computer... but I dont have another one :-/
I hope the largest proccess of ffmpeg is because it do a real conversion from mpg to mpg,, instead of adapt it, (because the src and dst are the same), to the vcd bitrate/type... I think, anyway is the first time I try to convert movies, and im not sure how it work )



thx
