Video CD (VCD) Transfers 

ATTENTION:   This is the Video CD (VCD) section.  If you have arrived here by mistake and you really want to order a DVD conversion, please go to our DVD section.

IMPORTANT:
Folks these days no longer convert their video recordings to Video CD (VCD).  These days everyone converts to DVD.  So do we.  Thus, conversions to Video CD (VCD) are no longer offered.  We are keeping this page for "historical" reasons ("those were the days...").  For conversions to DVD, please see our
DVD Transfers Site

BACK THEN WE SAID:

bullet

Video CD's are convenient, and in some countries still very popular!

bullet

Video CD's can be viewed on computers, video CD players and some DVD players. 

bullet

Video CD's are a low-quality format, but they are very convenient: they can be viewed on any computer that has a CD drive.  DVD's are much better quality, but they require a DVD player or a computer with a DVD drive.

bullet

Why settle only for the low quality of a Video CD?  Now, when you order video CD's you will get BOTH: a Video CD (VCD) and a DVD!  

bullet

We produce Video CD's in both NTSC and PAL formats.  (NTSC is the television format used in North America, PAL is used in Europe and much of the world.)  ATTENTION:  we will produce both the Video CD and the DVD in the same television format.

bullet

Your original tape or disc can be NTSC or PAL.  (NTSC is the television format used in North America, PAL is used in Europe and much of the world.)  See below the specific formats accepted. 

bullet

Transfer your videos to CD's (Video CD / VCD) and DVD at the same time!

bullet

NOTE: We only accept one source (one tape or disc) per VCD transfer.

bullet

NEWS: VHS SECAM now accepted as master source!

Formats accepted for transfer to Video CD:

 

    

SECAM master

VHS and VHS-C

SVHS and SVHS-C

 

Please check out our price list.

bullet

The picture quality viewed on a television set is comparable to VHS.  Viewed on a computer screen at ½ size, the picture quality is sharp.

bullet

The Video CD will hold up to 74 minutes of video (with the accompanying audio).

bullet

What a Video CD (VCD) is:

bullet

It is a convenient form of storing videos for playback on computers.  

bullet

Send video clips from your latest vacation to all your friends.  Much cheaper and easier than making multiple VHS tapes.

bullet

Show your sales presentation on your laptop.  No need to carry the TV/VCR with you.

bullet

Transfer your original video tapes to Video CD's and store the master tapes.  Play the Video CD's on a Video CD player or  a compatible DVD player as many times as you want without wearing out or damaging your master tapes.

bullet

Video CD's can be played over and over again.  Ideal for a store display: have a Video CD play in a loop forever, without wear and tear.

bullet

What a Video CD (VCD) is NOT:

 
bullet

A Video CD is NOT a DVD.  It is NOT a high quality video format.  Viewed on a television set the picture looks grainy and at times blocky.  Fast moving  sequences do not run as smooth as regular television.  On a computer screen, at ½ size, the picture quality is satisfactory.

bullet

Why settle only for the low quality of a Video CD?  Now, when you order video CD's you will get BOTH: a Video CD (VCD) and a DVD!  

bullet

Old DVD players do NOT play CD-R's.  These DVD players will NOT play our Video CD's.  Pioneer models are known to correctly play CD-R's.   New DVD players play CD-R's.

 

ATTENTION!     ATTENTION!

Old model DVD players do not play CD-R's.  New model DVD players play CD-R's.

How to tell if your DVD player plays CD-R's:

The most reliable method: send $2 (deposit) for our "DVD Player and Video CD (VCD) Test CD".  We'll send you the CD.  If it plays on your machine, you know all our conversions will play just fine.  If it doesn't play on your machine, you may be able to get a very cheap unit that will play CD-R's.  Take the Test CD  to any retailer and ask them to play the CD.  If it plays, Bingo!  You found your machine.  After you perform the test, return the CD and get your $2 deposit back.

Less reliable methods: look in the DVD player manual (or ask Technical Support of the manufacturer, or the retailer) if the player will play Video CD-R's (that is, Video CD's on CD-R).  Unless you see it printed in the manual, this is less reliable than the "Test CD" because unfortunately some tech support people do not know all the capabilities of their machines.  Even worse, many salespeople have no idea what an Video CD-R is and their answer is a guess (I guess they do, ma'am).  Right. . .

Pioneer DVD Players: we have tested a number of DVD players.  One brand played Video CD-R's across all models: Pioneer.  If you are unable (or unwilling) to go around testing DVD players, get a Pioneer DVD player.  It is a very good brand and all the models we tested played video and audio CD-R's.

- Wear:  Each tape play shortens the life of the tape  
- Machines "eat" tape!

- No wear:  DVD's can be played back an unlimited number of times
