I got this from another board, not sure if its been posted here. Anyways, this is a trick to make SVCD's play on a non SVCD playing DVD player. I know, I know, Yours should allready play them, but it doesnt hurt to try this try....

you can make the svcd play on your dvd if your dvd player will play xvcds

to do this use TMPGenc and nero

exctract the mpg file from the bin and cue

do the following:

1 goto file/MPEG tools
2 select 'simple multiplex'
3 select type 'MPEG-1 Video-CD'
4 video input 'YOUR MPEG FILE'
6 run

note: make sure that when you insert your file into the 'video input' that the select type option doesn't spring to 'MPEG2 program'. If it does then click 'MPEG-1 Video-CD' again.

Next step:

Start NERO (tested with version using template Video-cd (you need to turn off the standard compliant option, but as all your files have now a VCD header they should be able to fool NERO into thinking they are really VCD files), add files and then burn.
I hope it works for you.
