Default VCD can't play on dvd player - ok on PC

sponsored links
I'm new to the VCD world so hopefully this won't be a too basic of a question...

I have a VCD that plays fine on my PC but when I play it on my home DVD players (I have two) I either get a lot of video noise like wierd pixelations or, on my other player, the sound is distorted - cuts in and out. The players display the VCD as "VCD 2.0".

I have another commercially made VCD that plays fine on both home DVD players so I'm assuming it either must be a bad VCD disk I have or possibly a bad copy. The VCD's surface that doesn't work is black in color (vs the typical silver) if that has anything to do with it.

Don't know too much about this but is their any chance it was a Super VCD? I have a SVCD and plays fine on my dvd player but I went to my grandmas to play it and her DVD player couldn't handle it, only the VCD's. It video and sound would skip. Don't know if this is your problem too though.

Well if it says VCD 2.0 then it is not a SVCD. It could be a SVCD with a patched header though I guess.

Sounds to me like a media issue though. I would try reburning it onto different media, possbily at a slower speed to.
