Default VCD is DEAD!!!!! Long live DivX ;-)

sponsored links

lets look at DivX vs. VCD

DivX is
-Better Quality
-needs Fewer Disks (only one disk needed a lot of the time)

oh and you idiots that say VCD's can play on standalone DVD players. what do you get If you buy
-an AMD 600 base unit 80
-A TV out graphics Card 30
-CD drive 20
and set it to autorun VCD's, SVCD's, DivX's
A Kickass 130 standalone Player

VCD's are easier to trade, you can use your remote control, power consumption is less, dvd player takes less space, SVCD Quality is excellent. DVD player only needs one outlet!! Ha ha

I prefer SVCD, then DivX, then VCD.. so as you can see, I'm all about quality. When standalone DVD/divx players come out, then I think divX will definetely reign supreme.

The experience would also be alot better if you forked out for a sound card. You would also need a HD to install the OS on... Bonus is that you can also play MAME, etc. on ya TV.
