Use AVI synth to frame serve the D2V file into Virtual Dub. First downsample and convert the audio from AC3 to a VBR mp3, then calculate the video bitrate based on the remaining space on the CD. Encode the video in Virtual Dub and mux with the mp3 in Nandub.

You could convert the mpeg file, but you would be much better off converting straight from the d2v file.

The site is called VCD help, so what do you except.. VCD = MPG.

The AVI file should be either be 700mb or 1400mbs depending on whether you go for 1 or 2 CDs. But it could be almost any size you want it to be.

You might want to use Gordian Knot to calculate the res, bitrate. etc. Also you have to decide which codecs you want to use... DivX3,4,5,Xvideo, etc. for video...

If you want the smallest file size then you should consider using an OGG media steam instead of an AVI.

AVI files, etc. however will not play on a stand alone, unlike VCDs.
