VCD (Video Compact Disc) is a CD that contains moving pictures and sound. VCD share many similarities with regular audio/music CDs. A VCD can hold up to 74/80 minutes on 650MB/700MB CDs respectively of full-motion video along with quality stereo sound. VCDs use a compression standard called MPEG to store the video and audio. A VCD can be played on almost all standalone DVD Players and on all computers with a DVD-ROM or CD-ROM drive with the help of a software based decoder / player(Such as, DVD X Player, DVD Decoder). It is also possible to use menus and chapters, similiar to DVDs, on a VCD and also simple photo album/slide shows with background audio. The quality of a superior VCD is about the same as a VHS tape based movie but VCD is usually a bit more blurry. For better quality, you make have to choose SVCD,CVD or DVD or Blu-ray DVD.
