VCDEasy is a VideoCDs (VCD/SVCD) authoring tool that allows you to play/watch your videos (from DV camcorder, DivX, DVD,...), your pictures (from digital camera, scanner,...) and your audio files (music, audio comments,...) directly on most of the home DVD players, without having to buy a DVD Writer and DVD discs. A VideoCD ("Video Compact Disc") is stored on a CD (CD-R or CD-RW)... a cheap way to make DVD-like discs at home!
Invented by Philips, the VCD is born before the DVD. It did not have a big commercial success around the world because 2 CDs were needed to store one 1H30 film. But now, VCD is very popular because it is a cheap way to make at home DVD like discs. As opposed to a DivX CD, a VCD can be played on almost all home DVD players, i.e watched on a TV. No need to have a computer, no need to configure it to play DivX films... Watching a VideoCD is as simple as watching a DVD! The VideoCD, for example, is a really great solution to share videos and pictures with familly and friends, they only need a DVD Player and a TV!
All you need to do is to provide VCDEasy with MPEG files compliant with the VideoCD specifications (an MPEG pictures encoder is already included into VCDEasy, use the excellent Audio2VCD to encode your audio only files, and use for example the excellent TMPGEnc encode to MPEG your videos). 'Novice' users can simply select (VideoCD ready) MPEG files and click the 'go' button, while 'advanced' users can configure/use almost all aspects of the VideoCD specifications (PlayBack Control based interactivity, Chapters, Menus support, CD-i support...).
