On this page I briefly discus some of the more common ways to store your movie(s) on CD's (CDR or CDRW) or DVD's (DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW). At each option, you will find links pointing to pages helping you to do this.

Storing movies, depends strongly on:

  • CODEC used (MPEG1?MPEG2?DivX?)
  • The desired result (for example for PC only or for a DVD player)

Besides CD's and DVD's, there are other media available too, for example playback to a DV tape. However these media are not covered on this website. Maybe somthing for the near future.

Saving your movie ...

Download the DivX codec now!

   
Standard PC CDRom

A DivX movie can be stored on several types of media. Commonly people use a standard computer CDRom format (ISO9660) with or without Joliet extension.

After creating a DivX, copy it to a CDRom just as you would regular computer files. Keep in mind though that a CDRom can only hold so much of data. For more details on burning such a CD, see "How to create a CD yourself" and "How to create a data CDRom".

Naturally, you will be able to find tutorials on WeetHet on how to copy a DVD to a DivX: Introduction, Conversion using DVDx or FlaskMPEG (method 1, method 2, and method 3).

Note: usually the extension ".AVI" is being used for DivX, some people like to use the extension ".DIVX" as well.

 

 

MicroDVD

MicroDVD is an addition to the standard CDRom, made by TiaSoft as a "standard" that allows you to add subtitles, multiple languages and other special, DVD-look-a-like, features. MicroDVD uses DivX movies!

Commonly the subtitles are placed in a regular text file. Read these pages for more details: How to rip subtitles to text based files and How to create your own MicroDVD.

VobSub is capable of playing these subtitles as well but can also deal with the original subtitles. Read these pages to find out more: How to rip subtitles with VobSub? and How to use VobSub in general?

Note: usually the extension ".AVI" is being used for DivX, some people like to use the extension ".DIVX" as well.

 

 

MPEG 1/2 - Suitable for VideoCD, Super VideoCD and DVD

     
 
VCD

VIDEOCD is a format that uses a specific CD-format for storing MPEG-1 movies only in a particular format. Advanced authoring software (yes, Nero can do this too) offers capabilities to make interactive CD's (this is optional!).

More info on how to copy a DVD to VideoCD can be found here: Introduction, Using DVDx, using FlaskMPEG and Cinema Craft Encoder and finally Converting with DVDx and Videoserver plugin.

Nearly all DVD players and PC's (either PowerDVD or the Windows Media Player) are capable of playing these.
The downside is the not to great quality.
One CDRom can hold approximately 1 hour of film.

 

 

 
SVCD

SUPER VIDEOCD is an extension (by Philips) on the VideoCD format, that uses a specific CD-format for storing MPEG-2 movies only in a particular format. Advanced authoring software (yes, Nero can do this too) offers capabilities to make interactive CD's.

More info on how to copy a DVD to Super VideoCD can be found here: Introduction, Using DVDx, using FlaskMPEG and Cinema Craft Encoder and finally Converting with DVDx and Videoserver plugin.

Most, but not all, DVD players and PC's (for example using PowerDVD) are capable of playing these.
It offers an excellent image quality.
One CDRom can hold approximately 1 hour of film.

 

 

 
XVCD

EXTENDED VIDEOCD is an, non official, extension on the VideoCD or Super VideoCD format, that uses a specific CD-format for storing either MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 movies only in a particular format. Most authoring tools do not support this, since the standard is not clearly defined.

Creating these XVCD's is basically the same as creating VideoCD and Super VideoCD's.

Nearly all DVD players cannot play these discs! PowerDVD most likely will play these files, however sometimes not by using it's own interface (install PowerDVD and use Windows Media Player for playback).
It can offer an excellent image quality - it depends on your settings.
Since the format is rather non-standard, it's hard too say how much will fit on a single CDRom.

 

 

 
Data CDRom

ISO 9660 is basically the trick where you store any MPEG file (MPEG1, MPEG2, DivX) on a standard computer-data CDRom. For more details on burning such a CD, see "How to create a CD yourself" and "How to create a data CDRom".

Creating simple MPG/MPEG files is done the sameway you create a VideoCD or Super VideoCD.

Downside: very few DVD players are capable of playing these, most PC play them just fine.

Note: Most users use the extension ".MPG" or ".MPEG" for their MPEG1 or MPEG2 files.

 

 

 
DVD recoradble

DVD-R(W) or DVD+R(W) are new upcoming media of storing movies. Due to the lack of such a DVD-writer I cannot tell you too much about it (yet).

The only thing I do know (by reading articles): DVD+RW is the way to go for computer data. DVD-R seems to be the way to go for storing movies ...
Currently there are no writers that support both formats ... Please mail me if you can help me on this subject!

Note: the first DVD writer that can handle both DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW has appeared on the market. This writer is being produced by Sony - more models will follow.
