"Audio VCD" to get 3 hrs of music on a CD

I saw this at www.vcdhelp.com the other day, and it's a great idea for those of us with HT setups that won't play MP3 but CAN play VCD... it just plays the compressed audio with a blank video channel. it seems so obvious, but i had never thought of doing it before.

you can get a template for TMPGEnc here:


the template is "Kevin's Audio VCD Template" and if you've played with VCDs before, this will probably make sense... and even if you haven't, you can probably spend 10-15 minutes on vcdhelp and figure out what to do. (the zip file of the template also has instructions)

i made a disc that works great on a pioneer dv-333, if your player supports XVCD or VCD and CDR... i'd bet it will work like a charm :>

I just tried this, and it's pretty sweet. Got an entire Dave Matthews Band concert on one CD (usually takes 3).

Worst part was waiting for TMPEG to encode everything. (Took an hour for three hours of music.)
