Has anyone tried or know if the RES will play VCDs? VCDs are VideoCDs that are encoded and burned to CD-R (or CD-RW) that most new DVD players can display.

Well, you inspired me to try. I'd been meaning to getting around to testing the VCD ability of this new computer, and I did have success, after installing a new program I got a few weeks ago. I just did a quick 1 min. of video to a cd-r and it PLAYED fine on the RES - quality was noticably worse than the dvd-r, but it was definitly watchable.Do you have the ability to make a VCD?
No I didn't, until I got a notice of reply this morning. My email has been wonky the past couple of weeks.AJA said:Just wanted to ask if you saw my reply below about VCD's working in the RES.
While encoding can make a difference, bitrate is not the culprit.I imagine that the quality issues you are seeing are because of the encoding. There are different rates and qualities you can select making the quality better or worse.
It's possible that condensation gets into the player or on the discs. This will have an effect. Bringing a warm disc into a cold car, cold disc into a warm player, etc.ShorePilot said:omgjsc wrote:
We had no problems playing VCD's (recorded on CD-R's) in our EXL-RES until it started getting colder a few weeks ago, can the cold impare the reading ability of our DVD players? (Although even after the car has warmed up inside they still won't work.)
They worked fine from July to late Nov. now the same VCD's get ejected just like yours, does anyone have any idea why that would suddenly be happening??
