Hi everyone,

How can i convert an Divx movie to miniDVD?? The same with VCD to miniDVD and SVCD to miniDVD?? A Divx movie can only take 1 CD as i recall and miniDVD takes up 15 minutes. How can i fit an Divx movie, VCD or SVCD movie on to 1 or CD's as miniDVD instead of 15 minutes for each CD i make as a miniDVD?? Do u guys understand what i would like to do?? If not, i try my best to explain it more. I need instructions on the conversion and the encoding. If possible i need it specific on the following.

Divx to miniDVD
SVCD to miniDVD
VCD to miniDVD

Please reply back ASAP. Thanks.

Read Doom9's MiniDVD guides. Here's the link:

Note that what you are asking for -- extended time per disc -- can be accomplished by lowering the bitrates of your video and audio streams. Of course, you will not like the resulting quality from these conversions.

MiniDVDs are nothing more than DVDs burned onto CD media.

Then i don't want to do that. I want to play back on my DVD Player. I like SVCD's but though would give miniDVD a try because i don't have a DVD Burner. I have a Samsung DVD Player and DIvx don't play on it. What others would probably would work on my DVD Player besides SVCD, VCD or DVD's??

Look up your Samsung player in the database at www.dvdrhelp.com/dvdplayers to see what capabilities it has.

Only reasonable thing what you can do is to spare some money and buy DVD burner.
Then you can even put 2-3 'DivX movies' (what a hell is that) on one DVD with acceptable quality.

But this thread is on edge to break forum rules.
Even more annoying is fact that it's about asking for something like 'how can I make it cheaper than it normal people does?' :)
