Dear videolib colleagues,
Do any of you have experience with VCDs?
One of our professors has a grant which is providing us with video from
China. The Chinese contact writes "quite a lot of new films published in VCD
forms, no videotape anymore. We can get some VCDs of new films, but there is
the system problem now, all VCDs published in China are in PAL system. So you
want me to buy a VCD machine (made in China) for you?"
We found an article of Frequently Asked Questions on video CDs on the web
(www.geocities.com/Athens/Forum/2496/vcdfaq.html) so we now are a little more
knowledgeable. Now we have to decide if we want to add this video format; so if
you has any words of wisdom to offer, I'd appreciate hearing from you.
Thanks, in advance.
