What is VCD?
VCD stands for 'Video Compact Disc' and basically it is a CD that contains moving pictures and sound. If you're familiar with regular audio/music CDs, then you will know what a VCD looks like. A VCD has the capacity to hold up to 74/80 minutes on 650MB/700MB CDs respectively of full-motion video along with quality stereo sound. VCDs use a compression standard called MPEG to store the video and audio. A VCD can be played on almost all standalone DVD Players.

Note: VCDs have "burned-in" non-removable subtitles. VCDs that contain both Chinese and English subtitles will display both languages at the same time. Most, but not all of our VCDs have English subtitles. Before ordering a VCD, be sure to confirm that it has your desired subtitle options.


What are imbedded/burned-in subtitles?
Imbedded/burned subtitles are subtitles that are actually burned into the film print and cannot be removed when viewing.
