    I'm a little confuse with XVCD and XSVCD-
    1.What's the difference between the two?
    2.What is XVCD's resolution and what is XSVCD's resolution.
    3.Are both of them MPEG 2?
    4.Are XVCD's supported by standalone VCD players?

    Note!!! Remember that these are no STANDARDS such as VCD, SVCD or DVD.

    XVCD stands for eXtendedVCD. XVCD has same features as VCD but it is possible to use higher bitrates and higher resolution to get higher video quality. XVCD is basicly everything that uses MPEG1 video, is not within the VCD standard and burnt in "VCD"-Mode.

    XSVCD stands for eXtendedSVCD. XSVCD has same features as SVCD but it is possible to use higher bitrates and higher resolution to get higher video quality. XSVCD is basicly everything that uses MPEG2 video, is not within the SVCD standard and burnt in "SVCD"-Mode.

    A X(S)VCD can be played on

    - XVCD on some standalone VCD Players but not XSVCD at all.
    - Some standalone DVD Players check here for a compatibility list. The main problem why many players won't play X(S)VCD is that it may require faster CD-R/W reading speed in the Player.
    - And of course on all computers with a CD-ROMs/DVD-ROMs with a software VCD/MPG Player.
