hum...those are all VCD's. Didn't know what they were till I looked this up on the net
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 and of course on all computers with a DVD-ROM or CD-ROM drive with the help of a software based decoder / player. It is also possible to use menus and chapters, similiar to DVDs, on a VCD and also simple photo album/slide shows with background audio. The quality of a VCD is about the same as VHS tape based movies.

Suxs that the quality is still crappy.

The quality may be the same as a VHS tape but because it's digital it doesnt degrade like a tape does. Look at video that you've had for over 10 years, it sucks. That doesn't happen with VCD. But if you're going to spend you'r money you might as well get a DVD.:D
