    So it won't fit a DVD film onto a CD then? Or does it compress it somehow?

    SVCD's use MPEG2 compression and can fit about 40mins of video on a CD.

    So you're looking at 2 or more CD's

    Or it's the one that will rip the movie off the DVD to your HD and (with a bit of fichering about) convert it to a Divx;-) file which will fit onto 1 normal cd-r.

    On the subject of Divx;-) i see Scan have started selling a DVD player which supports the format!

    Dvd rippers that use mpeg4 can get quite a lot of 'footage' onto a CD. It depends on the complexity (amount of data) of the original movie and how far you mix your sound track down.
    I played with this and got my copy of twister into a single CD and its very watchable at full screen resolution on the pc.
    You can always choose to spread the resulting film over 2 or more cds to improve quality.

    It quite straightforward to do if you pick the right software and follow the instructions - some of it contains spyware that you should disable at your firewall. Codecs aplenty out there.
