what software for conversion of different formats to VCD?

    I'm new to the VCD format, but I have a DVD-RW drive and a new DVD
    Player for my home theatre system that plays MP3, WMA, VCD, DVD-R, DVD-
    RW, etc....

    Over the years I have moved a lot of home movies of the kids to avi and
    mpeg formats. The RecordNowDX software that I have will only make VCD's
    out of mpeg format files that are of a specific type and most of my
    files don't match that format.

    As I don't have any software that will convert from MPEG/AVI to the
    standard format I need to burn VCD's I'm open to suggestions.

    I would like to purchase the application as cheaply as possible, it does
    not have to build/burn the VCD format, only allow me to take any
    MPEG/AVI and convert it to MPEG that I can use the CD burning software
    to make VCD's.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    TMPGENC! - www.tmpgenc.com Register for mpg2 conversions but VCD will work
    otherwise. Also can handle AVI & MOV files.
    I recommend the KVCD formats, nonstandard but if your DVD player can handle
    them try it. I can get 90mins+ DVD 720x480 res on a 800MB VCD.
    Use VCDeasy www.vcdeasy.org to author the files to CDs. Works with the
    nonstandard file types.

    Seems VCDeasy has gone shareware, to bad but worth the $15.00. Try the last
    freeware version here.
