Hi
Video CD, or VCD, is a digital movie format. It's basically a primitive version of DVD.
A Video CD is a kind of CD. It looks the same as a music CD or a CD-ROM, except that instead of music or software, it holds movies, using compressed MPEG-1 video. Its resolution is 352x240 (NTSC) or 352x288 (PAL), which is roughly comparable to VHS.
Compared to Video CD, DVD provides much higher resolution (700x480), comparable to laserdisc or even better. DVD movies use MPEG-2 compression, rather thanthe MPEG-1 compression used by Video CDs

I hope this will help you

Mohamed
