Convert VCD to WMV
VCD to WMV Conversion Software converts VCD files to WMV.
The software is an easy to use and professional video converter. VCD
to WMV Conversion Software could choose the best fit bit rate automatically when
converting file, so that the converter will keep original video and audio quality.
And, size of outputted file is acceptable. You could also customize video size,
frame rate, and bit rate. The software also supports common file format such as
DivX, iRiver, WebM, iPod, PSP, MPG / MPEG, DV, M4V, etc. It could convert MPG to 3G2, Y4M to iPhone, M4V to WMV, MP2 to WebM, VID to 3G2, VOB to OGM, and so on.
VCD to WMV Conversion Software supports batch conversion
that enables you convert bulk VCD files to WMV at a time. The software is
full compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000.
What is VCD?
Video CD (abbreviated as VCD, and also known as View CD,
Compact Disc digital video) is a standard digital format for storing video
on a Compact Disc. VCDs are playable in dedicated VCD players, most modern DVD-Video
players, personal computers, and some video game consoles.
The VCD standard was created in 1993 by Sony, Philips, Matsushita, and JVC
and is referred to as the White Book standard.
In a VCD, the audio and video streams are multiplexed in an MPEG-PS container.
- Codec: MPEG-1
- NTSC: 352x240
- PAL/SECAM: 352x288
- Aspect Ratio:
- NTSC: 107:80 (0.3% difference from 4:3)
- PAL/SECAM: 4:3
- NTSC: 29.97 or 23.976 frames per second
- PAL/SECAM: 25 frames per second
- Bitrate: 1,150 kilobits per second
- Rate Control: constant bitrate
- Codec: MPEG-1 Audio Layer II
- Frequency: 44,100 hertz (44.1 kHz)
- Output: Dual channel or stereo
- Bitrate: 224 kilobits per second
- Rate Control: Constant bitrate
What is WMV?
Windows Media Video (WMV) is a compressed video file format for several proprietary
codecs developed by Microsoft. The original codec, known as WMV, was originally
designed for Internet streaming applications, as a competitor to RealVideo. The
other codecs, such as WMV Screen and WMV Image, cater for specialized content.
Through standardization from the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers
(SMPTE), WMV has gained adoption for physical-delivery formats such as HD DVD
and Blu-ray Disc.
A WMV file is in most circumstances encapsulated in the Advanced Systems Format
(ASF) container format. The file extension .WMV typically describes ASF files
that use Windows Media Video codecs. The audio codec used in conjunction with
Windows Media Video is typically some version of Windows Media Audio, or in rarer
cases, the deprecated Sipro ACELP.net audio codec. Microsoft recommends that ASF
files containing non-Windows Media codecs use the generic .ASF file extension.
The ASF container can optionally support digital rights management using a
combination of elliptic curve cryptography key exchange, DES block cipher, a custom
block cipher, RC4 stream cipher and the SHA-1 hashing function.
Although WMV is generally packed into the ASF container format, it can also
be put into the AVI or Matroska container format. The resulting files have the
.AVI and .MKV file extensions, respectively. WMV can be stored in an AVI file
when using the WMV 9 Video Compression Manager (VCM) codec implementation. Another
common way to store WMV in an AVI file is to use the VirtualDub encoder.
Windows Media Video (WMV) is the most recognized video format within the WMV
family. Usage of the term WMV often refers to the Microsoft Windows Media Video
codec only. Its main competitors are MPEG-4 AVC, AVS, RealVideo, DivX, and Xvid.
The first version of the codec, WMV 7, was introduced in 1999, and was built upon
Microsoft's implementation of MPEG-4 Part 2. Continued proprietary development
led to newer versions of the codec, but the bit stream syntax was not frozen until
WMV 9. While all versions of WMV support variable bit rate, average bit rate,
and constant bit rate, WMV 9 introduced several important features including native
support for interlaced video, non-square pixels, and frame interpolation. WMV
9 also introduced a new profile titled Windows Media Video 9 Professional, which
is activated automatically whenever the video resolution exceeds 300,000 pixels
(e.g., 528x576, 640x480 or 768x432 and beyond) and the bitrate 1000 kbit/s. It
is targeted towards high-definition video content, at resolutions such as 720p
