    To be somewhat more precise, writing is only supported as far as copying is
    concerned. And yes, cdrdao (CDR disk at once) can copy VCD format. If anyone
    knows of a pssibility to master a VCD, please let me know!
    I would very much like to toast some MPEG-I movies I have got to a VCD which
    would also enable standalone VCD players to play them without the need for a
    computer beeing turned on (OK actually the VCD player is a computer ;) but I
    guess you know what I mean).
