Is there any way to burn vcd with any other name other than avseq.dat?Alternatively, is there way to incorporate titles of the  video clips so that they appear at the time of playback of the vcd?

1.No, the file name is standard. If your mpeg1 file has another name, it will be changed in the authoring process. You can make the mpeg1 file, with the specification for video cd with any name you want, and the authoring program will rename the files as necessary.

2.You can add still picture and menus if you author the videocd in videocd 2.0 format. If your authoring software does know only vcd 1.0 or 1.1 you cannot add menus and still pictures.

Mahesh Bhai,

You can rename your mpeg files in the Nero when you compile them as VCD.

After adding the files, you will see them being renamed as AVSEQ01, 02 etc.

You can rename them to MUSIC01.dat, MUSIC02.dat etc.

MUSIC01.dat and AVSEQ.dat are the only two names i have seen working fine across all VCD players.

AVSEQ stands for AudioVideoSEQuence.

As for subtitles, thumbnails, use NERO to create VCDs, it gives the option to generate an interface for your video files.
