VCD, or VideoCD, is a format that contains about 74 minutes of video and audio. The audio and video are encoded and stored in MPEG-1 format. The VCD can be played on all computers with a CD-ROM drive and some standalone DVD players. MP4, or MPEG-4, is a video format that uses different compression for its video and audio tracks.
