As the title says, I need to burn a small video (18 Minutes/175MBs) to some 700MB CDs, and I need it to play on a DVD player. I have tried a guide online but I ended up being told by the program that it didn't fit on the CD because it became a 1.2GB file... How does175MB turn into 1.2GBs? I thought it was supposed to be the other way around, in the sense of compression that is. Any help is greatly needed, as I need these CDs made my Thursday (4/7/16).
 
Normal DVD (4.5gb) will fit about two hours of video, or 120 minutes. Your video, therefore would need 18:120x4.5=.0675gb, just shy of 700mb CD.

Use whatever DVD authoring software you like to export your project to VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders, then burn these onto your CD, and see whether they are playable on your DVD player.

Iof you want them to play on a dvd player ,the best compatibility is to burn them on a dvd. Buring them as video-cd or avi or divx or other things might not play on dvd players but using dvd's results in dvd's that play well.

I am using Mem-rex CD-R discs, will these not work? Because I really need them to.

Video CDs were quite common back in the early DVD days, most players even had a VCD logo if they supported it. I know most applications like Nero/Roxio and the like just have VCD as an option.

Thanks for the tip, but I still don't understand how to fix my problem, 125MB video will fit on a 700MB CD right?

VCDs and SuperVCDs were awesome, until DVD burners took over. I had two Daewoo DVD players that would play them.

As for your last question, there's no easy answer for that. At least not one that I can provide. It should, but I never tried to understand the relationship between 80minutes and 700MB. I've managed to get an 800+MB video on a 700MB CDR as a VCD because Nero showed the file was under 80 minutes.

Hopefully someone can explain that part better.

Minutes is a direct conversion of CD Quality (44Khz) sound against the total data storage of a disc. If you increase the sound quality, that takes more data, so you have less minutes. Conversely if you reduce it, you can put a lot more music on a CD.

You can put as little information as you like on a CD, you do not need to make the data match the size of the disc...
