VideoCD images without copyright?

Postby brostenen » 2019-1-06 @ 23:22

Hi.
I need to test out my mpeg1 creative labs video blaster mp400 card. And for that I am after an image of an VideoCD movie of some sort. Anything with an menu and so on, just like a DVD movie. Just on VideoCD format.

If anyone know any place to download a promo video. Preferable of some vintage hardware sales material, or something, then that would be a bonus. All I need is a bin/cue download.

As far as I know, "menu" is not available in VCDs. I have still about 500+ of them (my old collection before DVD became mainstream) and I'm quite sure about none of them has any kind of menu functionality.

The Blender shorts would make good VCD conversion candidates.

unless you're really serious about "without copyright", perhaps some GREAT old public domain works like "A Case of Spring Fever"....
by the way, DOSBox is not for running Windows 9x

VCD 2.0 supports menus, though I only remember seeing them on a couple of discs. The average bootleg movie VCD didn't have them.
