A great deal of info is offered here about nuvexport, .nuvexportrc etc, by Christopher Friend.
Here is a section detailing which Encoding to choose.
Comparisons between SVCD and VCD formats are interesting:
SVCD is just a better quality version of a VCD, allowing upto 60 minutes of Video on a CD. ( Note: Standalone VCD players may not support SVCD, like Apex AD-1225)
Can be burnt to a normal CD
Small filesizes, great for storing on a PC
Just 60 minutes of Video
Less compatabiltity than VCD
A VCD can be seen as the video version of an audio CD. VCDs allow one to add different subtitle tracks, audio tracks, video files and menus to a single CD, but one would need a burning program capable of creating a VCD to do so. A VCD can hold upto 80 minutes of video on a single CD.
Can be burnt to a regular CD
Holds more Video than a SVCD
Worse quality that SVCD
Only holds 80 minutes of video.
A few things, mostly technical notes...
