Hi zuluith and welcome to MyCE. :flower:
That's not entirely true though as you can burn a VCD or a number of lesser supported video formats on CD such as SVCD, XVCD or miniDVD.
VCD would have been the best bet compatibility wise, as pacmac had suggested, but the quality is very low by today's standards.
That post you replied to dates from 2005 though and all these formats have effectively been redundant since cheap DVD writers and media became available.
An interesting history lesson though.
