Video CD FAQ - This is archive.org's record of a Geocities-hosted guide to VCDs (video CDs), a format slightly below VHS in picture quality. Now largely eclipsed by DVDs, VCDs were popular in Hong Kong and Taiwan in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The discs play on computers and some DVD players, and tended to be cheaper than VHS tapes.
