The title to this thread is slightly misleading. It's not just MPEG-4 that China is against, it's all of MPEG (including MPEG-1 and MPEG-2).

I remember about 5 years ago, China didn't want to adopt the DVD format due to licence issues. They got Philips to come up with another format, Super VCD. Super VCD uses MPEG-2, like a DVD, at up to 2748 kb/s (I believe a DVD goes up to 10240). They support 1 video track, 2 audio tracks, and 4 subtitle tracks. The CDs play at 2x speed when recorded at full bitrate, so an 80 min CD can hold a minimum of 40 minutes of video. Super VCD was my preferred format when I was on the PC, as they were relatively easy to create and could be played back on a DVD player. However I couldn't find any authoring software on the Mac so I'm now using 3ivx. I've gone off track a bit here!
