    Huh?

    You're asking how to burn a VCD video file to a DVD? If so, that doesn't even make sense--a DVD is, for the most part, a fancy VCD, and the format is far more supported, so why on earth wouldn't you just burn a DVD? Burning a DVD as a VCD would have terrible video quality and be unplayable on almost anything since it's a nonstandard format, while a proper DVD will play on almost anything.

    If it's longer runtime you're looking for, keep in mind that the DVD spec actually includes quality settings roughly equivalent to a VCD, it's just that nobody uses them and a lot of burning software doesn't support them. But if that's the case you'd be far better off just burning DivX or XviD files to the DVD--much better quality, and some set top players can even play those.
