If i have an AVI file, i first convert it into an MPeg using LSX mpeg decoder. Sometimes u need to rip the sound first into a WAV and simulataneously convert into an mpeg using the AVI file as the video input and the Wav file as the sound input.
Once you have an all working Mpeg, i then use Stomp to make a VCD using the wizard, and thats about it

It even playes normal mpegs that are on a CD (not VCD's), and it automatically converts them and plays them for you - hope sum of this helps. You can get all the software from a nice P2P server, which i wont name........
Hope sum of this helps

First, don't use Nero to encode. It sucks eggs. Use a standalone encoder like TMPGEnc in CQ mode, which is the best encoder available today, IMO.
any tips to improve the quality of the mpeg output
The other thing you can do which will *dramatically* increase the quality of your VCDs is to learn how to use AVISynth scripts, and hit your AVI (I'm assuming it's a DivX) with a few filters like pixiedust, convolution3D, and smart smoother before encoding. Go to http://www.doom9.org and search the forums. They have everything you need.
If your player will accept non-standard VCDs (most will, to varying degrees), visit http://www.kvcd.net and grab one of Kwag's templates for TMPGEnc. KVCD templates use an optimized GOP and quantization matrix to achieve an unbelievable quality/file size ratio. Use Kwag's file prediction formula to calculate your correct CQ value. Again, everything you need is in the forums there.
If you do it right, you can get most movies on 1 CD at 3/4 DVD resolution and it will look indistinguishable from the DVD on most household TVs.
Do what you want with the girl, but leave me alone!
