convert dat file into mpg by ffmpeg
ffmpeg is a command to record, convert, stream audio and video (source). I m gonna using it to convert a movie dat file into mpg that will be burnt as a vcd by k3b.
Here is the command

$ffmpeg -i mybinfile.dat -target ntsc-vcd myfile-VCD.mpg

Now in order to use k3b to burn the mpg into vcd, check if the k3b has vcdimager.

$ls /var/log/packages/ | grep vcd

If you got a result like vcdimager-07.24 you already have it. If you don’t install the vcdimager from
Now the k3b can burn it into vcd.
