noted as feature request for distant future releases; low
priority for now

When I build a VideoCD then the actual MPEG data files are
stored in such a way (usually a .DAT extention) that they cannot be
easily played in a regular computer.

My suggested feature is to
create a second name for the same file in the root of the CD which is an
easy to use filename like "Vacation 2002.mpeg". What I mean can be
compared best to what is done in UNIX as a 'hard link'.

I've seen
CDROMs which appear to have more data on them then what should be
possible. I've for example seen CDs which have several files of
600MB on them. As far as I know this is done by doing something illegal
to the TOC of the CDROM. I think this same trick could be used to
implement the mentioned feature.

I'm not quite sure if this is
possible in such a way that most regular VCD/DVD players would still
accept the disks.

Best regards,

Niels Basjes.

Please let me know what you think of this.
