So I should start off by saying I'm not an expert on BitTorrent, but I was able to get this to work and download the mpeg successfully.
I was able to burn a VCD from the mpeg file I downloaded. I did this under linux but I'm sure there are tools for other OSes, I just don't know them. Here is some info on how I did it:
Then I did the following:
% vcdimager xiuxiu_pulse.mpg % sudo cdrdao write --device 0,0,0 --speed 8 --driver generic-mmc videocd.cueNote that your options to cdrdao might be differnt, but the above worked like a charm for me. The resulting VCD plays in my DVD player just fine. The video quality isn't perfect, but the sound is pretty good. Rad!
