Obviously he means bootleg DVDs, as he is hoping for better quality pictures than VCD is capable of (ie, it looks like video not film and the colours are true, not crappy NTSC washed out, and also without massive artefacting on the picture).
VCD? Give me a long play 3rd generation VHS anyday!!!
In this day of DVD-R I cannot understand why people are getting so excited about crap quality VCDs, especially when DVD-R has been available for over 3 years now!
