The SVCD stands for Super VideoCD. It is not a file extension but rather a folder on a special disc type in SVCD format, which is similar to VCD - but has the capacity to hold about 35-60 minutes on 74/80 min CDs of very good quality full-motion video along with up to 2 stereo audio tracks and also 4 selectable subtitles. It is very similar to MPEG-2.

How to convert file with extension SVCD:

As far as we know, this .svcd file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
