At the end of June, I have ordered some Thai DVDs as well as some VCDs from the website ethaicd.com. Despite the shipping from DHL Express, they still took a month and a half to get to the States; my guess is that they lost the shipping information so I took to Facebook and sent them a message and they said they would look into it and they arrived within days.
Here are my pickups from ethaicd.com :
For those of you that don't know (I'm assuming that's a lot of you), VCD is a home media format that is basically a CD that holds video. It wasn't popular in the USA, but is very popular in Asia as a means of releasing content on home media. VCDs are the cheapest home media format available on the market. The content is spread across two discs as a CD can only hold 700 MB of space and the movie is highly compressed in order to fit across the two discs. The packaging on these two VCDs specifically makes me think of how Laserdiscs are packaged. However, LDs only come out of one side unlike the VCDs which can come out both sides.
Interestingly there was one VCD that was left out. I have also ordered the 20th Anniversary Editon of Oliver and Company. However once the order arrived, I was told it was out of stock. Oh well... I did receive my money back, so that's good... I guess...
Lot together :
