Guidelines for how much video can fit on a CD-Rom

Greetings, I'm looking for some general guidelines as to how much video can fit on a CD ROM.
Does anybody have a general listing of what can fit in various formats, such as Flash video, WMV and QT?
Thanks much in advance.
Jack

The amount you can fit on a CD really depends on what you want from an output perspective. You could fit over 4 hours of low-res low-bit rate encoded video or only 40 minutes of full-res high-bit rate video for SD. The amount of time you can encode for a CD is totally dependent upon the bit rate you choose. But overall, these days with the best WMV9, H.264, and FLV8 encoders, you can fit quite a lot at very high quality and at a nice sized resolution.
