Converting old SVCD

Hi folks,
this is my first posting here, though MacOS9Lives has been a great help during the last years just by reading.
So at first thank you all!
Now I have a question, not a big problem, but maybe there's a smarter solution than mine:
I have a lot of old SVCDs from the late 90ies sitting in the shelves (captured/burned with PC/DVD-Master).
Luckily I found software for PPC (MacVCD) to watch them now (up to full-screen) and I was also successful to re-record the full-screen-video via video-/audio-out to an eyeTV-box then to another PPC-Mac for recording.
Well, video quality didn't suffer noticably by this - it was abysmal anyway, compared to the todays standard. But it has been a bit time consuming.
Is there any software solution to convert this strange SVCD/MPEG2 video-codec to anything, that can be viewed with current video-players?

IIO:
i would do it in OSX (if you have that on your PPC), VLC and toast 7 or 8(?) should be able to do it.

but try quicktime player first, quicktime pro(!) in OS9, that is.

p.s.:
you should also try if your player app would also read mounted image files. then you just have to copy the CDs to image files.

At least, I hope so.
