The few times I created VCDs, I used the following tools:
avidemux, mjpegtools, vcdimager and cdrdao.

To create a VCD from an mpeg file, you have to multiplex it
properly (mjpegtools), create the cue file (vcdimager), and burn
the cue file (cdrdao, modern cdrtools can probably be used as
well).  VCD's AFAIK contain only a minimal ISO file system only
useful for Windows to play the VCD.
