This depends on the keyframe setting when you encode.  As you note, VCD
MPEG-1 does a keyframe like every 10 frames so the delay is imperceptible.
You can set DivX;-) to insert a keyframe every second and the delay goes
away, at the expense of the files being bigger.  (You can make MPEG-1
videos with a "keyframe every frame" but it will look worse due to having
to fit more data into the same bitrate.)
