Certainly not for "playable" disks. By the time you compress a 1 or 2  
hour program down to fit on a CD it looks pretty bad.

I suppose if you were to use MPEG4 encoding in one of its many  
variants you could get a lot more onto a CD. Some players will even  
play DiVX/XViD disks, but not too many will do so.
