A name given to the iPod Video when the software won't let you put videos on it because it's in a standard format instead and not in the nonstandard format the iPod understands. Comes from the television industry term which describes a video signal which carries only a full color black picture (i.e. a content-free video signal).
Mobin had to return his ipod blackburst because it wouldn't play VCD MPEG videos.
