PAL (dvd) to NSTC (dvd) region free & conversion

Are there any freeware programs that will make PAL region and convert the format to NSTC. I've used IFOEdit to make it region free, I need to convert
PAL to NSTC. I also want to be able to keep the original menus, I would rather not have to re-author. Hopefully I can find something fairly easy to do this.

I have the Samsung C-5500 Blu-Ray DVD player (USA) and cannot be hacked.

Thanks in advance for help.

Good luck with that. I spent a couple of years on this. No freeware that I know of, because I found some software that does a great job, but PM me and I can give you a couple of possible solutions. There is some nice conversion freeware that I use for other stuff, and it may work for you.

Why you need to convert? Every normal standalone player can play both standards.

You'd save yourself a lot of time and trouble if you'd just buy a cheap dvd player that plays pal dvd's. Google "pal dvd player" and you'll find a bunch of dvd players for around $20 that will do the job.

Sony, Panasonic, Mitsubishi don't. Philips does. Most Blu Rays don't though.

I'm very happy for you. I only chimed in to address (and maybe help) with luckyvic's question. I think it's a valid and fair question.

Re: PAL (dvd) to NSTC (dvd) region free & conversion

Thanks for all the responses, I sincerely appreciate them all.
But, I don't want and can't afford to buy another, not even "cheap" standard dvd player. We bought the Blu-ray after the standard player died after 10 years. I am a disabled veteran and money doesn't grow on trees.
My Samsung Blu-Ray does not have the capability play anything except but NSTC. I've been the dvdhelp and all over the web looking for a solution. I don't care about BR dvds,
just would like to the several PAL dvds that I got DAD and TTD over the years.

Re: PAL (dvd) to NSTC (dvd) region free & conversion

You can also do this in IFOEdit which you already use. It doesn't work 100% of the time but almost

Edit the ifo and bup files like you probably did to change region but also change it everywhere it reads PAL to NTSC

I would be happy to honor a disabled vet with a brand new Philips DVP2880/F7.
I think it will handle all of your video needs. Please PM me your mailing address.
