I think it will handle all of your video needs. Please PM me your mailing address.
I sincerely appreciate your kind offer. But for now I would like to try to convert my PAL dvds and use my current Blu-Ray player. Please do not take
any offense. I'm stubborn and determined to make this work.

Were you able to come up with software that I could use?

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

I do want to make it clear that I am a veteran and disabled, but not combat or service related. I was in the Army (also inactive reserve) and a Department of Defense employee
for 17 years total. My disability came in 2002 after suffering several heart attacks and severe bone loss due to undiagnosed celiac disease for 2 years. I don't qualify for social security disability benefits (I guess I need to be more f-cked up health wise), but that's okay because I intend to go for SS when I turn 62 in a year and a half.
So I wanted to clear that up. I'm not looking for charity or want anyone to feel bad for me. I'm doing fine. I am so touched by the kindness of the good people here. I've been since 2005 and hope to be around much longer.
Thank you very much TTD'ers!!

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

you can also use Adobe Premiere, itīs overrated for your problem, but itīs FREE (an older version with full functions)!
search under www.adobe.com .../downloads

Yes Victor. I sent you a PM yesterday that you have not opened yet. I spent a few hours trying to come up with a solution. I did several attempts and looked at the results side by side. The best I found was Full Video Converter 9

make sure you change all of the PAL entries, there are usually several in each IFO and BUP file, but sometimes it doesn't work, never determined why some do and some don't

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

I've achieved decent results (in other words watchable but not as good as playing the original files with hardware that can handle the native format) making menuless discs using: ffmpeg to rip the audio to .wav and the video to NTSC .m2v; SoX to alter the tempo of the audio to make it match the duration of the new video; and ffmpeg to simultaneously compress the new audio to ac3 and mux with the new video. SoX and ffmpeg are multi-platform, but I'm using Slackware and don't know of a linux equivalent of IfoEdit so I use dvdauthor to make menuless discs that just start playing from the beginning when inserted into a dvd player.

Like Unidecker I never (or rarely anyway) burn discs for my own use but now and then it's fun to grab a disc to take elsewhere, so for me the format isn't completely dead just yet.

I also burn and give away 50 -100 dvds per month. DVDS are portable.

Thanks. We all want the same thing. If all else fails, I'm happy to do the conversions for Victor myself.
