Re: PAL to NTSC

You can use a program called IFOEdit to sort of trick your DVD player into playing PAL DVDs, and it is VERY, VERY easy to do.

Using IFOEdit, open .IFO files. The program will have two windows of information. In the bottom window there will be lots of lines of text. Look for the lines (there will be 1 or 2 or more depending upon which IFO file you are looking at) of text containing the word "PAL." Double click those lines. A dialog box will open. There is a button to select PAL or NTSC. Select NTSC. Save the file. It will ask if you want to change the .BUP files as well. Answer "Yes." You're done. Burn away.

This is not a true conversion (PAL to NTSC) but changing the info files like this will trick many DVD players into believing this is an NTSC recording. I have heard it will not work on all DVD players but it works great on mine. No problems whatsoever. It does nothing to alter the actual video files, so there is no deterioration of the quality. It is my understanding that many (most?) newer DVD players are capable of playing both NTSC and PAL though they are not sold that way (perhaps because of pressure from the movie industry because it helps make it easier for them to maintain its region encoding system -- just a guess).

The worst thing that could happen is that it wouldn't work on your player and you'd have wasted $.50 cents on a DVD+R. Back up every file in the "VIDEO_TS" folder that is not a video (VOB) file and if this doesn't work for you you can restore the folder to it's original state (this is also a good idea in case you ever wish to trade the show or reseed it, etc.).

IFOEdit is free, and available here: http://www.afterdawn.com/software/v...ols/ifoedit.cfm.

YES!

Nero Vision Express 3 will allow you to convert PAL to NTSC! I've done exactly that for a few PAL dvds I've recieved.

Re: PAL to NTSC

with all due respect, can we make a "stickie" thread on this? i only ask this because this question pops up, what, every two weeks or so? i'm not bashing anyone here - the only dumb questions are the ones people *don't* ask... but if it can be "stickied" at the top, perhaps it would save a little b/w?

just a thought.


and maybe a stickie for the "is this MP3/lossy sourced?" type stuff? it would be nice to have one thread for all the various questions, for quick reference.

Re: PAL to NTSC

Actually, I'll throw this in the Archive for future reference.

As for the mp3/lossy type stuff, I'm kinda wondering if we should have a sub-forum on that. PM Five if you like the idea and he will let Staff know if there are a lot of people interested in it.

(Hi Jamie. You're the Mod that knows this so I elected you.)

Re: Non PAL Floyd Live8 PLEASE!!!!!

Yeah, I hear the non PAL request.

In a perfect world somebody recorded the uninterrupted set (having a satellite connection) with a DVD recorder and matched it up with perfect audio.

Certain DVD players only play NTSC right? (North America)

Re: Non PAL Floyd Live8 PLEASE!!!!!

I used DVD shrink to create an region free ISO image and DVD Decrypter to burn it and it works fine in go ol' USA. PCM digital sound that won't play through my optical or digital coax cables, but this is probably the best thing we get until someone converts it or until the official release comes out. Give it a go, both programmes are free and can be easily found. Good luck...!!!

Re: Non PAL Floyd Live8 PLEASE!!!!!

Someone just told me that my player might be playing it 'cause it may be region free. It's a low end JVC player and I thought it was only region 1. Also, I thought that the TV wouldn't be able to display PAL anyway because it's a NTSC TV...

Show's what I know. Does anyone who knows better what to clear this up?

Re: Non PAL Floyd Live8 PLEASE!!!!!

I have a very cheap Apex player and it converts the PAL before sending it to the TV. So, PAL plays just fine on my TV. (USA)

The 'homemade' DVDs that get posted on sites such as TTD are all region free. So, there is no need to worry about that at all.

Re: Non PAL Floyd Live8 PLEASE!!!!!

Found one:
http://thepiratebay.org/details.php?id=3352388

NTSC widescreen DVD. Source (unfortunately) is XviD, but it looks really good and is complete and uncut. Your choice of THREE audio streams: XviD (captured from a German digital cable source), XM Satellite, and BBC2 FM. (I like the FM source best.)

I was hesitant due to the less-than-optimal source. But the XviD version looks damned good, the conversion to 30fps NTSC DVD was very well done, and the choice of audio sources makes this overall a very good DVD.

This one should suffice until a better-sourced version surfaces.
