PAL DVD to NTSC DVD conversions

Posted:

Hello everyone.



I'm not sure if this question has a place here but if it does, great, if it doesn't, woops.



Here goes...



I have a VIDEO_TS folder with VOB, BUP, etc... files making up a small dvd. It's in PAL format.



I want to convert it to NTSC so I can burn it and see it on my DVD Player.



Is there a program, freeware or commercial, or a trick to make it NTSC?



Meanwhile, I'll just view on the computer.



Program can be Mac or PC as I have some of each.

    I'm sure you'd have to re-encode it. PAL has a different resolution and frame rate so it's not like you could just reformat a header. ffmpegx will do the job for you.I think you can drop the video_ts folder onto it but if not, you should extract a single VOB from the video_ts, re-encode it and then author to DVD.

    Buy a new dvd player. Almost all dvd players will convert ntsc <=> pal on the fly without trouble.
