Ntsc 2 Pal
I just rip a NTSC movie that was 7.32gig so it could all fit on a dvd-r with the menus but I thought while I was going through all the process of the guide that the dvd would become region free so I could play it in all my system as PAL which is what region I am, maybe I done something wrong i'm not sure. Anyway I've managed to get it on the dvd-r disc but it's still NTSC is there a quick way now that i've done the long process of encoding it to fit on a dvd-r to make it region free or pal? :idea:

what did you rip the film with? I normally use Smartripper and that automatically de-regions the film.
What authoring program did you burn it with?
What does it do when you play it in your dvd player?

I ripped it with dvd decrypter and also used the same program to burn it to dvd-r. I also used Ifo edit to make it region free but that did'nt seem to work. When I try to play it on my pc or standalond dvd player I get "This player is incompatible with the region marking on this disc"

the wierd thing is the oringinal movie plays in both pc and standalone, but all I can get on the pc with the back-up is the menu and when I press play I get the above message.

The region setting has nothing to do with whether it is NTSC or PAL. Making a R1 NTSC film region free gives you a region free NTSC film. If you want to convert it to PAL then you need to re-encode the video, changing the framerate and frame size.

How would I go about doing this Celtic?
