1.  Your PC definitely will play PAL.
2.  Your TV very probably does too.
3.  PAL is better quality.

ANY PC that is capable of playing DVDs is capable of playing both PAL and NTSC discs

When you say your non PC DVD player wont play PAL, have you tested it with a region free PAL disc?

Since the very early days most stand alone dvd players could play both PAL and NTSC discs although some had to be switched via a menu. It may be that you have tried playing a region 2 PAL disc in a region 1 player, in which case it will refuse to play. Region codes on discs can be changed using dvd shrink and a good amount of players can be made multiregion via a remote hack.

What make and model is your player?


I have a Sony dvd player.  I used to have a dvd player that could play PAL but the laser burnt out.  I've used Nero to convert PAL to NTSC but Nero sucks (in this case anyways).  When I converted a concert with Nero the concert would freeze for a few seconds then keep going.

Fair enough.  I won't try and help next time, and wil linstead revert to offensive levels of sarcasm.

Ingrate.

Sony DVD Players should play PAL and NTSC. You haven't answered all the questions asked so you aren''t helping yourself [img=/images/smiley/msn/sad_smile.gif][/img]

If people try to help you should at least make an effort to respond courteously


Well I specifically requested a concert and I get stuff like "PAL is better quality" and "your computer should play PAL". 

I don't have much knowledge in DVD technology and Region codes and all that.

Well what exactly did you expect to hear ?
It's a PAL recording and I haven't seen an NTSC copy anywhere (but I must admit that as a person from a PAL land I didn't search for it).

So you have 2 choices

1) to play it on an NTSC hardware - I really have problems to believe that your DVD player / TV can't handle PAL video. Both my DVD players and both my TV sets have a "PAL / NTSC / auto" option, and it's all cheap hardware bought ages ago. And your computer will DEFINITELY play a PAL DVD, if nothing else, VLC (http://www.videolan.org) takes care of it

2) to create an NTSC copy yourself from a PAL copy. But for Christ's sake, do it PROPERLY and not with a "1 click solution" like Nero. Of course it will look crappy if you do it with some shitty software or even a DVD recorder. To make it properly you have to ensure that the PAL copy is progressive (if it's interlaced, you have to deinterlace it), resize it from 720x576 to 720x480, and change the framerate from 25 fps to 29.97 fps, either by slowing it down to 23.976 and making a proper telecine or with some nice tool like AviSynth simply CHANGE the fps

Well, around where I live, our dvd players aren't compatable with PAL dvds.  I've tried all my PAL dvds and none of them work.  I've been searching for something that will convert PAL to NTSC for free, but every one I run across comes with a price.  You are the only one who actually said that you haven't seen an NTSC copy.  These other guys were just telling me suggestions as if they were just hiding an NTSC copy or something. 

Thanks

Wait now -
How about this: I would love a copy of this show. If someone could furnish me with a copy, I'd happily convert the PAL disc to NTSC for the original poster.

That way, we're all happy.
