    Hello everyone.

    I had downloaded an avi movie and wanted to convert it to a DVD format. I had used AVI2DVD to convert the AVI file to DVD files. Then using DVD Fab to burn it to a DVD. The reason it won't play in our DVD Player is because its a PAL type of DVD. Can anyone suggest how to convert the DVD to NTSC ?

    Many thanks.

    you could try using the free version of convertxtodvd on the avi. just make sure to set up the output as ntsc in the options menu.

    once it's encoded to pal dvd it isn't easy to change to ntsc, re-encoding the avi is a better way.

    Thanks this program works like a charm despite having a water mark being the trial version.

    That watermark would be why the suggestion to use the free version not the trial version.

    Look for this section on the page for convertxtodvd for teh free version.

    Other info:
    Download the old free DivXtoDVD 0.5.2 here.
