PAL to NTSC ?
Posted by: bazookaman
Date: December 13, 2007 02:57PM
My wife (or her mom) taped a TV program a while back that she wanted to convert to DVD for safe keeping. However, when i fired up the VCR, the tape looked and sounded terrible. I then realized it was probably recorded in PAL. So my question is is it possible to convert it to NTSC? And do I need a PAL VCR to do so? Or is there a way to capture the PAL signal THEN convert to NTSC?

multi-system VCR.
[www.world-import.com]

or you can often find someone you can pay if you only need 1 conversion done.
might cost you $10-$20.

I'm pretty sure her mom has a multi-system VCR. Could that be hooked to the computer?

some multi-system VCRs still require a PAL TV.
some do not - those do digital conversion on the fly.

what's the program, you may be able to find it online somewhere.





The Taoist Zhuangzi said, "Good order results spontaneously when things are let alone".
The sociologist, and historian, Adam Ferguson described the phenomenon of spontaneous order in society as the "result of human action, but not the execution of any human design".

Its actually a live recording of some singing and dancing. To say I've conducted an exhaustive search would be an understatement.

Another vote for finding a local service that will do it.
In my (small) town, it costs $10.

using toast for any sort of conversion simply takes too long...
