    Hi,
    I am newbie to DVD and have a simple question. Will DVDs that I create in the US play on DVD players and TVs in Europe, or is there a compatibility problem as with VCRs?

    Thanks for your advice.

    Hiya,

    Believe it or not, we Europeans can actually get AMERICAN films on DVD in Europe ;)

    Just joking with ya, Ok...

    Almost every player found in Europe can handle DVD's created and written to the NTSC standard, as well as PAL.
    (only America has such a repressive regime that they will not allow you guys to have DECENT players like us - LOL).

    All in jest..

    Don't worry about standards if you are sending stuff to Europe (but the French are a bit odd), as we can handle just about everything.

    Have Fun....

    If you strip out the region-coding with something like DVD Shrink I don't see a problem.
