I have a client in Australia who wants to send DVDs to her US customers.


From what we hear, most domestic US gear is not compatible with PAL, but what about PC's.


Will ALL PCs in the US play PAL (not region coded)?

Every codec I've tried, will. Region coding will require a firmware hack or AnyDVD.


And by the way, many DVD players sold here will play back PAL/different regions, and most HDTVs will.

It wouldn't make sense to make software that doesn't work with PAL, so yes you can assume that all commercial and popular freeware software will work with PAL.

Thanks everyone.


I agree about it not making sense not to have PAL compatibility on a PC, which is why it always amazes me that your TVs and DVD players are only NTSC. There are a lot of titles out there that are only in PAL. It is so easy to make dual standard TVs these days.

They aren't. Every HDTV I've ever used can also accept a PAL signal.

That is nice to know, but I am afraid that not everyone has converted to new technology yet.
