The other thing you have to know is if your player (or your brother’s player in this case) can handle dvd video in PAL format, since that is the standard in Britain. US uses NTSC.
Converting PAL to NTSC is possible, but not always fun to do. You can try it in Nero Vision, but no guarantees for it to work.[/QUOTE]

Are you saying there are two factors I have to take into consideration?
