How to tell PAL from NTSC

vbimport

#1

I haven’t been here for a while.
Hello again, everyone.

Is there a way to tell if DVDs that I have are PAL or NTSC?

They play fine, but they’re shared LEGAL concert boots and I need to know when I share them if they’re PAL or NTSC. Is there some way of knowing?

I can rip them to my hard drive if need be, but from there . . .

Any help appreciated . . . .

Use MediaInfo. It is free to download and use. http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en Install the program.

To examine the files on the disk, put it in the drive, then right click on the drive in My Computer. This will give you a list of options…hit Explore.
Go to the Video_TS folder and right click on the VTS_01_1.vob file. You should now have an option called MediaInfo…click it and you will see a list of attributes for this vob file.

If it has 720 x 480 resolution and 29.97fps it is NTSC.
If it has 720 x 576 resolution and 25 fps it is PAL.

GSpot can also tell you, look for the same clues Kerry56 gave you.

I usually open them with Vobblanker.
