I get a lot of DVDs from the UK (and live in Canada) - usually I remove the regional coding with AnyDVD, then burn a copy of the DVD with CloneDVD.
Both are free trial software for 20 days.
Just installing AnyDVD, should let you play the DVD on your computer.
To play on a standalone DVD player you may need to encode from PAL to NTSC - I believe you can do this using Nero. Do a search on CDF for "PAL to NTSC" I know there is a link to a tutorial on this.
But you may not have to do this, depending on your DVD player. If you can enable progressive scan and have HDTV system (projection, LCD, plasma) you may be able to play the burned copy of your film. This is by far the easiest route :iagree: You may also be able to just play a PAL DVD by selecting the right options for your player. I recommend seeing if there is a thread for your player on this site.
