Convert a PAL DVD to NTSC Format

5


5 per session Virtual OK

Have you ever bought a DVD that happened to be for the wrong region? Without a universal player or something that's jimmy-rigged in various ways, this can be a pain. Ultimately, though, it keeps you from being able to do what you really want, which is sitting down and relaxing with a TV series, a concert, a documentary series, or a movie.

Although I've benefited from torrent files for out-of-print items in the past (especially music-oriented bootlegs), my service here isn't to provide an explanation of that. Rather, I'd like to provide you with the tools and know-how needed to convert your existing DVDs that are in PAL format so they can be compatible with another region of DVD player (usually NTSC, which is prevalent in much of North America and Japan). The reverse process (NTSC to PAL) is also possible to do. I can explain the programs and hardware needed to carry this out within less than an hour.

Training & Qualifications


I've been a music and movie buff for at least the last 20 years, with an interest in collecting everything I've most enjoyed over time in order to build a nice library. As part of that process, I've run into compatibility issues once in a while and have been forced to learn some workarounds so I can see and enjoy certain things without blowing a fortune.

Availability & Preferences


I'm typically free during the morning and afternoons on weekdays and weekends.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I sent Chris some extra simbi because it's obvious he put a lot of work into what he wrote, and I think it's worth more than he charged :)

About Chris Bacavis

I'm a teacher, writer, editor, and researcher living in Colorado Springs. Outside of tutoring student writers on a regular basis, I've also worked as a senior research fellow with the Institute for Pu...blic Dialogue, a rabid freelancer partnering with businesses and non-profits, and a consultant filing numerous Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of investigative reporters. My politically oriented and academic writing has been published on my own blog (blog.chrisbacavis.com), Reformed Libertarian, and Freedom Bunker, while my creative writing has been featured in Empirical Magazine, The Penwood Review, The Dial, and the short story collection Fireside Dreams. I earned my Bachelor's in English, with a Communication minor, from the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs (UCCS). Since then, I've continued to do English/communication tutoring, freelance editing, and research work for more than a dozen business, creative, and education-oriented clients. I also have at least two years of experience in editing written content for self-published authors, specifically nonfiction/journalism, fiction, and short stories. I'm most motivated by opportunities that I know will benefit and shape me in terms of developing relationships, acquiring skills, and building in knowledge. As such, I'm always seeking out new experiences and looking for unique ways in which to fulfill that desire on my part. Simbi has become a wonderful venue in which to carry that out. show more
