A guy in an electronics store told me to use anydvd for pal to ntsc conversion. I am at a loss to find this software useful. The best conversion software I've found so far is convertx2dvd, but the results are still not as good as playing back a dvd on a pal compliant deck to a free standing recorder. This software is on my computer, but I have no idea why I need it. Two questions - Is anydvd useful for any application at all?...Does anyone know of good, I mean EXCELLENT conversion software?
