DVD PAL or DVD NTSC, here's the Country List...

I have been answering this question very often.

"Does this country use DVD NTSC or DVD PAL?"

A very technical question, but an important one.

My clients wants to send their DVD to other countries.

I have to make sure I burn them in the right format.

While Singapore can play both NTSC and PAL DVDs, some countries can play only either one format.

If you send a PAL DVD to Japan, their NTSC DVD Players will not read the disc.

Here are the top 10 countries I get asked most frequently:
  1. Australia - DVD PAL
  2. China - DVD PAL
  3. Hong Kong - DVD PAL
  4. Japan - DVD NTSC
  5. Korea South - DVD NTSC
  6. Philippines - DVD NTSC
  7. Singapore - DVD PAL
  8. Taiwan - DVD NTSC
  9. U.S.A. - DVD NTSC
  10. Vietnam - DVD PAL
I have created a list of 66 more countries with their DVD format.
