    Is there a software converter that will allow me to rip a non-commercial PAL DVD (it isn't copy protected) and re-burn it as an NTSC disc?

    Thanks!

    MPEG2 Works 3.4.3

    and a number of others based around the set of Unix tools known as mencoder and mpegenc, which have been ported to OSX.

    When I want to convert NTSC to PAL. I just play the DVD/video file on my PowerBook, then connect my PAL DV camcorder to the TV-out and record it.

    PAL to NTSC converter

    There are hardware based converters and there are software based. Natress.com has some pretty cool fcp plugins for such a task.
