    Another one of those “blonde” newbee questions:

    There is a BIG difference in US VCRs and the rest of the world. 
    I know that there is something in DVD players that controls what DVs you can play, that is dependent on your country.

    Do homemade DVs have any problems, playing world wide?

    DVDs made with iDVD are “region-free” and will play on any DVD player. DVD Studio Pro lets you set a region code, if you so desire.

    You may have to convert your footage (and create your iDVD project) to PAL format depending on where you’re planning on sending your disc. A list of countries using PAL and those using NTSC (the broadcast standard used in North America, among others) is available here.
