NTSC movie region free in USA, help

Hi,
I am preparing a DVD-PAL music movie and I want the movie to be played in all popular in USA DVD players. Now I am transkoding film from PAL to NTSC.
Finally I would like to prepare the movie in NTSC - region protected free (0).
Somebody's told me that probably US DVD's players dont' play region protected free films and it have to be coded in region 1 for USA and Canada; is it true??

Thanks for help!

Artur from Poland

Artur,

US DVD players will have no problem playing a region free NTSC film. Encode it to region 0 and it will be fine.

Powodzenia!

There is a little company in my town which makes them really good.
I've played PAL and NTSC film (the some one, transcoded); I've watched one version after the other and both were OK.
But the transkoding technique is a very time-consumng one.
