PAL Format Video vs. VHS NTSC

I have a PAL Format video that I want to play in the United States. Since I cannot play a PAL Format on my VHS NTSC video tape player(Canada & USA, what can I do? Can I buy a Video player (in the USA) that reads the PAL Format? Is there a USA unit that converts PAL Format video to VHS NTSC format? What about DVD's? Can an International DVD be used in a USA DVD Player? Thanks

If you only have a limited number of videos that need to be converted, I would recommend having a video transfer and duplication company do the job. Look in the yellow pages for one in your area. It would be much less expensive than buying equipment that you'll only use sporadically.
220-electronics does have a video tranfer service.
