JVC is it a VCD player

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Hi I have a JVC DVD player model number XV-501BK. In the instruction manual it says I can play VCD's but I only have a REGION 1 player. Can I play any VCD on it.

Video CDs don't have region codes, so you should be able to play VCDs from any regions on your player. *Except* that you may run into NTSC/PAL problems. NTSC and PAL are two different video formats, NTSC being used in North America and PAL being used in Europe; they're slightly different (and incompatible).
