Are VCD's regionally specific like DVDs (ie 1 or 2) or can they be played on both PAL and NSTC systems? : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

I need to know if I can play US VCDs over here in the UK on my Sony DVD player which does play VCDs.

Also does anyone know what Region 0 DVDs are? Can they be played in both the US and the UK?

Why the hell don't these companies just make them one universal format?

Thanks in advance.

No VCDs have no region codes but are NTSC or PAL encoded. Region 0 is an all region movie and can be played anywhere.
