    Im buying this tape of a guy from America, but he asked me just question
    "will you have a problem playing NTSC format".

    I dont understand what he means, will I have problems playing NTSC format?

    depends on your player, we use PAL format in the UK

    check your manual to see if it plays.

    you may have problems playing it, since we have the PAL format here. Just look at your video/tv equipment manuals and check whether they're compatible

    Never The Same Colour: it's the way colour information is transmitted in video in Japan and North America.
    Check if your VCR is NTSC compatible. A lot of recent VCRs have NTSC compatibility but if yours doesn't, don't bother... a NTSC --> PAL (what we use in Europe) converter costs too much.
    Just buy a new VCR or go to a friend's!

    Alternatively, of course, you could just ask for it on DVD, and get a multi-region player (fairly cheap nowadays). And then you'll never have the compatability problem again! Enough said.

    WRONG REGION

    is the message you could get unless you have a region free DVD Player or like watching DVD's on the PC and have enough region changes left.

    Or you can just get DVD-Region Killer, and have an unlimited amount of region changes.
