I don't think you need a different format for the UK, you just need to get the dvds there.

Most mountain bike dvds and into the thunder dragon and universe 2 are in NTSC format, but with no region code. Almost all UK players can play NTSC format as long as it isn't region encoded to force it to only work in the US. If you encode as NTSC with no region, it will work everywhere.

You can make PAL dvds, which might not work in the US/Canada, but will always work in the UK, but I don't think many people bother with small runs of DVDs.

Ask Dan what he did for universe 2 just to make sure that I'm right on this. I think all he did was send a bunch of US copies to Roger at unicycle.com, rather than doing anything special to them.

I'm interested in UNiVERsE 2 as well and am curious as to whether or not it's better than the trailer?

Universe 2 is better than *anything*. I think it's the most entertaining unicycling video to date. Sorry Jeff. Yours looks great. And if it doesn't take you three years to finish it you're doing fine!

$17 is kinda steep for me, but if you break even I'd definitely fork it. It's for a good cause.

Well, if I had no way of seeing Universe II, then I would definitely buy it. Or, I would have bought it already. But like I said, my friend has it but I rarely get to see it. Dontcha worry, though, I won't burn it..

i think 17 is a great price. hell on wheel has been working on a dvd for a long time and we know how tough it is to put everything together. we'll be sure to get a few copies!

This is indeed an awesome video.
You all should buy it when it comes it. It will rock.
Anyways, untill now, universe was the only really good uni video (that i've seen) dealing with this type of riding. This variety, not only in rideing, but also in editing styles, is very welcome.
