Just to clarify: virtually all domestic video-tapes are VHS (Betamax
being the defeated rival standard), and it's "PAL encoding" you want in
order for it to be "UK video-friendly". The good news is that there's no
longer a need to worry about this: all UK video players made in the last
4 years play US tapes (encoded in NTSC) as well as UK ones (encoded in
PAL).
