What Do You Use

Recommended Posts

How do you get around the regional encoding on DVDs for a laptop? I always thought the regional encoding nonsense had gonee the way of the dodo instead of the silly allowed to change the region 5 times before it is locked malarky!

Any thoughts?

Thanks

You should be able to find a code hack for your laptop somewhere on the Interpron.

'AnyDVD' is the answer - but you will have to cough up for it after trial expires.

It also breaks Bluray/HD locks too - hence 'AnyDVD-HD'

Try VLC player. I think you can change the regional settings.

I use VLC. If I recall correctly, if you go into the DVD and cue up the individual VOB files, VLC will play any region. You may also be able to play any region by accessing via the normal "autoplay" method for the whole disc.

Clear as mud?

VLC playet worked nicely, takes a bit to start up though, but dodges all of those anti piracy screens you normally get anyway so its a win win!
