    I wish to skip the region checking part of watching my DVDs and i hear VLC is good for this but when i insert a disc DVD Player automatically loads up and when i ignore it and try to play in VLC it doesn't work. My question is how do i get DVD player NOT to load up when i insert a disc as i think this will enable me to watch it in VLC. Sorry if the answer is really obvious.

    Thanks in advance,
    Eagon

    In the CD & DVD PrefPane, you can change the action when you insert a DVD.

    thanks very much for the quick reply, should have thought of that.

    VLC still isn't working though so that mustn't have been the problem, when i command-D and then click play the superdrive makes a reading sound for half a second and then VLC does nothing, strange, any suggestions?
