    Just got my macbook,.... trying to use it to watch dvd,... but quicktime doesn't work. DL realplayer,.... doesn't work. Flip4mac,... doesn't work.

    Then I realize there's a DVD player in the application, not the dock,... and it works.

    So I can't use realplayer to watch DVD?

    There's a lock after 5 times of changing the region code,.... is there way to bypass that?

    you need a firmware hack to get by the regioncode.

    i used one for my PC. it'll set the region code to 0, so you can watch a DVD from anywhere.

    or, if you only have a few foreign DVD's, use DeCSS and you'll be fine.

    There is no known firmware hack for the MacBook DVD drive as of yet. It will lock after 5 changes and you will be stuck to that region. Look up your DVD drive type in :apple:->About This Mac->More Info and keep an eye on www.rpc1.org for the new firmware.
