Disable auto-run of the DVD player application that is bundled with OSX and use VLC (http://www.videolan.org).Syslik said:Does anybody know where i can find a patch for my MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-857, so that i could watch any region or any software that can go around the dvd-region problem?????
I'm curious about this. Don't have a(n?) MBP yet but does anyone have a clue as to why this is the case? Can say mplayer or xine (yes I know they're X based and thus fugly) handle the DVD regions?Syslik said:Unfortunately that doesn't work on the new macbook pro's
Didn't knew about that. I'll check that out when I got home!davegoody said:Disable auto-run of the DVD player application that is bundled with OSX and use VLC (http://www.videolan.org).
As well as a really feature rich media player, it plays DVDs WITHOUT checking region code info. This means that you do not have to change your firmware to watch other region DVDs
I've been looking for software to make back-up copies of one of my DVDs - an old one wich I'm sometimes having some trouble playing... I even all most bought Roxio Popcorn 2 but read in a Macworld review that it wouldn't copy encoded DVDs! Can MacTheRipper rip encoded DVDs and let you change the image size from double layer to single layer DVDs?sunfast said:It's a hassle, but you could always rip the DVD with MacTheRipper and watch it. Or burn a region free copy.
