Hi guys, is there an application for the Mac in which I can watch movies from regions 1 and 4, without changing the drive's region?
Would really appreciate it, thanks:)

All new Macs have region locked drives that cannot be changed without a firmware update. Only a select few have had such an update. Look up you drive in System Profiler and see if its listed over at for a firmware update, otherwise you are out of luck.

Another option is to get an external optical drive. And set it to the different region.

Note, personally I have not done this but hear that it works okay. YMMV.
