    Probably depends on what kind of Mac you have. Some Macs have the region locked at firmware level. I have one of the late 2008 unibodies, and the region is set at firmware level. Meaning there's nothing you can do about it unless there's a firmware flash thing available for your drive. Even booting into windows and running AnyDVD won't help...

    If that isn't the case, however, then you could disable the DVD player to automatically run when a DVD is inserted, and launch VLC instead.

    By the way you should change the title of the thread to something more directly related to your problem. You'll get more hits that way. Oh, and do a search as well;)
