I have the last generation iMac that was released last summer. I recently took a trip to Japan, and I thoroughly enjoyed the randomly hilarious television there, so I borrowed my friends' DVD recorder and TV and burned a few DVDs of the shows. It's in region 2, is that why I cannot play these videos? I've tried VLC, Ripit and Mactheripper (both won't recognize the DVD) and handbrake. All have failed. If I get an external DVD player that I set to region 2 will I be able to watch them?
