Hello,

I have a Macbook pro, and it is set to region 2. How can I play different regions without having to change the region code?

I have VLC but it doesnt seem to open the disk from my desktop.
Also tried opening the Video_TS.VOB file but that didnt play the movie. It played a short repeating clip of a kid jumping and twisting in the air (strange!)

Any thoughts?

Thanks

You should be able to play them through the pre-installed DVD Player app, it will ask you if you want to change the Region that the DVD player can play, but be careful you only get about 3 times you can change the region default until it locks to that region.

Hope this helps

VLC is the standard app for playing dvds instaed of Apple's DVD Player. Try deleting the VLC .plist file(in Home Folder>Library>Preference), and also try downloading and installing VLC again.

There is no legal way of doing this without changing your region code. Hence, i nor anyone on this forum can answer this question without breaking the rules.

My advice, Google it. It is definitely possible.
