I own DVDs with different region codes and I'd like to watch them on my Mac. I've heard of VLC player and that it enables you to watch DVDs from different regions - provided you've not yet assigned a region to your DVD drive, which I, unfortunately, have. Can I still use VLC player to watch my DVDs? Would you recommend that?

Don't know about this feature, but VLC is definitely a great player that I use a lot!

If you believe you can do something, you can.
If you don't think you can do it, you can't.
Either way, you're right!

All of my DVD's are also from a single region, so I can't test it.
I have read multiple posts that say it works.
VLC can be downloaded, installed and tested in under 5 minutes (unless your on dial up).
And definitely in less time than it takes waiting for multiple responses and then testing it out.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

VLC works as a multi region player DESPITE your drive being assigned as far as I know, because DVD player won't play my region 1 discs on my iBook, but VLC will play anything I throw at it.
It's a great program.
