VLC, you may have mispelled it up there, should do the trick for you. just make sure that in your system preferences dvd player is not set up to automatically start playing dvd's

Alternatively, rip the DVD's with mactheripper, thus stripping out the region-protection and play them directly from your harddrive, or re-burn them.

NOTE: You may only do this in countries where circumventing copy-protection is not an issue.

something must be going wrong then because vlc can very well play dvd's and in your system preferences click on cd & dvd's -> "when you insert a video DVD" select ignore

I know Chris, that is the first thing I did and it doesnt work. I saw on the Interent in a google Search I did that Intel Macs cant use the trick from VCL neither RegionX... I cant play the DVDs from my contry of origin now on my Mac... I justdont know what to do.
