    Switching DVD Region on iMac
    Problem: An original set of DVD's do not play on my iMac. Some DVD's do play but do not know which region they are from?

    Q: How do I change regions on my iMac for DVD's?

    Since you are using VLC - per your other post - there is no reason to change the region as VLC does not recognize the region flag.

    If you do get DVD Player reinstalled - need to realize you can only change the region setting 5 times and then it becomes permanent.

    Best to keep using VLC if you're using multiple region discs.
    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.
