Full Version: Programs for making PC DVD players region free?

So I just found my TV DVD player is region free.

This obviously means I'm about to import a whole heap of stuff. But obviously I'll be wanting to watch this on my laptop at some point. There's no custom firmware for my particular drive, though I'm noticing there's a number of programs which run in the background and decrypt DVDs on the fly, somehow making your computer think they're region-free.

Has anyone had experience with these sort of programs and is able to recommend such a program?

VLC or Media player Classic Home Cinema. Both dont give a hoot about region locks.

Also a Big FUCK YOU to the MPAA
