Most commercial DVDs use encryption that keeps them locked to one or more “region codes,” meaning the discs you pick up in other continents usually won’t play on an American DVD player. If you believe the movie studios, this encryption is a necessary tool in the ongoing war against piracy. But DVD Region Codes limit us the playback, which leads some discussion on the Internet about codes for “unlocking” DVD players so that they can play DVDs having other region codes freely》
|DVD Region Code||Geographic Region(s) Used|
|0||Region code “0” is an informal way of saying that all region codes are set, which is equivalent to the absence of a region code. There is not really a region code “0”.|
|1||USA and Canada (not Mexico or Greenland)|
|2||Western Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, and Japan|
|4||Central and South America and Oceania|
|5||Africa, India, and countries of the Former Soviet Union|
If you cannot “unlock” your existing DVD player, the most obvious and straightforward way to overcome DVD region codes is to purchase a DVD player from the same part of the world as the DVDs that you want to watch.
