In the early days of region coding, DVD drives adopt a RPC-1 which is referred to “regional playback control” system. The PC software such as VLC enables to play DVDs and ignore RPC-1. However, VLC can’t access to the DVD’s raw data because of DVD DRM protection such as CSS encryption and some drive with RPC-2 firmware.
To play a region-encoded DVD on PC, you pretty much have two choices — either find the DVD region code that you’ll be using the most and set it to that one (since the four times are going to be used up sooner or later) — or “flash” your drive to make the DVD player region free, which goes with the risk of destroying the drive. Now, there is a better way to play DVD without considering DVD region codes. That is to remove DVD region codes with DVD Region Killer.
A DVD Region Killer enables you to play DVD titles made for different regions on your PC without the hassle to switch the region of your Windows operating system and/or the region of your DVD player software back and forth. DVD Region Killer can reside unobtrusively in your system tray and you can access it easily only when you need it. Now, let’s show you top 3 DVD Region killer applications for Windows (10) and their equivalent Mac versions.
