Will Region 1 DVD Play in UK?

Q: I want to buy some DVDs on that I can’t get them on I'm just wondering if there is any program out there that helps decode Region 1 DVDs so that I can play them here in UK (Region 2). Any ideas?

A: Normally, it doesn't make sense. Since most of the commercial DVD players purchased locally in the UK are locked to Region 2, and Region 1 DVDs cannot be played on the UK DVD player. But this does not mean that there is no way, you can use several roundabout means to bypass the Region 1 DVD UK restriction, then next, this article will guide you through how to play Region 1 DVD in UK.

How Can I Play Region 1 DVD in UK with Common Methods?

1. Hack or Modify DVD Player

Many websites have introduced and provided detailed instructions on how to unlock the DVD regional limit via the remote control. However, it is not recommended to do this because there are various models of DVD players and remote controls, resulting in different operating methods, which will cause unnecessary trouble and loss.

2. Purchase Region-free DVD Player

Region-free DVD player, as its name suggests, can enforce regional lockout and directly play DVD content. Moreover, it is legally and commercially available. Therefore, this is a recommended method.

3. Use Software DVD Players to Play Region 1 DVD in UK

Some DVD player software on PC, such as VLC, can directly play Region 1 DVD in UK by simply ignoring the DVD regional code. However, this method will be affected by the following two factors

1) Sometimes you need to change the DVD Drive Region to make sure it is in the same region as the DVD. Most CD-ROMs are allowed to change 5 times.

2) The method requires VLC to crack DVD encryption, such as CSS, Sony ARccOS Protection, etc.

4. Copy Region 1 DVD to Digital for Playback without Restriction
