Will Region 1 DVD Play in UK?

Q: I want to buy some DVDs on Amazon.com that I can’t get them on Amazon.co.uk. 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: Most of the commercial DVDs are region coded and can only play on a matching player manufactured for that same region. So, you can't directly play region 1 DVDs on a region 2 DVD player. That doesn't mean you're out of luck, however. There are several ways to help you bypass the region 1 code restriction for smooth playback in UK. Continue reading for detailed steps on how to play Region 1 DVD in UK.

3 Ways | How Can I Play Region 1 DVD in UK?

1. Purchase a Region 2 or Region-free DVD Player

To play region 1 DVDs in UK, you can buy a dedicated region 2 DVD player or, which is more recommended, you can choose a region-free DVD player. There are many region-free DVD players capable of ignoring the region coding and handling dics from anywhere.
NOTE: Owning a region-free or multi-region player in the US is legal, but US DMCA makes it illegal to sell a multi-region player in the US.

2. Change the Region Code of Your DVD Player or Drive

You can also change the region code of your DVD player or drive to make it play DVDs from a foreign country. For example, Windows uers can take these steps to convert their region 2 DVD drive to region 1:
Step 1. Go to Device Manager and right-click the DVD drive.
Step 2. Select Properties.
Step 3. Switch to the DVD Region tab and select the geographic area you want.
Step 4. Click OK to save the change.
This method is easy to operate though, it has a big drawback. You can only change the DVD region code 5 times. Once the 5 chances run out, your DVD will be permanently locked to the code you set last time.

3. Rip Region 1 DVDs to Digital Files for Playback without Restriction

Some Region 1 DVDs not only have more powerful RCE Region Protection, but also secondary encryption set by various publishers, such as Disney X-Project DRM, so the above methods may be invalid.
