I can play region 2 dvds perfectly and I thought I could play region 1 dvds as well but I just bought one on ebay and it won't play in vlc, totem, smplayer, mplayer, xine or handbrake.
Apparently if I use
regionset to change my dvd player's region, I can only do that 5 times and then it's fixed.
So I'd like to find the way to do it without resorting to regionset.
I tried vobcopy but none of the media players play the vob files created despite the success message.
[Info] Copying finished! Let's see if the sizes match (roughly) [Info] Combined size of title-vobs: 10240 (0 MB) [Info] Copied size (size on disk): 1718142976 (1639 MB) [Info] Everything seems to be fine, the sizes match pretty good ;-) [Hint] Have a lot of fun!
The video is like a really bad transmission, although the audio is ok.
Where do I go from here?
