As I leave between Europe and the US, I have DVDs from the two regions. I want to be able to read both on my HTPC. The simplest way is to have two DVD drives, one for each region. However, there are under MSWindows some applications that allow reading multiple region DVDs with one drive. Is there any similar applications with Linux and, if yes, how does this fit with LMCE?
Well if you add the 'Libdvdcss' add on software when you install LinuxMCE then you can happily play DVD from any region without needing two region locked drives in your system.
Great. This is the information I was looking for. One last question though. For this to work, does that mean that the DVD should not already be locked, i.e. before the fifth change of region code? Or is it indifferent to the region coding of the DVD drive?
Other question: does this app require additional CPU resource?
