Dvd region map on Mac computers

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Hi guys,

If a student is trying to watch a dvd on the mac computers using the card reader, and the dvd region map pops up, there is a way around it!
Since we don’t have computer administrator rights to change the dvd region, you can use the VLC media player to watch the dvds.

a) Leave the dvd region map window open and open the VLC media player. (Closing the dvd region map ejects the dvd from the reader.)

b)Drag movie into VLC media player and it should automatically play.

If you have any questions, you can ask Anders or Ellen.

Thanks!
