I just got the DVD player to work in my notebook. I think I might have
done something stupid in the process.
I was getting errors when trying to play a DVD thich turned out to be a
problem in libdvdcss. Upgrading it to the latest version fixed it.
While trying to work out what was wrong I used regionset to hard wire it to
region 4 (mask=0xf7) before noticing that the mask was originally 0xff.
My question is: If I'd just left it alone would I have had a region free
DVD player? Or would the drive have forced a region to be set before it
would allow any DVD to be played?
