    I downloaded a movie that won't play in my regular dvd player due to region restrictions. So I thought I would use dvd shrink to make it region free. However, it still isn't region free.

    Any suggestions on how to remove the region code and make it playable on any player?

    I thought DVDShrink could do that although are you sure its not PAL to NTSC your looking for...

    DVD Shrink should have done it.

    Maybe Slysoft AnyDVD?

    That's what I thought, too. My dvd player says cannot play due to region restrictions or something to that effect. Man, I really thought it would've been playable after I used dvdshrink! What a waste of a perfectly good dvd.

    VB, I'll look into that program. What about dvddecrypter?

    I think you may be right. It's PAL and I need it to be NTSC. What is a good program for that?

    DVD Decrypter makes the DVDs region free when you use it to rip a DVD.

    DVD Shrink does the same. (you have to check your settings).


    90% of all DVD players (not older then 2 years) can play both NTSC and PAL. check if your DVD player settings are set to AUTO (not NTSC or PAL)
