VLC media player will play the audio to DVDs but the video will be a bunch of horizontal lines, the last DVD i tried showed this error

Playback failure:

VLC cannot set the DVD's title. It possibly cannot decrypt the entire disc.

Also can it play region 2 DVDs if I am in region 4, and if not how can i get it to do that.

Thanks in advance!

In theory Your DVD drive should need to be set to the region of the DVD. The drives have a limited amount of region changes too.


I have always used DVD playing software to play a DVD on the computer. I use VLC for everything else of course.


Generally speaking I use a region free stand alone DVD Player connected to the TV to play DVDs.


Good Luck
