DVD Info X 3

Version 3.0b5

Displays RPC status for any connected DVD drives (beta).

DVD Info X 3 overview

DVDInfo X 3 is a small utility that scans your Mac for DVD drives and displays their RPC (Region Playback Control) status. It supports multiple drives.

  • A RPC-1 (region free) DVD drive will play movies from any region.
  • A RPC-2 (region locked by the RPC Phase II scheme) DVD drive's region may be changed 5 times, then it will be locked. Once locked, it can be reset by the manufacturer (or vendor), so you'll have 5 changes left, again. Only 4 vendor resets are allowed, then the drive will be definitely locked. It can only play movies authorized for the region it belongs to.

A one trick pony but a neat trick it is. I had no idea what the region settings are on the internal Sony DVD drives in my Mac Pro. RPC 1, region free, plays movies from all regions. Good news. :-)

I've tried several times to download DVD Info X 1.0.2 but it is not possible. I either get the message "server not found.." (on the Mac) and "page cannot be found.." (on the PC0. Any ideas why? Where else can i find it?

Yep, definitely something else going on here... Uses full CPU% until quit. Otherwise seems to work ok.
