Default Region free viewing on a Mac

Does anyone know of an effective solution for watching blu-rays region free with full menu display on a Mac? For Windows, there's AnyDVD, which works like a charm. Is there a solution that's just as effective when watching blu-rays on a Mac? When you download most blu-ray playback software, the software itself only allows up to five region changes, so, yeah...Is there a way around this that allows for full disc menu support? Thanks.

I do have an Asus laptop as well, but my AnyDVD licence ran out, and I don't feel like paying to renew, since I just paid to upgrade PowerDVD, so it'll be Region A on the Mac and Region B on the Asus I guess. I don't have a TV needless to say.

I thought free Leawo Blu-ray Player does. But region free not sure.

Of course you need external BD drive

For blu ray on computers, the region setting is in the player, not the drive.

Perhaps there's a way to unlock the region setting in the software that I'm unaware of

Macgo blu ray player ignores region coding according to user reports. There is free download if you want to try it, plus they have a sale on.

You can reset the region change counter on PowerDVD on your PC by deleting the hidden file located at C:\Program Data\CyberLink\BDNAV\ris.ifo

would one of the moderators please man up and explain why I have messaged 5 moderators including jasonr to request that this thread be moved to a suitable section, they have done nothing.
This section is meant for set top players. Not for PC, dose not just mean Windows devices.

Why are they called moderators if they don't carry out the duties that they have agreed to carry out?

Does deleting the file no longer work for newer versions of PowerDVD (i.e. Version 20)?

OK. I'm using V20 and can't seem to find the hidden file.
