Best Workaround for Blu-ray Region Codes - Remove Solutions

Image
Question: Blu-ray region codes, is there a work around?
I live in the US and there are a few dvds i'd like to get from other regions (regions A, B, C) that aren't available here. I know if i use the media player that came on my computer (i'm using a Asus ZenPad 3s btw) i can only change it so many times before it's stuck like that. I've heard that with VLC it will play all the regions, does this work? I've never tested it out as i don't have the discs yet, or know anyone that has. If it doesn't work is there any alternatives i can do?

How to Access Media from UPnP or DLNA using VLC

VLC can easily access media from UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) as well as DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance). The option is available in the View > Playlist section of the media player. UPnP and DLNA allow you to stream content over your local network. You can see televisions make use of this feature to access videos from your laptops and other devices supporting the standard. It’s like sharing the media content that you have on your computer or phone to other devices without the need to copy and move files. All of them should be connected to the same network or Wi-Fi.

Here’s how you access media from UPnP or DLNA using VLC:

Open up VLC Media Player.

Image
FLAC is not a popular file format. Then one of the most convenient solutions available for you is to convert the FLAC file into some other file format. After you have converted the FLAC file, you can now play it in any media player!

FLAC files are created using the Free Lossless Audio Codec to compress audio files while maintaining a better audio quality compared to MP3 compression. Playing FLAC files requires you to install a software or filter that supports the FLAC compression format.

Then follow the tutorial below to convert, copy and even edit the La La Land DVD/Blu-ray and HD Digital video with a professional Blu-ray/DVD/HD Video Converter. Thus you can enjoy The La La Land movie anytime and anywhere.

La La Land is one of the best films of 2016. Its seamless combination of music and storytelling is reminiscent of classic musicals from the 50s and 60s. The performances are top-notch and the two leads have an unmistakable chemistry together (helped by their previous on-screen romance in Crazy, Stupid, Love.) Their characters are flawed, but that's what entices the viewer to join them on this emotional journey. The score and musical numbers are absolutely memorable, even after one viewing. City of Stars and Another Day of Sun are my personal favorites, but there are many others that are, not only fantastic songs in their own right, but combined with some potentially iconic scenes in the movie, paint a picture that's difficult to forget.

Well, in addition to …
