1-Region protection which disallows you to play the DVD video outside your region? (country)

Which protection type does effect Bsplayer not to open original DVDs before v2.0?

Thanks.
Yes, this is true. Copy protection, also called CSS it's the one that does not allow you to read (and backup) the content of a DVD.
