You need a DVD player for your Mac PC or Mac pro, but the default DVD player: Mac DVD player disappointed us that when you want to directly play my dvd on apple dvd player,it can't do that,so you need a third part program which can help you copy dvd to dvd media file,then you can play that!
The best recommended DVD player for Mac is: VLC, free.
VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVD, Audio CD, VCD, and various streaming protocols.
Install VLC and open it, then select File > Open Disc. Click on the Disc tab, click on DVD, select the device, and click OK
Or select: File > Open File..., point it to the VIDEO_TS folder.
We know DVD has 6 regions.1: North America; U.S. territories; Bermuda 2: Europe; Western Asia; Kingdom of the Netherlands etc. 3: East and Southeast Asia; 4: Oceania; Central and South America; Caribbean; Mexico; 5: Africa, Central and South Asia, Belarus, India, Mongolia, North Korea, Russia, Ukraine; 6: Mainland China.
Most commercial DVDs use encryption that keeps them locked to one or more "region codes," meaning the discs you pick up in other continents usually won't play on an American DVD player.
Although laptop DVD drives are technologically capable of playing any DVD, they force you to switch among region settings to play imported discs. Try switching this setting more than a fixed number of times (five over the entire life span of the computer), and the setting will be locked forever.
For example, if you switch from Region 1 (the United States and Canada) to Region 3 (parts of Asia) to watch a kung-fu flick you picked up on a trip to Hong Kong, you'll have to switch back to Region 1 before playing any movies you purchased at your local Best Buy. Watching that one Jet Li movie just burned up two of your five switches-and not even reinstalling your operating system will get you more.
There are plenty of programs for Macs that allow you to rip DVD movies on Mac created by some clever programmers. I recommend Doremisoft DVD Ripper for Mac which allows you to rip DVD movies to MP4, MPEG, MOV, H.264, FLV, AVI, AVI, WAV, WMA, MP3 etc any SD formats on Mac easily.
For the free VLC player so far only support to Mac OS X 10.5.4, if your Mac has updated to 10.7 Lion OS, then you can use DVD Ripper to solve the problem by converting DVD to other video formats for playing on iTunes, QuickTime, Apple TV etc.
