Blu-ray Disc Encryptions: Regions and BD Region Hack

If you would like to watch Blu-ray disc without region limitation, this article below the definition region codes and how to bypass the blu-ray region codes built into their BD players
What are Blu-ray Disc region codes? 

Region codes place geographical restrictions on where in the world a Blu-ray movie can be played. For example, a BD system bought in the USA region would play only Blu-ray movie disks with that area’s encoding.

Why are there BD region codes?
The purpose of region codes is twofold. First, it allows regional pricing to be affected by the movie studios. Since pricing will be very different around the world, the system prevents home users importing home movies bought overseas at a lower price. Secondly, it allows the control of regional release of movie titles. Often, for instance, Hollywood films are available to buy on disk in the USA and Europe before other parts of the globe. With regional encoding, the studios can prevent unlicensed movie imports so giving distributors around the world control of supply.

The region codes are entirely voluntary on the part of the studios releasing the disks, and Blu-ray movie releases need not have any region code, so called “region free” releases. If a Blu-ray movie is region free, it can be played on all systems regardless of region. Interestingly, many early releases of Blu-ray films were region free.

Blu-ray Disc regions: Region A, Region B, and Region C
The world is divided into three regions by the BDA (Blu-ray Disk Association): Region A, Region B and Region C. The following map shows the regions as defined.

A: East Asia (except Mainland China and Mongolia), Southeast Asia, the Americas and their dependencies.
B: Africa, Southwest Asia, Europe (except Russia), Oceania and their dependencies.
C: Central Asia, East Asia (Mainland China and Mongolia only), South Asia, central Eurasia and their dependencies.

Blu-ray Region Hack/Crack/Bypass
In any case, many people are trying to work out how to bypass the blu-ray region codes built into their BD players, but there are rarely successes. But there are another way to play Region A blu-ray discs on Region on B/ C BD players and PS3: Use BDMagic to rip commercial blu-ray discs to remove the regions, and play the unprotected blu-ray movie from hard drive. Blu-ray players and PS3 boxes support playback of M2TS, MP4, AVI, MKV, MOV, etc.

In this article, I will share the way to get your DVD movies onto Neuxs 7 and Nexus 7 (2013) while keeping original high quality. To get the work done, you need to get some help from third-party softwares. Here, this professional DVD to Nexus Converter is just designed to help you convert DVD movies to Nexus 7 and Nexus 7 (2013) MP4 for playback.

FYI: If you want to keep all the audio tracks (language) and soft subtitles, here's another choice for you: Blu-ray/DVD Converter Pro.

3 Steps to Rip  DVD movies to Nexus 7 and Nexus 7 (2013) support video format

Step 1. Run this Top DVD Ripper, as the DVD to Nexus  Converter. Click "Load Disc" to load your DVD movies into it. 

Pavtube DVD Ripper will detect and list the main title (the full length of this movie) and check it by default. So just keep it untouched and let's move on to Step 2. 

Step 2. Select Google Nexus 7 and Nexus 7 (2013) compatible format.

Here we select MP4 with H.264 codec for Nexus 7 and Nexus 7 (2013). Click the Format drop-down list, and select “Google Nexus 7 H.264 Video (* mp4)" from "Android" category.

Tips: Customize video specs. (Optional)

Click "Settings" to free choose output video size, bitrate, frame rate and other specs. Remember the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

According to my experience, for watching DVD movies on Nexus 7 and Nexus 7 (2013), 1080p with 1500~2500kbps is just all right.

Step 3. Start the DVD to Nexus conversion.
