BluRay Region Map

“Is there any region free Blu-ray player software that I can use on any Blu-ray drive and the player can do the rest?” For Blu-ray movie buffs, this problem might be a big obstacle, as the region-code restrictions of Blu-ray disc players would make them unable to play Blu-ray discs with different region codes.

Just like region codes for DVDs, Blu-ray disc players sold in a specific geographical region are designed to play only the discs authorized by the content provider for that region. The Blu-ray disc region coding scheme divides the whole world into three regions: A, B, and C.

According to the Blu-ray Disc Association, “all Blu-ray disc players … [and] Blu-ray disc-equipped computer systems are required to support regional coding.” However, “Use of region playback codes is optional for content providers. …” Most movie studios have released many of their Blu-ray discs region-free, such as Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios, Sony Pictures, and Walt Disney Pictures. This means you can play and enjoy most Blu-ray discs on various Blu-ray discs players. However, for people who use Blu-ray disc drives to watch Blu-ray movies on their computers, the best and safest way for them to watch Blu-ray discs from various regions is still to make use of region-free Blu-ray discs players.

But Leawo Software has a solution for you: free Blu-ray player software. We have just launched our region-free Blu-ray Player Software Giveaway, providing free Windows Blu-ray software so you can watch your Blu-ray discs from any region. Blu-ray movies fans could pay a visit to the giveaway page to get this region-free Blu-ray player software.

Leawo Blu-ray Player is a Windows-based Blu-ray player software program that plays Blu-ray discs on Windows computer (including systems running Windows 8). This Blu-ray Player software is powered by Leawo’s Smart Decryption Technology, which includes advanced disc region code and disc-protection-removing technology to increase Blu-ray movie loading speed by up to 50 percent and make Blu-ray player software essentially “region free.” The region-free feature of this Blu-ray player software makes it able to play back Blu-ray discs of all region codes, no matter the Blu-ray discs are released in Region A (North America), Region B (Europe and Africa), or Region C (China, Japan, and Russia).

Leawo Blu-ray Player also works as DVD player to play any DVD movies or a video player and audio player to play videos and audios in various formats — at all no additional cost. You can also adjust subtitles and audio and video settings for a quality, lossless Blu-ray movie experience. You can also use Leawo Blu-ray Player to load external subtitles. As for its audio support, Leawo Blu-ray Player plays DTS-HD Master audio and DTS-5.1 audio for lossless audio output. Meanwhile, just like any other professional media players, Leawo Blu-ray Player provides easy-to-use full media playback navigation and control for movie fans.

However, any kind of region-free Blu-ray player software program can only play Blu-ray discs of all region codes when equipped with a Blu-ray drive and connected to the Internet. For smoother program running, recommended requirements for your computer include a 1 GHz or above Intel/AMD processor with at least 512MB RAM and a graphics card such as an ATI Radeon HD 4000 or NVIDIA GeForce 8-Series or newer or integrated Intel G45 or higher.
