How to Make Region Free DVD Players

If you have a DVD player which is coded for any specific region and you want to play a DVD which is designed for another region, then you may have to decode your DVD player. The manufacturers of the DVDs and DVD players set specific codes while developing their products, in order to make them region specific. For Instance, U.S and Canada fall in region 1 and China falls in region 6. So, if you have a DVD player which is coded for region 1 and you want to play a DVD which is coded for region 6, then you will have to find the unlocking code for your DVD player, in order to play that DVD.
