On a stand alone DVD player connected to the TV or on the DVD ROM in your PC?

there is no legal way to do what you want, in this country at least.

A lot of DVD players can be "hacked" to be multi region, often just by using the remote. Tell us what DVD player you have and somebody may be able to help.

Or google "<make of dvd player> multi region hack"

It may be possible to set your player to multi region quite legally, what make and model is it ?
