dvdidle-does it work?

  henry1 12:25 10 Oct 2003

The dvd player in my notebook is region locked on region 1. My fault I was trying dvd genie and it didn't work so I used up my five goes. I have seen a program called dvdidle that will give region free setting and also supposed to give smoother playback. Mine is a little jerky, probably as mine is an older notebook with older graphics card, not easy to change the card in a notebook. Anyway the question is anyone tried dvdidle, did it work for region free and smoother playback. My notebook is running XPpro and I play the dvd's with power dvd which is the only one that works on my notebook.
Thanks in advance
