Maybe someone can explain this to me. I am trying to watch Hostiles Blu Ray on my laptop. Without AnyDVDHD installed, PowerDVD17 says the disk appears corrupted, yet with AnyDVD active, it plays the disk just fine. Now to VLC. When I try playing it without AnyDVD, it tells me the disk appears encrypted (this I get), but with AnyDVD, it says there is a mismatch between my player and the disk region. If this is not normal, I would be happy to post the logfile. I don't often play Blu Ray on my laptop as I just upgraded to that capability. I have an LG 16NU50 drive. Hostiles is a Region A Blu Ray. Now, the first time I inserted the disk with AnyDVDHD scanning it, it asked what Region the disk was. I marked Region A. It does not ask me again upon insertion.
