DVD links & information

This page contains links and information I have found useful. Naturally, this is only a small subset of all the information available on WWW. If you find this useful, or know of a link/site that might be useful, let me know by sending me e-mail.

I have tried to include information about region one (R1) and region two (R2) DVD discs. Discs that work in all regions (R0) are not mentioned separately, but are implicitly included whenever either region is mentioned.

Note also, that region 2 titles are not a subset of region 1 titles (or vice versa).
