Sounds great. Is it region encoded?


I really don't know how to tell.


Well, is your player region free or European? If your player is not, and the disc plays, then the disc should be region free.

Re: MACK SENNETT COLLECTION COMMENTARY TRACKS and ERRATA

It's not a Blu-ray app you need, but a Blu-ray drive. Obviously, if you only

Re: THE MACK SENNETT BLU-RAY GIVEAWAY!

That link appears to be a link for a newsletter subscription,

Re: First review I've seen of "Chaplin at Keystone"

I have 1.1.4....maybe that's why? The option is one of the choices under playback.

Re: First review I've seen of "Chaplin at Keystone"

Also, the VLC player has a "Faster (Fine)" option, which speeds up 10% each time you choose it, so you can pick 110% speed, or 120% or so on, (with pitch-corrected sound), practically like hand-cranking a projector! A nice option. Just started looking at this Keystone set tonight, the pict...
