Does anyone know of a DVD player that will allow multi-region media to play?

eBay is your friend!  Very quick search showed several multi region multi format (NTSC/PAL) players for around $30.

And yet I thought there weren't any around.  The Samsung that I researched was supposed to be multi region. I bought it and it turned out to be bad info.  Confirmed with Samsung that there was no way to switch to PAL format.

Bought this Panasonic player in 2016 and no complaints.  Upconverts DVDs to 1080p nicely.  The price remains the same now as when I purchased.  Internal automatic PAL/NTSC switching.  If you have SECAM discs (France and former French colonies in Africa plus Russia and most of the former Soviet bloc countries), it does take a certain button push sequence on the remote control upon power up.  However the documentation is first rate.  And their customer service is also first rate if you get stuck.

(full disclosure:  I have no connection at all with International Video & Electronics nor Panasonic)

I got one from B&H Photo in New York.  That one only had composite video outputs, but that was several years ago.  If you call them, I am sure they can help.

The DVD drive in my PC plays discs from anywhere in the world. I have bought DVDs from Japan, Australia, China, England and Germany. Every one plays perfectly and I did not buy any special software.
