The player I use has an embedded "region code" which must match the code on
each DVD disk you attempt to play on it.  For example, North America is
region 1.  So, regardless of the capability of the underlying technology,
apparently some anti-piracy or other licensing/marketing requirements have
prevented the average consumer from doing the kind of thing you ask about.

Jim
