Have tried it on my all region DVD player but it goes not include
R4 is this available in uk ? Or is there no way to watch the DVD ?

Thanks

A multi-region DVD player should have no difficulty in playing an R4 disc
What make/model of player do you have?
Was it 'multi-region' as bought or did you use a specific hack for it?

Failing all else there are ways to copy the DVD using a PC and make it R2 (or region free) but maybe best not discussed here
Have a look here

The disk may be region coded but if the DVD player has really been set to multi region then it will ignore the region coding of the disk and play it.

The fact that it is not playing it suggests the player may not be multi region hacked after all. So what make and model of player do you have and how did you set it to multi region, did you have it done for you or buy the player as multi region?

Burning that file to a disc was the best thing I ever did to my LG player which is hardly any effort to be honest.
Once the players unlocked then its happy days as not restricted to just region 2 DVDs which are quite often poor in compassion to other regions versions.
