I'm looking for a DVD player which is region-free and will play discs from any region, as well as allowing me to skip unskippable titles (usually ads). Like VLC Media player on PC can do, but I'm looking for a standalone DVD player.
Additionally, I'm looking for:
Ability to remember where I was when I turn it off, so that it can resume playing from the same point, and that it can do so reliably.
Bonus points if it does HDMI upscaling.
Price-wise, lower is better, and I'm also fine with flashing or hacking the firmware.
Are there any such players ? If so, any recommendations ?
