Hi, I want to project a Region 1 DVD video as a background visual at a party, but the venue only has a VGA cable connecting to the in-house projector. Can anyone advise on a suitable player that is really simple to use that would work with this setup? Thanks

A laptop with vga out and built in dvd player should do the job. It might ask you to set the region, but it used to be the case that you could change the region 5 times before it would 'stick'.

There are some Skyworth dvd players that had a vga out but they're probably going to be hard to find now. I still have one in the loft somewhere...

I can't vouch for it in any way, but it does have vga out so in theory it should be able to do what you want.
