Default Oppo players are not region free.

Although the OPPO players support PAL, they are not region free. They can, however, be made region free with a simple hack:
1. Press Setup.
2. Press "9210" in quick succession. A new window should appear.
3. Press "0" to set the Region to R0.
4. Press Setup to exit.
The player is now region free.

There is also a firmware modification which removes the CSS encryption and HDCP compliance from some players. This allows them to play upconverted, CSS encrypted content over component output, and allows you to play on non HDCP compliant displays such as PC monitors.
