Streaming DVD Using Apple TV

VLC

It seems like some people are having trouble playing DVD while connected to Apple TV. First of all, the default DVD player on your MacBook constantly asks you to change the region of the DVD. Secondly, the DVD is not playing and instead you can only see a checkered screen.
