    I was wondering if DVDs that state they are region "0" can be played on a
    DVD Player that plays region "1". Sellers of DVDs indicate that "0" can be
    played by any Player. Can anyone comment on this

    Region "0" is region-free and can be played by all regional settings.

    Yes, they can.
    Technically speaking, there is no "Region 0". It's a term used by the
    industry to indicate DVDs that are coded to play in all regions.

    As long as your equipment can cope with NTSC/PAL issue if necessary, then
    yes, region "0", which is really all regions is playable in all players. In
    NA, you need special displays to deal with PAL though, Europe and Australia
    tend to have equipemtn that can deal with NTSC and PAL, but NA is purely
    NTSC unless you buy special equipment to handle the conversion to NTSC on
    the fly.
