Trying to watch a Region 2 DVD on a MacBook Pro (USA)

I am trying to watch some Region 2 DVDs that I purchased while in France.

I was told that I could using VLC. Unfortunately, it did not work.

I do not want to change regions on my DVD drive, because you can only do it 5 times.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you for your help.

ps. I am using a MacBook Pro (early-2011). I have latest updates for everything.
