Every blue ray player can only play the region of disc that is from the same region as the player.
So A player from Malaysia can't play U.S. Discs as it only plays the region of discs that it was purchased from or any other supported region - said in the user manual / documentation.
So you can't play any blue ray discs in the usa that have a Region code protection and are set to the region of usa.
Its the same thing with DVD players, they also have this region protection.
"DVD region codes are a DRM technique designed to allow motion picture studios to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and, especially, price, according to the region. DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played. The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region."
