It should, depending on the software used, the player/recorder isn't fussy

Here is some info on DVD regions that I found. I think it applies to DVD player software on Mac.

---

In order for you to view a DVD's content, the region code on the DVD and the region code for DVD Player must be the same. Your DVD drive is automatically set to a region code the first time you play a coded DVD. If the region code for a DVD does not match the current region code for DVD Player, a dialog appears for you to change the code for DVD Player. You can set the region code for DVD Player only five times (including the original setting). The fifth time you change the code, it will be permanently set. DVD discs can be played in any region, and are sometimes referred to as having region code 0. These discs can be played regardless of the region to which DVD Player is set.

Region assignments: 0 - Any region; 1- Canada, the United States, and U.S. territories; 2 - Europe, Western Asia, Northern Africa, South Africa, and Japan; 3 - Southeast Asia; 4 - Mexico, Central and South America, and the South Pacific (including Australia); 5 - Africa, North and South Asia; 6 - China.
