Play Blu-ray on Mac Answered

I wonder how do you guys play Blu-ray on Mac? It's a big trouble to me for a long time. I know Mac doesn't play Blu-ray but I believe there must be some other ways to do that.

Hi DevinMariah. It's quite easy to play blu-ray mivies.

In order to play Blu-ray legally on a Mac, you’ll need to purchase a software license. I use the first Mac Blu-ray Player. It could smoothly play my Blu-ray discs and can satisfy just about every need you could possibly have in a Blu-ray Player.

besides,You have to use external Blu-ray driver like models from Buffalo, Samsung, LG, ASUS and Sony and a player. Unlike our main pick, the Samsung SE-506CB does not come with a Y-cable. The included 15-inch USB 2.0 cable is a bit longer than the Buffalo’s, but shorter than the other models we considered.

Nope. Without the hardware to read the disk you can't play it.

You mean I need Blu-ray player hardware to make this happen? What if I have a BD drive?

You may have a Blue Ray player but you won't be able to install it and get adequate drivers so the Mac can use it.

From what I gather blue ray is a waste. Between drm and the fact most of the video is not blueray quality,I would wait.
