Need to play Blu-ray discs on your iMac or Mac book? Now get the
best and proper Mac Blu-ray player software here to freely play Blu-ray movies on Mac.
Out of the box, your Mac can do almost anything, but playing Blu-ray movies isn’t one of them. Not only do Macs not ship with Blu-ray playback software built in, but Apple still doesn’t make a drive capable of reading Blu-ray discs. Fortunately, with a little inexpensive hardware and software, you can turn your Mac into an awesome Blu-ray player.
To play Blu-ray movies on your Mac, you’ll first need a drive that can read the discs. Apple’s SuperDrive won’t do it, but there are plenty of good third-party options that’ll do the job. There are plenty of compact, affordable choices for this in the sub-$50 range that connect via USB.

With the release of Macgo’s Mac Blu-ray Player, watching a Blu-ray disc on a Mac is finally possible. Macgo has recently released the world’s very first Blu-ray disc player that works for Mac as well as PC. Mac users can now enjoy Blu-ray contents right on their Mac screens with this Mac Blu-ray Player. Other than Blu-ray playback, the universal Mac Blu-ray Player also supports DVD, VideoCD, MOV, MKV, AVI, FLV, WMV, MP4, MPEG, RMVB, MP3, WMA, AAC, AC3 formats.
The Macgo Mac Blu-ray Player claims it”can decrypt any bluray discs successfully”. However, some testings indicates that the app is “not-ready-for-prime-time software” due to poor decryption of Blu-ray AACS and BD+ copy-protections.
Anyway, you can test and see how the Mac Blu-ray player performs by yourself- it offers 3 months’ trial. Download a trial of the Macgo Mac Blu-ray Player from HERE.
Some helpful notes for playing a Blu-ray Disc on Mac OS:
1. In order to watch Blu-ray movies on Mac, you need to be connected the Internet so that the software can decode the copy-protection used on the discs.
2. A Mac computer is not equipped with Blu-ray Disc drive, and you have to hook up an External Blu-ray Disc Drive for Mac
3. It is not really a very good idea to play Blu-ray Disc on Mac, as you won’t get 1080p view experience or HD audio effects on a Mac computer. A much better way is ripping Blu-ray contents to Mac HDD with 5.1 sound and setting up a Mac Mini Media Center with HDTV and surround sound system to fully enjoy Blu-ray 1080p video and 5.1 audio.
