Want to play a Blu-ray disc on your Mac but have no efficient Mac Blu-ray Player software? Don't worry, this article will give you the Best Mac Blu-ray Player and its alternative.
Blu-ray video is known for its excellent video quality and incredible capacity, and is favored by video fans around the globe. If you have many Blu-ray discs and want to play Blu-ray movies
on Mac with its stunning Rentia display, however, confused about how to do that. Well good news, you are in the right place!
It's been a while since Steve Jobs declared Blu-ray a "bag of hurt", and in the years since Apple has been uninterested in the Blu-ray disc format. Then, “Will Mac ever support Blu-ray?” while Mac users look forward to any positive news.
So a number of different Blu-ray playback software options for Mac users come, and among which, Macgo has already changed history. 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.
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.
4. Want to backup Blu-ray to Mac losslessly? Here ByteCopy for Mac is your best tool, it not only copy BD/DVD to MKV, but also allows for transcoding. The best part is that it transcodes video stream, audio track and subtitle stream separately. You can keep original video quality and meanwhile convert the TrueHD audio to Dolby Digital 5.1 audio when/if your device does not support 7.1 channels, or shrink the BD contents to videos with lower bitrate to ensure they are played properly on a slow computer or older media player.
Like BDMagic for Mac, the ByteCopy for Mac is also easy of use. Converting a DVD/ Blu-ray Disc is a simple 3-step process. And you can make it a 2-step process by a settled preference.
