Apple’s Macintosh computers neither ship with built-in Blu-ray playback software nor internal Blu-ray drive. In order to play Blu-ray movies on a Mac legally, you will need to install a licensed Blu-ray Player for Mac. This post introduces one of the best Mac Blu-ray Player apps in 2015.
What’s the best Mac Blu-ray Player software in 2015?
Playing a Blu-ray disc on a Mac is not as easy as that on a Windows PC. Apple’s Mac computers won’t do it natively, but there are plenty of good third-party options that’ll do the job. The Mac Blu-ray Player is one of them.
To play Blu-ray movies on your Mac using the Mac Blu-ray Player, you’ll first need an external Blu-ray drive that can read your Blu-ray discs. Positioned as one of the best Mac Blu-ray Player apps in 2015, this app not only can play a Blu-ray disc inserted in the external Blu-ray drive, but also can read Blu-ray BDMV folders and Blu-ray ISO image files stored on your HDD.
Note: a virtual BD drive is required for playing Blu-ray ISO files.
With the external BD drive connected and the best 2015 Blu-ray Player for Mac installed, you are able to start up this app and click ‘Open Disc’ or ‘Open File’ to play your Blu-ray disc, Blu-ray folder or Blu-ray ISO file.
You can either choose any chapter as well as the audio track and subtitles or switch up your viewing mode on the fly.
