do you have a bluray drive in your mac anyway? thought they only came with dvd drives.

without a bluray drive to actually read the bluray disks you won't be able to play blurays anyway no matter what software player you use.

 

personally not having a mac and never wanting to spend money on software i'd first try vlc player because it can play anything in my experience even blurays with a bit of work.

 

some links you may find useful.

I went through trying to find a download  player for my Bluray drive with Windows, gave up and went  Cyberlink PowerDVD15. I would not even bother trying to find a free player, IMO not worth the hassle, one free player I found, loaded up my computer with a bunch of spyware, that took forever to get rid of, finally just did a clean install.

well i know for a fact vlc can play blurays on linux because i've done it, so don't see why it won't play them on any other os, yes it can be a hassle to get working because if memory serves i had to find the vuks for the bluray's and add them to a file but if you're going to pay for software then there are 2 i'd recommend.

 

powerdvd that edw6698 suggested :- https://www.cyberlin...en_US.html?&r=1

or

anydvd (highly recommend by my mate john44. it's not actually a player but decrypts the blurays so you can do things like watch them with other players. etc..) :- https://www.redfox.bz/en/anydvdhd.html

 

only problem is i don't think either of those 2 make a mac version so they can only be used with windows machines, but at least with anydvd you can rip the movies to hard drive and then transfer them to your mac to watch, not sure about powerdvd because i can't remember ever using it personally but think it just plays them. (trial them first and see if they are what you need/want.)
