Mac Blu-ray Player for Mac

CNET Editors' review

If you have a Blu-ray player and don't want to or can't use a native Mac media player app, Mac Blu-ray Player can be used to view Blu-rays in addition to DVDs, but some may find the price tag for the full version too high.

The installation and setup of a free trial version of Mac Blu-ray Player for Mac went smoothly. The initial menus are intuitive and well-designed. The trial version will only function a limited number of times, however, before the user must buy the full version at $59.95. Technical support is available, and the developer's Web site is user-friendly. After we inserted a disc, the program recognized and started playing it quickly and cleanly. Menus for controlling the movie playback are easy to locate and use. In addition to DVDs and Blu-rays, the player can handle several other video file formats and those for audio. The program purports to allow users to include their own subtitles, though we didn't test this.

While Mac Blu-ray Player is well-designed and functional, those looking for a simple disc player app may find its high price off-putting. However, if you have an external Blu-ray player and your Mac does not have native software to accomodate it, this program may be an attractive option.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Mac Blu-ray Player for Mac 2.7.6.

    "A wonderful Blu-ray Player are getting better!"

    April 7, 2014  |   By kaitly

    Version: Mac Blu-ray Player 2.10.2

    Pros

    Recently, when I surf on the internet, I saw the update information about Macgo Mac Blu-ray Player that "Fixed the blank screen problem of the old Mac graphics". It's a extremely exciting news, so rapidly updated my Macgo Mac Blu-ray Player to the new version 2.10.2. And my old Mac graphics truly could playback. Brought me a delighted day!!!

    Cons

    ok. It's a suitable Blu-ray Player with me.

    "Worst support and customer service EVER!"

    March 31, 2014  |   By froilo01

    Version: Mac Blu-ray Player 2.10.2

    Pros

    It worked ok during the trial version read ALL my Blu Rays

    Cons

    Once I purchased, got my serial code (this took FOREVER) and activated the player NO blu rays could be seen any more!. Error message ALL the time!

    Summary

    Purchased this product, after testing the trial version with no problems, when got the license and activated the player, NO blu rays could be read no more, tried all solutions posted in their support page and none worked. Finally I wrote to their "support" team, and now has been 4 days, 3 emails and absolutely NO answer!. I paid for a product I can't use and their customer and support team don't care and are the worst I ever seen!. I truly DON'T recommend getting this product!.

    "Recent updates are very practical and gratifying."

    January 9, 2014  |   By Looooooois

    Version: Mac Blu-ray Player 2.9.7

    Pros

    The 2.9.6 version is gratifying for it came up with this idea of auto update and auto start; I tried the function when I was updating it to the 2.9.7 and found that very easy;All I did was to click "auto update", when the downloading was finished, another click at "Install and relaunch" button, then things were all settled,saved a lot of work this time.That's really practical for users like me.

    Cons

    Autoplay on CD and DVD were disabled, I don't understand...What's the point?

    Summary

    Recent updates are very practical and gratifying.

    Cons

    None so far.

    It brings me the extraordinary Blu-ray experience.

    "Available for the latest BD movie, very nice!"

    December 4, 2013  |   By EarlaFern

    Version: Mac Blu-ray Player 2.9.3

    Pros

    I purchased this unit even though there were no product reviews at the time of my purchase. I wanted to take the chance, and I'm glad I did. The blue ray discs load very quickly and the picture quality is amazing. Several days ago I updated to 2.9.3 which brings me much more playable Blu-ray discs such as "Breaking Bad". I highly recommend this very reasonably priced player.

    Cons

    I hope it could read Blu-ray menu for all the Disc.

    Summary

    Overall it is a big improvement than any other players.

    "Brought me the real movie life."

    December 4, 2013  |   By sheryylcrow

    Version: Mac Blu-ray Player 2.9.3

    Pros

    With the high definition of videos, I enjoy the life I want and whenever I see the movies, the tiredness and tediousness will get away from me, it's really an excellent way for relaxing after the tiring life.

    Cons

    Hard to say something.

    Summary

    It's really superb software that can meet our need of enjoying movies.

    "This is definitely what I need."

    December 4, 2013  |   By RandyWho

    Version: Mac Blu-ray Player 2.9.3

    Pros

    This time the 2.9.3 really did a good job since more excellent movies are playable on it, such as Dexter and Fast & Furious 6,I think this means something to me, and Paul Walker used to be my favorite actor... Anyway, may Paul rest in peace and heaven.

    Cons

    I think Mac Blu-ray Player can do better and better.

    Summary

    This is definitely what I need.
