Editors' Review

Working with different types of movie files and disc formats, including Blu-ray, can be a challenge using native Mac programs. Aurora Blu-ray Player for Mac allows users to play movie files, DVDs, and Blu-rays from one application with good quality.

Available as a free trial version that places a watermark on Blu-ray playback, the full, unrestricted version costs $39.95. The trial version allows unrestricted use of movie files and DVDs. While the program only took up approximately 30MB of space, the download and installation took approximately 30 minutes, despite the high-speed Internet connection used. Once this completed, the actual installation and setup were accomplished cleanly. The user is prompted to enter an email address to purchase the full version, but can cancel this option to work with the trial version. Aurora Blu-ray Player for Mac did not have any obvious instructions, but there was some technical support available for updates. The program did have an easy-to-use interface similar to other player applications. Users can clearly select from files or discs to be read and the buttons for each function are clearly labeled with simple graphics. When we selected movie files, the playback began quickly and the video quality was good. Similar results were obtained using a DVD. The buttons available for play, pause, fast-forward, and back were well placed, as was the video slider showing the time played and remaining.

For those seeking playback capabilities for multiple types of video media, including Blu-ray, Aurora Blu-ray Player for Mac is simple to use and plays videos well.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Aurora Blu-ray Player for Mac 2.11.7.
