How Do you Play a Blu-ray on Mac

When it comes to Blu-ray playback, we used to play it on TV, by inserting a disc into a Blu-ray player connected with TV.

And now people are more willing to watch Blu-ray moives on portable devices such as Mac computer, However, Apple never support Blu-ray as Steve Jobs referred to Blu-ray as “a bag of hurt” due to the complex licensing surrounding the high-definition video format. (The company can already sell you HD movies and TV shows directly from the iTunes Store, so why would Apple want to embrace Blu-ray?)

Apple’s DVD Player software does not work with Blu-ray, so you will need a third party app to use as a player. Apple does not make an Apple-branded Blu-ray player, but just about any USB Blu-ray drive will work on a Mac. It will plug and play. All drivers are already included with macOS.
