Most of users have problems when playing BDMV files on Mac directly, so I decide to write this tutorial to help you solve this question in two positive solutions.
Solution One: Play BDMV Files on Mac With VLC
Q: “I have a Blu-Ray folder and I’ve tried opening the BDMV file in it with VLC but it doesn’t open it properly, displaying a menu and all that Jazz. Instead, it seems it just parses that file to play everything inside it willy nilly, choking on JAR files and other stuff.”
The BDMV files are not the Blu-ray first-level directory, if you want to play a Blu-ray movie with VLC on Mac for free, you need to use the “open BDMV folder” function in the open panel, and you need to choose the upper folder which contains the BDMV folder (with VLC 2.1.3). If you can still can’t handle solution one for free and don’t figure out the reasons, just turn to solution two, an easy and all-in-one way.
