Which Mac Blu-ray Player Software?

Post by swampdaddy » Mon Aug 05, 2019 7:28 pm

I have the need to view my Blu-ray Disc backups such that I can see the menus as it would normally play in a regular BD player. Can you recommend a software player that will allow me to view my BD backups on my Mac?

I was demoing one application (Blu-ray Player Pro) which looked promising at first but some fail with the “Warning: Your Blu-ray Player requires an update message…"

How can this issue be avoided? Is there another software program that should work better?

BTW: I’m trying to play the movies entitled “Let’s Be Cops”

Thanks,

R

Don't you have a software player so that you can review the disc without the disc loaded?

BTW: my retail copy of Let's Be Cops does not show extras via hardware BD player.... but MakeMKV did reveal Special Features. Have you seen that before?

Thanks

You should never allow "official" software to update the firmware in your drives - you will lose capabilities if you do, because the "updates" are to enforce stricter standards.

No one was suggesting that--right?

I was just commenting on the message you got about updating... :)
