Short answer: You can't (with OSX).

 

Slightly longer answer: You need to run Windows on your Mac (there are several ways to do that) to playback Blu-ray Discs on a Mac.

I don't have a Blu-ray player so I don't know how. But you might Google for how other's play Blu-ray discs on Macs. Since this isn't copy protected I believe you can use VLC or the Toast Video Player application to open and play the .mts file that's inside the Blu-ray disc.

You can play your personnall Blu-Ray with VLC 1.1.5 without any problem on a Mac and you may need Snow Leopard also call Mac OS X 10.6.

 

1-Insert your personnal Blu-Ray disc in your Blu-Ray burner connected to your Mac ( Internal Blu-Ray burner or external work equally).

2-Launch VLC and after click File Open ; Navigate to the BDMV folder on your optical Blu-Ray disc ; Select-it then Click Open ; that all.

3-The Blu-Ray will start to play and you can even access the chapter markers if you have them , all do this all the time , no need for windows.

 

This will work only for non-commercial Blu-Ray but this workflow is good enough even at pro level , have a nice day wbmatv.

edbeta, and tsantee: can you confirm: none of those methods allow you access to the MENUs on Blu-ray discs? You can only play the individual video tracks.

You can play all or select chapters markers that the playback options in additions of various playback speeds and in Pro field i work that all they want often.

Some want an auto-play , some want access to specific scenes and some want a looping Blu-Ray but untill now all customers happy , its not for hollywood.

In addition the more and more clients ask for an Upload to a Website instead of a physical optical disc like an H264 file who play on almost anything today.
