How to Play Blu-ray Videos & HD Movies on Windows (10) and Mac

Blu-ray is designed to store HD videos in resolution like 1080p, and that's why we need it. But as HD/4K/8K videos roll out on the internet, Blu-ray is really going to lose its status. The saving grace of this Blu-ray format gradually falls into concrete storage/collection of videos/music and photos against Cloud storage. But anyways, as a synonym for HD videos and a way of storing, Blu-ray will last for quite a long time and there are a million ways for you to play Blu-ray videos. Among them, the best assistant up to this task that we also strongly recommend is 5KPlayer.

Play Blu-ray video on Windows/Mac with Blu-ray discs

Play Blu-ray video on Mac Computer

For Mac with optical drive:

*You can either resort to Blu-ray Software like Mac Blu-ray player or Blufab Media Player to directly play the Blu-ray video discs.
*Or, rip a Blu-ray to a folder, then play the folder with a free Blu-ray video player like 5KPlayer/VLC.
Note: Since Blu-ray decoders are not free, a Blu-ray disc player can hardly be absolutely robust and free at the same time.
So, if you want to use VLC for free Blu-ray playback, you may have to download and place the AACS and BD+ DRM libraries and keys, which won't work for all Blu-ray discs.

For Mac without optical drive:

Direct playback a Blu-ray disc is out of the question. So you can:
*Get an AVCHD Blu-ray video copy from online;
*Or rip the disc on a Windows PC with optical drive and then play or AirPlay the content from Windows to Mac with 5KPlayer;
*Or get the hardware –purchase an external drive with Blu-ray support (FYI: a bit expensive way);

Play Blu-ray video on Windows (8/10) PC

1. Check if your Windows 8/10 PC really cannot play DVDs;
The boxed Windows 8/10 laptop or desktop computer will almost certainly have DVD playback software pre-loaded by the manufacturer. If you find it plays DVDs well, then the only thing you need is to find a Blu-ray media player or a Blu-ray ripper, like Blu Ray Player for Windows or WinX DVD ripper.

2. Make use of your XBOX to play Blu-ray video discs.
Set up and install the Blu-ray & DVD player app on Xbox One and insert the Blu-ray discs and select Blu-ray player on the home screen.

5KPlayer really interprets the future trends of high res video presenting. If anyone dares to tell you that HD videos viewed on the finest Retina tablet display or LCD flat screen can't come close to a Blu-ray, then either the HD content is a fake one or he is lying!
