Would like to resurrect this post since I now have a portable Mac and there are very few other posts I can see about this. Have noticed Mr Hobbs recommended this in the another post which looks fine, but what software have people used to playback Blu-rays on OS X as it seems like this is the tricky part...
Yes, does seem to be the obvious one, but I've read numerous places saying it doesn't actually work (even recent posts in January 2012) and the only way others have got Blu-ray to work on the Mac so far is streaming to VLC via some hacking software (which doesn't sound ideal).
Wondered if there was anyone here who'd used the above or some other software and could confirm it actually does work?
External BD players/recorders for the Mac aren't very common that's for sure.
Wouldn't put me off buying any Mac though, as I have been doing for the last 20 years. Lacie do one and have been doing since BD was conceived, I don't like their hard drives but their recorders are very good imo.
