“I have a iMac desk top with Mac OS X (10.8) operating system and an external Blu-ray drive and i want to buy a Blu-ray Player Software for it. So the question is what Blu-ray software should I purchase and how could I watch Blu-ray on my iMac?” The iMac is a range of all-in-one Macintosh desktop computers designed and built by Apple Inc, features an ultrathin all-in-one design, beautiful widescreen display, the
latest processors and graphics, and advanced storage options. The iMac has no built-in support for Blu-ray discs. Blu-ray players use a different type of laser than CDs and DVDs, and data is stored more compactly. The differences are internal, so placing a Blu-ray disc in your iMac will not damage the drive, but it also won’t allow you to view your movie.
Despite a lack of Blu-ray drive and native blu-ray playback support, you can still play Blu-ray movies on iMac. Today, I would like to introduce a new way to play your Blu-ray on Macbook. And what you need is a kind of third-party software named UFUSoft iMac Blu-ray Player Software which is specially designed for iMac.
How to Play Blu-ray Disc, Blu-ray ISO file, or BDMV folder on iMac by iMac Blu-ray Player software?
1. iMac (iMac G3/G4/G5 included)
2. An internal or external Blu-ray drive: USB ≥ 2.0 or FireWire ≥ 400.
3. Blu-ray Player software(UFUSoft iMac Blu-ray Player): It is such a reliable software which can port DTS5.1 for Mac initially in the world. It also allows you to play AVCHD video and a large number of other multimedia files, including WMV, MPEG, MP4, MTS, MKV, FLV, AVI, etc.
4. Internet connection.
5. Blu-ray discs (BD).
Step One: Connect Blu-ray driver
You have to have an external bluray driver. Connect it to iMac via USB interface
Step Two: Run iMac Blu-ray Player
After confirming your hardware matches the requirements above, simple install iMac Blu-ray Player and insert your disc in the drive, and this program will play automatically..
Step Three: Play Blu-ray movies
Open the Blu-ray disc. Some Blu-ray discs will be launched automatically, others can be opened by open buttons.
There are two open buttons: “Open File” and “Open Disc”.
When you play Blu-ray disc, just click on the ‘Open Disc’ button and select the Blu-ray disc in the pop-up dialogue. After a couple seconds of loading, you can enjoy the Blu-ray movies on iMac freely. Otherwise, you can press “Open File” button to play Blu-ray ISO files or videos on iMac in other media formats.
I think it would be the simplest way to lead your iMac to the extremely Blu-ray world.
