For what ever reason, Mac users have pretty much been left out of the game when it comes to playing Blu-ray titles, but not any more thanks to MacGo software that allows Macs to finally get in on the Blu-ray game.
Yes, you could always buy an external blu-ray player for the Mac, but without the software to run it, what's the point? As MacGo says:
"Mac Blu-ray Player is the first universal media player for Mac&PC in the world. It can not only play blu-ray HD movies on Mac or PC, but support any movie, video, audio, music and photo you have ever seen.Bring your PC or Mac with the most popular Blu-ray HD video enjoyment, and this is what Mac Blu-ray Player can do."
MacGo claims perfect support for Blu-ray decryption and that it is capable of removing AACS, BD+ without any limitation. They also claim that it offers outstanding universal performance, and is capable of playing anything including: movies, video, audio, music and photos, as well as offering hardware acceleration. All media formats are supported, including: VideoCD, Mov., MKV, FLV, WMV, MPEG, RMVB, MP3, WMA, AAC, AC3, MP4 and more!
Steve Jobs once called Blu-ray a "bag of hurt", but now if your hurting from not being able to play Blu-ray movies or what have you on your precious Mac, well now you finally can. A life-time license can be had for only $39.95 U.S. for what they describe as being the best and most unique Mac blu-ray player in the world, which, by the way, also comes with a free 3 month trial period, so you can try it, before you buy it.
In conclusion, even though it would be great if Apple actually bundled its own Blu-ray unit and and the software to go with it, until it does (which is very doubtful) we Mac users at least don't have to be left out in the cold anymore when it comes to blu-ray, which I happen to think is pretty hot!
And that's my 2 cents 4 this Friday, July 08, 2011
