“I am trying to play my The Martian BluRay DVD’s on my MacBook Pro – but, it’s not playing, nothing is coming up. Anyone know how to play BluRay on a MacBook? Is it even possible?”

When people have smartphone, tablet, TV, PC, laptop, game console at the same time, Blu-ray playing is not limited to Blu-ray Player any more. Just like the need in the above question, some want to watch Blu-ray movies on MacBook Pro. However, MacBook Pro has DVD drive but no Blu-ray drive, so you can play DVD on MacBook Pro directly but can’t play Blu-ray discs on MacBook Pro directly. To play Blu-ray on MacBook Pro, you need an external Blu-ray player (the built-in SuperDrive does not support Blu-ray) and a Blu-ray player (such as Mac Blu-ray Player ). Then you can play Blu-ray discs on your Mac. 

Another way to view Blu-ray on MacBook Pro is to rip Blu-ray on Mac drive. Literally,  ripping Blu-ray to hard drive on Mac means that you need to extract the main title from Blu-ray discs by bypassing the encryption and then save the content to a digital file that your media player on MacBook Pro can support. This behavior needs a Blu-ray Ripper<Mac Blu-ray Ripper vs. Mac Blu-ray Copier>

Searching trough a search engine, using key words like BluRay, bluray copy, bluray ripper, rip bluray   to file, you can find a top-ranked application - Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac /Windows. This Blu-ray Ripper/Copier can help you rip the Blu-rays and copy them as video files, in order to be easily played back with your MacBook Pro.

What’s more, as the best Blu-ray Ripper, firstly, it  can 1:1 entire copy Blu-ray with original video structure or copy Blu-ray to M2TS only preserving the Blu-ray movie main title. Secondly, it can rip Blu-ray to H.265, M3U8, MP4, AVI, etc for other media player, portable devices, game consles playing.  Thirdly, it can backup Blu-ray to lossless MKV with multiple subtitle/audio streaming and all chapter markers then stream the Blu-ray movies with VLC on MacBook Pro with multitrack audio/subtitle.

Pavtube ByteCopy offers you hundreds of output video formats. If you plan to play Blu-ray movies with QuickTime on MacBook Pro, you can choose the preset for QuickTime from “QuickTime” profile. Or you can choose H.264 HD MP4 format as the output format which can also be played on your iPhone SE, iPad Pro 9.7, iPad Air 3.

Tip: Some models of MacBook Pro support 1880p, even 2160p resolution. But here, we suggest you to choose 1080p or 720p because lower resolution can save the charge and storage space so that you can store more Blu-ray movies on MacBook Pro to watch in the planes, on trains, in the airports.
