    I just noticed this in the CD/DVD section in System Preferences. Is this something new or have I over looked this? This adds further convince to my internal blu-ray drive I installed.

    Even Mac OS X 10.6 had drivers to support BDs. Probably the next external Apple drive supports BDs.

    I understand this as I have been using blu ray since 10.7, but I believe this is the first time I have seen this menu option. If so then this would be a great indicator of Apple reliving the "bag of hurt."

    It is definitely a new menu option - not present in 10.8.

    DVD Player is still version 5.6 without any new playback support, right?

    Yep, it's a new option added in 10.8.4. It's not really that much use to me as I have only really burned a couple of BRD's But good to see at least the beginnings of Blu Ray support from Apple.

    I don't see it in 10.8.4 - but my Mac only has a SuperDrive (and I never connected an external BlueRay drive).

    It only appears when a BD drive is attached.

    Thanks for the replies, perhaps I had over looked this feature in 10.8.4
