    This might have been answered before, but looking for a quick and easy response. Currently I'm wondering what anyone has been doing in terms of playing back .m2ts files through their mac and or what programs they might be using? When ripping a blu-ray, the structure is far different from standard def DVD structure (VOB files) which VLC has no problem playing back when dragging the VIDEO_TS folder to it. In terms of playing back the Blu-Ray folder structure however, all the content seems to be contained to the "STREAM" folder containing .m2ts files which VLC sometimes chokes up on.

    I know certain windows programs such as Cyberlink Power DVD will do some playback - but I'm trying to avoid windows as much as possible these days around and wondering what anyone might have in terms of suggestion for getting this to playback? Sometimes I can play the .m2ts in VLC with the audio, but after one stops I have to start up the next one. Ideally it would be great if I could just play the ripped disk as is and was wondering if anyone knew of any work arounds?

    On this forum they will probably assume you are a durty pi_rate so they won't respond with any help… but I'm currently on the same page as you.
    As far as I know, with out testing it yet, the Roxio program "Popcorn" will allow you to playback the largest m2ts file, which is usually the feature.
    No menus, previews, or ability to re-encode, but you get to watch the vid.
