    Hi,
    I am new to the mac world and am still learning lots of things and i have a couple questions. I have a 2014 mac pro 2.2Gh I7 and I am getting ready to go on deployment soon so I will have my computer but no internet for the next couple months. I bought a lg BP50NB40 blue-ray player/writer and was told to buy toast 12 titanium to play commercial blue-rays. Well I did all this and it will not work, does this software not support playing these types of disks or is it mainly a burner and screen shot recorder?

    AFAIK Toast is only useful for burning Blu-Rays.

    Perhaps you should've googled this before going out and getting it.

    I tried and it said plays blue-rays it just didn't specify only burned blue-rays not commercial. Does anyone recommend a decent software that doesn't require a constant internet connection?

    That's what I use... works really well too. I won't have a need for it much longer though... in the process of going all digital with my movie library.

    It looks like that player, like MacGo, requires an Internet connection.

    According to the MacGo FAQ, the connection requirement is something that they want to get rid of but haven't done yet.

    Why not rip the BR discs you obviously have to digital files and take/play them that way?

    The MacGo player only needs an internet connection the first time you load a disc if it doesn't have the key for it already. After you play the disc once, you should be good to play offline. That's actually true of most PC players.

    Thanks, I test it. You are right.
    Maybe there is some cache the first time loading disc. I found some info from Preferences - Blu-ray - Cache.
