    I expect you'd need a properly licensed app that can play blu ray stuff. All that encryption needs licenses not just any software can play it. Apple certainly doesn't provide for such. Why should it?
    I read VLC 2.0 will bring a bluray lib. No Idea how they do it because I doubt they can afford the real deal. You probably just need to install some app that can play blu rays and brings all the required licenses/cetificates and what not to decrypt those disc.
    It is not done with a codec in blu ray the decryption is the biggest problem.
