Finally VLC brings us Blu-ray support on OSX.
Found this on 9to5Mac Mac
Finally VLC will have a Mac-centric interface. Its ability to play Blu-ray discs isn't new; it's been able to play them for quite some time.
Can't wait to try the new version!
VLC 2.0 arrives with support for a bag of hurt.
Just what we need.
One of my favorite things about VLC is how it's not iTunes... so with 2.0 they're trying to emulate it? Not sure this will end well.
Kudos for the BRD support... however, my hardware does not even think of supporting BRD, so the will without the means...
I read a similar article on a different page. I was under the impression that it was hardware that was limiting me from playing blu ray movies on my mac and not software. In addition to the VLC software and an external Blu Ray player, what kind of hardware will I need?
I just bought a i7 MBP with 8 GB of ram. Will this be Blu Ray compatible?
looks like the mac also gets a 64-bit version, as well as a powerpc version (according to the release candidate folder on the FTP site).
If you buy an external blue ray drive.
VLC 2.0 will support unencrypted Blu-ray Discs. You will not be able to natively play commercial Hollywood Blu-ray movies directly. You will still need to rip them using a utility (such as MakeMKV,) but now VLC will be able to play the decrypted full disk image
this is sweet!
Who need this.
Can you post where you found this? Need to update my article on this in case it's true.
So if I put in a bluray disk in my mbp, nothing will happen?
Not if it's the internal drive, no. You need a bluray drive for a bluray disc and right now the only ones you can use with a MacBook Pro are external.
Crap, I found it yesterday in a single article, but for now:
Changes between 1.1.13 and 2.0.0:
Ah, here it is: VLC 2.0 to ship this week with Blu-Ray support and a new UI
Note that it is perfectly possible, in theory, for someone to branch VLC to include libaacs, so that it could natively play encrypted Blu-ray Discs, but as far as I know, there is no "public" project of such.
sweet and finally, vlc is my favorite video player.
Actually, most sites have it wrong. There is no Blu-Ray for Mac right now.
This is the reality (and yes I have linked to the VLC developer who said the following, unlike the non-sourced and wrong info on 9to5 or macgasm):
Thanks. There actually is a way to play encrypted BRs in OS X as well, although it's a bit complicated.
I downloaded it yesterday... I like the new black UI.
I wish I could disable the Playlist though... I don't feel like seeing the whole list of movies I've seen recently.
Why does the icon need to be such an ugly construction cone.
Things that need fixed:
- If you have video to open in a separate window, closing the video window closes the playlist/library window too.
- Pressing CMD+1 doesn't make the video the original size, or only works occasionally.
- Video always appears off in the corner first, rather than always fitting into the top right corner, where it was last closed.
Performance wise, everything seems fine.
vlc 2.0 cant play greek subs
I've got a Macbook pro mid 2010 and i upgrade my vlc to 2.0 and it doesnt plays greek subs.anyone can help?
I tried 2.0 this morning. Not impressed at all. It's full of bugs, we can't hide the menus and playbacks buttons anymore and all the managing stuff is really annoying. Will go back to 1.xx tomorrow.
I like the icon. Sorry, but you're biased because you live in Quebec, where there are construction cones everywhere all year long.
