“I got my new Mac mini and want to construct my own home theater. I checked on the internet that there are several Mac Blu ray Player software available on Mac. So do they works fine and what Blu ray software or drive should i use?”
The Mac Mini from Apple is a low-cost and very compact personal computer that runs the Mac OS X operating system and is sold without a display, keyboard, or mouse. The Mac mini comes with a G4 processor, up to 1 GB of memory, a 40 or 80 GB hard drive, USB and/or Firewire ports, modem and Ethernet connections, and a dedicated graphics processor. It also comes loaded with the kinds of applications Apple believes most home users will want: a Web browser, e-mail client, multimedia creation and management, calendar and address book, Quicken, and an easy way to download contacts to a cell phone or iPod. Options include the ability to burn DVDs, attach to a wireless network, or use Bluetooth for wireless keyboards and mice. But Apple never makes its computer support Blu ray playback naturally. A dedicated Blu Ray player device isn’t the only way for Mac Mini users to watch high definition movies – there is also other solution available now for your playback Blu ray disc/folder or BD ISO on Mac Mini directly.
Today, I would like to introduce this new way to play your Blu ray disc/folder or BD ISO on Mac Mini. And what you need is a kind of third-party software named UFUSoft Mac Mini Blu ray Player Software which is specially designed for Mac Mini.
UFUSoft Mac Mini Blu ray Player Software
A Blu ray drive (external: Samsung SE-506AB)
Step One: Connect Blu ray driver
You have to have an external bluray driver. Connect it to Mac Mini via USB interface
Step Two: Download UFUSoft Mac Mini Blu ray Player
Download the Mac Mini Blu ray Player and install it at once.
Step Three: Play Blu ray disc movies
1) Run Mac Mini Blu ray Player
2) Insert the Blu ray disc into driver
3) Open the Blu ray disc. Some Blu ray discs will be launched automatically, others can be opened by open buttons.
There are two open buttons: “Open File” and “Open Disc”.
When you play BD, just click on the ‘Open Disc’ button and select the BD in the pop-up dialogue. After a couple seconds of loading, you can enjoy the Blu ray movies on Mac freely. Otherwise, you can press “Open File” button to play Blu ray folder, blu ray ISO files or videos on Mac Mini in other media formats.
I think it would be the simplest way to lead your Mac Mini to the extremely Blu ray world.
