As we all know, the 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina has no build-in support for Blu-ray Disc. It was such a shame to waste this stunning Retina display. However, you can realize Blu-ray playback on MacBook Pro (with Retina display) by a third-party Blu-ray player software - MacBook Pro Retina Blu-ray Player. Here a detailed tutorial to tell you how to use it.
Preparations you need to do:
Free trial version of Macgo Mac Blu-ray Player Pro is now available on Macgo Download Center. You can also click here to download Mac El Capitan Blu-ray Player Pro, and then drag its icon to your Application folder.
After installing Mac El Capitan Blu-ray Player Pro, you can go to "Launchpad" and click Mac Blu-ray Player Pro.
a. Play a Blu-ray File
Click "Play" button and Select a Blu-ray file
If you want to play a Blu-ray file, just click on "Open File" on the main interface and choose the Blu-ray video you would like to watch from local media files, then click "Open".
Wait for a few seconds till the menu appears. Now you can choose where you want to start watch the movie in the full featured Blu-ray menu, you can choose which language you want to hear in "Audio" and what kind of language you want to see in "Subtitle", then you can directly press "Play Movie" and "Return" key to enjoy some Blu-ray time.
b. Play a Blu-ray Disc
Connect the Blu-ray drive with your Mac via USB cable.
Insert the Blu-ray disc you want to watch in the drive.
