Do you want to Play Blu-ray Discs with your new MacBook Air? Apple’s MacBook Air has been upgraded, not only with Intel’s latest 4th-Generation Core (Haswell) processor and its improved integrated graphics, but also with faster flash storage and next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi. The 22nm Haswell-architecture processor, in particular, is designed from the ground up to be power-frugal, which helps Apple squeeze what it claims is ‘all day’ battery life from the new MacBook Air range — 9 hours on the 11-inch model and 12 hours on the 13-inch model reviewed here. But MacBook Air don’t support to play Blu-ray movies.
Today, I would like to introduce a new way to play your Blu-ray disc or BD ISO on Macbook Air. And what you need is a kind of third-party software named MacBook Air Blu-ray Player from UFUSoft which is specially designed for Macbook Air.
Here I list hardware and software needed for playing Blu-ray on Macbook Air, hoping to help those that want to play Blu-ray Disc from Macbook Air.
An external Blu-ray disc drive and be sure the USB is 2.0 or above.
The most convenient way to play Blu-ray on Macbook Air is to use a program like UFUSoft Macbook Air Blu-ray Player. It is such a reliable software which can port DTS5.1 for Mac initially in the world. It also allows you to play AVCHD video and a large number of other multimedia files, including WMV, MPEG, MP4, MTS, MKV, FLV, AVI, etc.
First of all, you should make sure your MacBook Air is connected to the network.
Step One: Connect Blu-ray driver
You have to have an external bluray driver. Connect it to Macbook Air via USB interface.
Step Two: Download UFUSoft MacBook Air Blu-ray Player
Download the MacBook Air Blu-ray Player and install it at once.
Step Three: Play Blu-ray movies
1) Run UFUSoft MacBook Air 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 ISO files or videos in other media formats.
I think it would be the simplest way to lead your MacBook Air to the extremely Blu-ray world.
