Blu Ray and Mac just go together don’t they? Well to take advantage of having a Blu-Ray Drive on your Macbook, Powerbook, Air, or G5 you need the best software to go along with it. We have been steadily testing the latest Blu-Ray applications for the Mac and list the easiest and best offerings to date here.
Steve Jobs has already stated that Apple will not support Blu-Ray. By this it sounds like that they will not be including Blu Ray drives in their hardware lineup. This does not mean that Blu Ray will not be supported at all in OSX. In fact you can still hook up a Firewire or USB 2.0 BD Burner to get your 1080p fix on Mac hardware. Once this is in place though you will more than likely want to take advantage of this drive and to do that you will need the right software to make it work. Listed below is the current Mac supported Blu-Ray software that we have reviewed so far..

The main reason you would rip a Blu Ray disc is to get the Video/Audio content onto your hard drive so you can do what you want with it because you can’t work with content on a physical blu ray disc. Traditional copying from the mounted drive won’t work because most Blu Ray discs have a copy prevention layer added to the disc. Blu Ray Rippers are also know to have a converter built in, so once the disc is ripped you can then convert it to a more useable format such as MP4 the standard video file for Apple devices like the iPod, iPad, iPhone.
