KMPlayer is a freeware which can play multimedia files because of own internal Codec. From KMPlayer Wikipedia, it supports 3D format (side by side, top and bottom) videos, unprotected Blu-Ray&DVD discs, AVI, WMV, MKV, MP4, etc. And it enables us to cope with plenty of subtitles, capture screenshots, extract audio as you prefer.

KMPlayer is so powerful that I try my best to download KMPlayer for Mac but fail to get it. In fact, the KMPlayer official website doesn't offer KMPlayer for Mac. Why do I only have eyes for KMPlayer? Because it can play Blu-Ray & DVD without DRM protection and variety of media formats on pc.

So I have to change my mind. In this guide, I make 3 types of solution to achieve my goal that I can play videos and BD & DVD on my Mac.

Solution 1: free KMPlayer alternative on Mac

Solution 2: commercial Mac Blu-Ray Player ($39.95)

Solution 3: convert protected Blu-Ray & DVD discs to Mac (QuickTime + Imelfin Blu-Ray Ripper) ($39.99)

Solution 1: KMPlayer alternative on Mac

VLC is freeware and open source cross-platform multimedia player which supports Mac OSX, Windows, Linux, etc. It's an ideal KMPlayer for Mac alternative. Similarly, it supports Blu-Ray & DVD discs playback with libbluray and libdvdcss library. It can also do streaming and media conversion. But this is not the way once and for all. When I refer to the method 1(VLC to play encrypted Blu-Ray), it always prompt this error dialog "This Blu-Ray Disc needs a library for AACS decoding, and your system does not have it". So far I have not got the exact answer to repair. Moreover, VLC doesn't support Blu-Ray menus and you have to select title to play manually.

Solution 2: commercial Mac Blu-Ray player

When Steve Jobs was asked why no Blu-Ray for Macs, he answered "Blu-ray is a bag of hurt". At the same time, I almost can't find a media player which supports both media files and Blu-Ray discs on Mac OSX. The appearance of Mac Blu-Ray player makes my eyes lit up. It offers Blu-Ray discs & DVDs playback functionality on Mac and Window. Although Mac Blu-Ray Player can play encrypted Blu-Ray discs on Mac, it can't decrypt Blu-Ray discs protection and do media conversion. Therefore Blu-Ray discs still are restricted in the scope of specific use. Regretfully, we can't play Blu-Ray discs in my iOS devices or stream them to iTunes library.
