Until recently Macs using Mac OS X could only author Blu-ray discs. A third party has now made a Mac OS X compatible Blu-ray Player, called Macgo.
Options for authoring Blu-ray have come from Apple in the form of Compressor in Final Cut Studio, and the third party Roxio Toast Titanium.
Blu-ray burners that work with them include ones sold by OtherWorld Computing and MCETechnologies and both can replace the built-in DVD burner of
most Macs. The built-in drive on Macs do not support Blu-ray as of 1/272/20122013.
Lastly, purchasing one of those two drive manufacturer's drives may enable Blu-ray playback under virtualization solutions. Check with the virtualized developer and the drive manufacturer if any Blu-ray players for Windows work on the virtualized products.
