Blu-Ray discs are not the same as DVDs, and the standard DVD players cannot read them.
You can buy a third-party Blu-Ray player with software if you like.Beige G3, G4/867, G4/dual 1.25 MDD, MacPro'09 w cheap SSD, Mac OS 8.6 or Earlier, and 9.2, 10.5 and Server - LW IIg, LW 4/600, ATalk ImageWriter L

The copy protection on BD's won't allow them to be played at full resolution on an external display without end-to-end hardware copy protection (HDCP) in the graphics subsystem.

Just an FYI, MCE now provides software for playing commercial Blu-ray discs on OS X with their Blu-ray drives as of about a week ago.

VLC Player tends to play virtually everything. I am curious if it also plays blue ray movie media.

DVD and Blu-ray are two completely different technologies. Your DVD cannot physically read blu-ray discs. The only option is to buy a new drive.
