Blu-ray disc is becoming more and more popular for its large storage capacity and HD video effect. But you may get frustrated that your Blu-ray can't play on laptop. There are several reasons for Bluray can't play on laptop directly:

2.Native Blu-ray support issues. Because of Sony's licensing on Blu-ray, it is pretty difficult to Blu-rays on your laptop, especially on iMac. Windows is the only operating system that can play them back natively. However, there are a few workarounds. So you need a third party application to help you.
