Ratings and Reviews
It’s got some quality issues.
My two biggest complaints about Macgo Blu-ray Player Pro, given the hefty price, are: (1) the volume levels are too low. I have to have my volume at the maximum for every disc and it’s often not loud enough. The volume levels with the Leawo Player are about two or three notches more than with this software. (2) the menu options must be selected with the arrow keys and the enter key. You constantly forget to do it that way and it’s just a poor oversight. If these two things were fixed, it would definitely get an extra star.
I mainly bought this software because it does allow you to see the disc menus, which Leawo’s app does not. Leawo will let you play the extra tracks on the disc, but you have to figure out what they are and you don’t know the title, whereas this app does show you the names of the extra menu items.
Otherwise, it’s a serviceable app. But they really need to fix the volume and mouse navigation faults that I mentioned, especially for the high price they charge. They should perhaps allow over-extending the volume the way VLC player does. The volume issue will be significant for people who are watching on laptops and who live in cities, where there is a lot of noise if you have a window open, or if you live in a noisy building like a dorm.
Developer Response ,
I'm sorry that you have experienced such issues that I've also struggled with for a long time.
To add volume boost (with a risk of clipping), there is indeed a need to redesign the volume slider. But menu navigation with mouse is almost impossible because the menu is a small java app on Blu-ray disc, which accepts key events only. Sometimes I just can't resist to click the menu buttons, even I know they are un-clickable...
Thank you for your great suggestions. I'll try to make some update for these issues.
This says Its PRO....but
This is a dumbed down version of the original MACGO BLU RAY PLAYER
can't even open multiple windows of the same app, like the old one use to,...so why call it pro if you took features away....i wish apple and other companies like this one would stop dumbing down apps.
Developer Response ,
I'm sorry for the ambiguous names. Version 3 (colorful sphere icon) is new design for full menu support, so we called it Pro when it was released. And later, the legacy version 2 (tilted square icon) was discontinued due to compliant issues. Now we have two variants on App Store:
- Macgo Blu-ray Player (blue sphere icon, v3) for Blu-ray discs only.
- Macgo Blu-ray Player Pro (colorful sphere icon, v3) for discs and files.
Due to technical reasons, we are unable to merge them into a single app. However, the original intention is dedicated for Blu-ray disc playback. So it seems that the app is deviated from a general purpose media player. (Similar to macOS built-in DVD Player and Quicktime Player.) ...And unfortunately, some features from old version 2 are missing now.
Plays everything I've thrown at it so far
Not being able to play Blu-Rays on my computer has been frustrating, because I'm the type of person who loves special features that I can't get from streaming services.
But this app plus my Philips BDR-XD05S has solved that problem for me. I've tried a handful of discs and all have played well, with just some minor graphical glitches on one disc's menu.
It may seem like a steep price, but I think it's worth it to watch Blu-Rays when I'm not near my TV or it's not available. The alternative was going to be a dedicated player, and I'm glad I didn't drop hundreds on one of those when my MacBook Pro's screen is vastly superior and now I just have to pack a small addition when I travel.
