Ok, so Apple has not official supported Blu-ray playback in Mac OS X yet. Has anyone developed any Blu-ray playback software for Mac OS X? I have seen Toast and a few others that are able to write to Blu-ray discs, but no simple playback apps. Are there really no options for this right now?

Decent discussion going on in the apple forums: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2032714&tstart=0

Nothing else besides VLC? VLC has recently voiced concern over the development of the os x version. Check it out: http://www.macrumors.com/2009/12/17/videolan-considering-options-for-vlc-as-mac-developers-disappear/

VLC can play Bluray files, but not ones with copy-protection, which makes this of limited use..

The only way to play blu-ray movies in OSX is with VLC as previously mentioned. Although there is no way to play blu-ray movies with HDCP at all as of yet. If you wish to play one properly you will need to boot into Windows via boot camp.

This article suggests that you can't, though more options may have popped up since it was written (April).
