    Right now, I don't think you can. I don't believe there is a blu-ray player application available.

    I believe that DVD Studio is blu-ray ready, Apple may need to send out an update to enable it.

    The question was regarding playback, not creation. Also, DVD Studio Pro does not have a Blu-Ray creation option.

    Toast is the only app I know of that supports Blu-ray.

    Adobe Encore supposedly...
    I've read (in other Forums) that Adobe Encore (CS3) Authors BluRay DVD's. I think they "reliably" create an Iso Image which you can burn to a disk using Toast. I understand that the menu's aren't slick, but you can at least author a BDR.

    You cannot watch Blu-Ray movies on Leapord, as there are no HDCP compliant video cards available for Macs at this time.

    As far as I'm aware there are also no discs with the HDCP options enabled.

    Last I heard, the word was that the powers that be wouldn't give Apple permission to use the decryption keys because of security concerns about how they where stored (being too easy for people to get hold of and use to make unauthorized copies of the discs, which they've already had bad experiences with).

    I also think Apple isn't going to bother with Blu-Ray support until it has BD drives in its machines (and possibly HDCP support); but if Apple is waiting for an ultra-thin, ultra-affordable drive, that might take awhile (I don't know, I haven't really followed the HD stuff... maybe they've already got slim slot-loading drives that don't cost too much? How big/expensive/power hungry is the PS3 drive?). On the other hand they might support external drives once the Mac Pro gets a BD drive... which should be any time last year.
