I downloaded it. It's a .pkg file that requires using the installer. Those installs usually dig their claws into the system a little deeper than just dragging an App into the Applications folder. Might still check it out though.
I've got that Macgo Blu-ray player software. Works pretty well, but the audio isn't so great. When you play a disc with DTS-HD audio it outputs the core DTS through my optical out on my Mini. Perfect. When you play a disc with Dolby HD audio it only outputs stereo. I've emailed them several times asking when they'd fix it. Got one reply that didn't make much sense. They don't reply anymore. Language barrier? Maybe I'm just being a pest or expecting too much.

Can't speak to other's experience, but I downloaded the free trail a while ago (Dec 2011 - see the thread, "Rip/Convert Software question") to try it's video file conversion function. It worked fine, but I was never able to get it to read a BD on either BD drive (a GGW-H20L and a WH12LS39) in my Mac Pro Early 2009, 2.66GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon, 8GB RAM, OSX 10.7.4. I just attempted again with a couple BDs. It is currently spinning its wheels and has been for >30-min, as previously. Not sure what I'm doing wrong... also, it doesn't seem to recognize the BD is in a drive. I have to navigate to the BD to get DVDFab to try to open it.

Downloaded the DVDfab Mac Blu-ray player and it works pretty good. No problem playing DVD (Video_TS) or Blu-ray (.mkv) files. Had a little trouble at first figuring out how to turn off sub-titles but once I found out you can right click a settings menu all is good now.
I cannot however play a Blu-ray disk from my external drive as the software says it can do. Mostly the software just crashes.
At least I now have another good .mkv player besides Plex.
