“I would like to get a light computer and one of my friends suggested me Chromebook. I know very little about this. What is Chromebook? can Chromebook play Blu-ray discs because I often play Blu-ray discs with my desktop computer?”
If you happen to have the same questions, this guide would be helpful. Here, we would like to show you what Chromebook is, what media files Chromebook accepts and how to play Blu-ray movies on Chromebook effectively.

Part 1: Can Chromebook support Blu-ray?

Running Google’s Chrome OS as its operating system instead of Windows or Apple’s OS X, Chromebook is a thin client laptop which usually costs less than £200. As an Internet-dependent laptop, Chromebook can start up in seconds with higher productivity and creativity. When you run Chromebook, you will find that the only app it has is the Google Chrome Internet browser. Other applications like videos, image files and documents are all stored on Google Virtual Server. For Chromebook, everything will be saved on the Web so that you can access to them on the computer. All the software and application on Chromebook are associated with your Google account so that your data will be secure if you can’t find them on Chromebook. Besides, all the Web apps could only be running if you connect the Chromebook to the internet.

If you want to play Blu-ray disc, maybe you will be disappointed to find that you can’t play Blu-ray movies directly on Chromebook because Chromebook doesn’t have a built-in Blu-ray drive to read the data on Blu-ray disc.
