Flixster Disc to Digital Beta - 5 free credits
Download the desktop Flixster app and try their disc to digital beta. I got 5 free credits. It appears the credits are only good for SD copies. Their movie library isn't quite as extensive as Vudu's but I had no problem converting 5 DVDs I had. Movies will be added to your Ultraviolet collection.
Any chance you might explain exactly what this is, and instead of pointing to an executable file which could be filled with god-knows-what-malware, point to a website?
-Download the desktop app (I believe only Windows so far)
- Should see "Disc to Digital (Beta) on left hand side of along with 5 free credits
- Insert DVD into computer and wait for it to read it. If it's compatible you'll see options to add the movie to your library (Standard Def or High Def). Free credits (1 credit = 1 movie) are only good for SD.
Note that not all titles are eligible. But I didn't have much trouble finding 5 DVDs that were.
This is similar to Cinemanow's beta disc to digital (although Flixster was much easier for me to use) and Vudu just released their own beta. Up until fairly recently the only way to physically add a DVD or blu-ray to your Ultraviolet library (without having a UV code) was to take it to WalMart (Vudu) and that can be a chore.

Mine aren't free. What am I doing wrong? I previously had a Flixster account, but only on my phone..
Maybe try logging out and logging back in? I have heard that it's working for some people but not others. I don't know why. Maybe random.
Ditto. Do you need to receive an email in order to be eligible for five free transfers?
I did not get an email. I happened upon it by a google search (I heard they were coming out with a disc to digital) and figured I'd check. I downloaded the desktop app in my original post and next to disc to digital beta it says something like "Try disc to digital beta. You have 5 free credits remaining." That's all I did. When I convert the movie the regular price ($2.50 I think for SD) is crossed off and replaced to $0 until the credits are used.
Did Vudu or CinemaNow have similar promotion to for trying out?
OP, did you open new flixster account to get 5 free transfer offer?
Thanks for the heads up, but we need more info...
To my knowledge neither Vudu nor CinemaNow have had a recent free disc to digital promotion for their beta in-home conversion. I have used Vudu's without any problem but CinemaNow freezes up on me.
I already had a flixster account but I had only installed the android and iOS apps (you get free movies for downloading the apps). This was the first time I had downloaded their Windows desktop app.
