Download the VUDU To Go application.
Click the "Disc to Digital" option tab in the application.

Vudu is being backed by Walmart so I have started using it over Flixster (Which offers Disc to Digital conversion also but only for DVDs). As I figure that the purchasing power of Walmart is beneficial for their negotiations with the various movie studios, as most of the major studios are participating. I have had a great experience with the service as I can leave my BD and DVD collection at one house and not have access to them at my other locations or while on the road for work.

Most of your questions are answered here with regard to their Disc to Digital service. -

And it should be noted that you can link your VUDU account to both your Ultraviolet account and your Flixster account, granting you access to your movies from all of the companies within their individual apps on your smart tv, BD player, or other device (as long as you have internet). But you can also download a hard copy of the titles through their computer program, to have when you do not have internet access.

In addition I have been able to add my little sister to my account, under her own username so she has access to my collection in Texas as well (though you can only add one other user through VUDU and each account can only be tied to 5 devices at a time, and I do have more TVs than that.)

I guess I should state that I do not have any affiliation with any of the companies, but I have converted 240 (out of my 300 or so BDs) into their service. The reason I did not convert all of them, is that some of the titles were not eligible using the at home service. Most of the remaining were from studios without agreements with Vudu, though a few of them were eligible if I took the discs into Walmart and you can check this online at http://www.vudu.com/disc_to_digital.html
Here's a badass idea (if it works): if you want even more than 5 devices hooked to a single Ultraviolet account, how about 5 CinemaNow apps as well as 5 VUDU apps for a total of 10 connected devices? Anyone tried?

I'm having trouble understanding the purpose of this. This uploads your DVD/Blu-Ray to Vudu's cloud? What's the purpose? Why would you need to stream a movie if you own the physical disc?

You can stream to multiple devices including iPad and Android tablets. You can download to iPad and probably android tablets for playback while traveling. No need to convert the movie from the disc and upload to device yourself.
You can download to your laptop (with DRM).

You can play your movies without bothering to get out your disc, this is a big deal for some people.

Its like having your movies in a jukebox, pick one and press play.

Ultraviolet accounts can be shared with family members.

One example that applies to me... you're sitting in an airport with a 2 hour layover and want to watch a movie on your iPad or laptop.

"upgrade"
it's funny what you guys think things are doing...


it's also funny people will pay for a physical copy of a movie and later pay, again, to have a digital copy. what a racket, simply amazing...
It's funny when dbags come out of their holes to troll slickdeals forums.

DVDs are unwatchable. Yes, a 1080p stream is an "upgrade" from DVD...

I did it yesterday, I went through over 20 movies before I got to 10 that were allowed. No Disney movies (and with kids that's like 1/2 my library, think Pirates, national treasure, HSM, all the cartoons) all the LOTR are 'allowed' but it had a hard time recognizing them. But once I found 10 it was a done deal. Plus you can download the copies onto your ipad/nexus for use when not on wifi. Total no brainer for me. $1 is well worth the price.

The software appears to read the security on the disk its self. Out of curiosity I experimented using a 1:1 rip (no DRM, no go) then using the same origional retail disk with anydvd active (no go). Turned off anydvd and was able to verify.

rentals are formatted differently and would not work.

Now if my stack of HD DVD would work....

Let's say I buckle and pay for the "conversions" What happens in a few years when they abandon the concept and your library goes poof or require you to pay for another conversion to another digital format.

Remember it's only in the cloud forever if they keep the servers running

The "concept" will not be abandoned. If you think it will then don't bother.

Vudu is owned by WalMart, I don't expect them to go bankrupt soon.

Digital sales are growing and are not going away.

The movies are in Ultraviolet format, which the movie studios (except Disney) are pushing. I would guess about 50% of new releases come with an Ultraviolet copy.

Ultraviolet works across all platforms so it is not tied to one operating system or device platform.

And besides the class action lawyers would have a field day.

Vudu is owned wholly by Walmart, and so it stands to reason that they could easily decide to not continue the service. But bear in mind that any movie you add to your Vudu collection via the in-home conversion or the in-store conversion is added to your UltraViolet collection also. UV is owned by several companies (Sony and Warner Brothers I think, plus more) so there is a good chance that UV will be around for a while.

Also, there are several outlets for Vudu credit floating around that can alleviate the pain of paying for Vudu products.

EDIT: What he ^ said. Smilie

The studios can back out of the agreement once their contract expires (a year, two, five, whatever). It wont matter that Walmart owns Vudu the movies will be gone. If you are ok with paying $2-$5 bucks a pop then go for it. The value is differerent for different people.

So is the conversion only for a handful of select movies? I went through 15 of my DVDs before giving up. Got the disc error, please take it to a walmart message every time.
