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.
There are literally hundreds of movies available. It is still beta so newer movies (or older movies) don't always work. It is a bit random, but most do work.

Search here to see if your movie is available. http://www.vudu.com/in_home_disc_to_digital.html

Here is a Google Doc [google.com]a user made that lists all the movies.

Thanks and repped. Must be an issue with the program then as most of my DVDs show up on that list.

Weird, because my Scott Pilgrim BluRay worked like a charm just 3-4 days ago. If you're having repeated problems with a title that's known ot work, there might be something wrong on your end. Have you tried the standard stuff - clean the disc, uninstall / reinstall the software, verify your optical drive is working properly, yadda yadda yadda?

I have been using a cheap external USB-powered BluRay drive that I got off eBay for $20 to scan my HD2D discs and have had no issues whatsoever, apart for me trying to convert titles that aren't available yet (like Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure!).

I should probably reinstall the software. Pretty sure the movie would play fine in my BR drive (built into my laptop), but I haven't tried to play it. Disc is 100% clean. Dontknow

I would think that for the price of this service (even though it is relatively cheap) you could just build your own home server (basically have your own cloud) and rip your movies to it. There are plenty of free apps to allow you to stream from your server to a mobile device. Obviously I'm assuming you have a significant collection of movies, if you only have a handful that you want to upload it wouldn't be cheaper. This also solves the problem with Disney and other movies that won't allow conversion. The one thing that you would lack is the "upgrade" to HD from DVD.

From an economical point of view, unless you already have a server going, it's probably not worth it. You need a fair amount of storage, increased uplink throughput over what the vast majority of cable subscribers have, power to run the server constantly, and of course, the components for the server itself. And as you mentioned, the upgrade is resolution is pretty significant here, especially if you're coming from a collection that includes a lot of DVDs.

I do see where you are coming from price wise, but this is SD lol I built my server for about 160 without storage, and spent another 200 on that but have nearly 6TB's of space. I didn't factor in utilities when I thought originally about it though. I guess I just like to have the peace of mind that unless my storage fails it will always be there. I know Vudu is owned by Walmart, but nothing digital is permanent, no matter who the company is, so I'll stick to having my own content on my own server. To each their own Smilie

For instance, the cost for me to run a device that averages 200W, 24/7/365, is over $350 a year. Combine that with ~$400 upfront for the server, and that's $750 alone in the first year. This is discounting inevitable replacement parts for the server, as well as the upgrade cost for converting all of your existing DVDs to Blu-Ray or equivalents.

You can, of course, turn your server off whenever you're not using it, but that sort of defeats the purpose of a stream-box, where you are likely trying to use it when away from home.

Sure, if you have tons of movies, it may be worth it. And if you fear that Walmart will roll over of this server (a very legitimate concern), then it may be worth it too. But honestly, the price point is right for this, and it's hard to imagine that the vast majority of people will come out ahead by building and maintaining their own home media server.

There's also the issue of time and effort - a friend of mine recently ripped his collection to a server and it took him arguably weeks to do everything.

I am not very familiar with ultraviolet or vudu. If I use this service will the files all have DRM on them? If I download the files, can I play them back on any device? Thanks in advance

It is definitely a significant undertaking lol. I also allow some of my family and close friends to stream from my server as well, so I guess for me its easier/cheaper.

Like I said to each their own

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...

You can download to PC, Android tablets and virtually any iThing (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, etc). There may be other platforms - I cannot access the list at vudu.com due to work firewall issues, but you can go there yourself and look around the site.

The movies files that are resident on the Vudu servers are downloaded by the Vudu Player app, which holds them internally for playback. I have no idea where on the HD the files physically reside, nor what format they come in. All of the DRM is handled internally by the app. From within the Player app you can "see" your digital library (including any titles previously downloaded), you can "download" any title from the library to your device, and you can "play" any title (streaming for those online, or direct playback for local titles).

Ok, thanks for pointing that out. But I don't believe the other guy was referring to this.
