Walmart’s Vudu app converts your physical movies to digital for $2 each
Walmart’ streaming movie service, Vudu, is expanding its disc-to-digital program with an update to its mobile app that will certainly allow users to scan the barcodes the movie’s barcode for converting into digital movies you can watch anywhere.
The service isn’t really totally free, certainly, but for $2 to $5 apiece you can offer new life to those DVDs and Blu-ray Discs collecting dust on your rack.
Previously, the disc-to-digital conversion service called for people to take their media to Walmart stores, or scan the disc on their PCs making use of a dedicated desktop software. Rates continues to be the very same: converting movies you already own is $2 for either a Blu-ray disc to HDX or a DVD to SD, and also $5 for DVD to HDX.
While the program isn’t cost-free, it’s significantly less costly than re-purchasing your DVD material in digital type, and also less difficult and also time consuming compared to tearing them yourself– which is technically still prohibited, unreasonable maybe. You converted movies will be uploaded to your digital locker on UltraViolet, a cloud-based movie storage service, movies can then be seen on TVs, tablet computers, smartphones, computers, video game consoles, smart TVs and set-top box devices such as Roku.
Keep in mind that Vudu is a closed platform with its own digital rights administration system, so any kind of movies you exchange digital format are locked into that ecosystem– you can’t download them or use unauthorized devices or media solutions such as Plex.
The program supports virtually 8,000 films from major workshops.
