Default Vudu To Go/In-Home Disc To Digital to end December 31, 2019

Sad day. RIP.

From an email just sent out:

End of Support for Vudu To Go/In-Home Disc to Digital

Vudu To Go, the in-home service of Disc to Digital will no longer be supported after December 31, 2019.

You can continue to convert your Blu-ray and DVDs by using Disc to Digital on your mobile device. Simply scan the UPC barcode of eligible movies using Disc to Digital through the Vudu app on your Android device, or through your iPhone browser at vudu.com/disc.

We look forward to continuing to refine and improve the Disc to Digital experience for our users. Learn more about using Disc to Digital on your mobile device here.

Sincerely,

Vudu

Yeah, pretty sad considering it's a far more difficult method to spoof and requires one actually have unsealed the packaging somewhere they have a PC with a Blu-ray drive. But not unsurprising at all considering how long it's been since they added non-MD2D titles. Vudu To Go is also like... a trashy Adobe AIR app or something that I imagine they don't want to support anymore.

I hate Adobe AIR too, but there were certain cases where it came in handy.

In a way it's sad but my cart has been messed up for almost a year and I haven't been able to use it so I'm already used to being without it.

I found it useful though, seeing as how I always managed to have the version of the disc they magically don't have or recognize the UPC for.

Has anyone ever bought discs that were former rentals, and then weren't able to in-home D2D? (along with the usual rental case with weird barcodes which exclude mobile D2D)

I bought Prisoners and Mad Max: Fury Road from Family Video and couldn't convert (I'd try every couple years just to see).

That really grinds my gears.

Also, steelbook blu-rays from Big Lots often don't have barcodes because its just the steelbook in cellophane. Oh, and steelbooks where I stupidly discarded the outside packaging because I didn't know about Vudu in-home D2D too.

And those blu-ray collections (Matrix, Alien, other ones where you get a retail copy).

Also, I highly suggest uninstalling (or at least uninstalling what you can) Adobe Air after Vudu To Go/In-Home gets cancelled. You might run into problems installing any program that requires Adobe Air after uninstalling though.

You can see how often Adobe needs to patch this thing, krebsonsecurity usually says patch it or pitch it with this one (much like Adobe Flash, which is definitely patch it or pitch it):

Chedwiggen, have you considered reinstalling/refreshing your operating system? It's a drastic measure to get one program to run, but if you're not converting any Fox titles, might be worth giving it one last shot...

I had an issue after I turned on Microsoft Security's built-in ransomware protection, called Controlled Folder Access. I was able to convert problematic discs after allowing stuff I disallowed but forgot about. That might be worth looking into too, if your cart stopped working around a year ago.

barcodes are easily searchable for what you can convert online.

Prolly frowned upon, but in cases like that, if I owned the disc, I'd just go to the BD-disc page, call up the image thumbnail and scan the code off the PC monitor. TBC I ONLY do this if a actually possess the disc, and reading off the PC gave me either a "cannot read" or read the BD as a "DVD" (this happens often?) error.

Actually scanned and converted all my "eligible" titles earlier in the year, so the remaining 400 or so discs I have are either "ineligible to be converted" or some have no existing "digital file" to even buy?

For example, well everyone in the USA should know the significance yesterday had, almost like a boomers 9/11. So of course I decided to watch "Parkland" and found NOBODY in the US has this film available via digital? Vudu DOES have a "movie page" on it but doesn't offer the film for purchase or rent digitally.

About a year ago the tab for in-home D2D literally disappeared from my V2G and I could not figure out how to restore it, no matter how thoroughly I clear the program from my computer. I submitted a ticket but they never responded to it. As long as mobile D2D continues on, it could be worse.

Prisoners never worked even though it was eligible and Fury Road may have been to new to work. They kept adding eligible movies but never actually added them to the database so they would work.

Try this spreadsheet and choose the filter In-Home only. Only titles from 2012 or earlier have a chance of working. There are close to 340 of those.

It used to be a total chore to lug the desktop pc out of the closet just to scan movies every now and then, but in retrospect it was worth the time to get the 50% bulk discount. They got rid of the promotion right around the time I was beginning to use it and once md2d rolled out it wasn't nearly as good of a deal to pay $5.50 per dvd scan.
