Vudu Converts Discs Via Phone

Walmart-owned Vudu will convert your Blu-ray or DVD titles via smartphone. Using the Mobile Disc-to-Digital feature on the Vudu mobile app, scan the barcode on the packaging. It’s not free—you’ll pay $2 per title for standard-def or $5 for high-def.

You can scan more than one title at once, but there is a 100-disc limit per account and per year. You can perform the scan only at home or at your Vudu billing address, with GPS monitoring your location. Conversion is available for 8,000 titles from major studios
