So it looks like you have to go to Walmart and the digital file will live in the cloud that you access only through Walmart's Vudu service... Yikes! I'll stick to my homebrew movie jukebox.

Edit: According to the article Vudu is compatible with the UltraViolet scheme.

When companies are coming up with these systems, does anyone ever stop and ask "Is this something I would pay for?" I'm guessing the answer to that question is "no".

Well if you're tech savvy enough to have a Vudu setup at your house but not savvy enough to know how to rip movies, getting into your car to drive to Walmart instead of having to walk your disk over to your player... um... yeah, I'll have to get back to you on that.

Apologies if this link has already being posted, although I've read the posts I don't remember them all now

I agree with a lot that is said in that rant and I'll feel sorry for anyone who pays $$ to convert their DVDs only to lose access to the paid for streaming when the service isn't generating the revenue they expected in a few years time and is shut down (like so many music and similar services have in the past, walmart iirc had such a service too)
