Community Update: Enhancing Our Discussions

I'm transitioning our community discussions to a new Discord server to create a more engaging and dynamic platform. The current "discuss" section will eventually be phased out (it's pretty jank) to focus on this new direction. Discord offers real-time chat, leading to faster responses, support, and a more vibrant community atmosphere. Join me (and hopefully others) on the official DVDUPC Discord server to continue our discussions.

Click here to join the Discord server

Additionally, I'm on the lookout for moderators to help manage our new Discord community. If you’re interested in contributing and keeping our discussions healthy and productive, please let me know on Discord. Your support would be greatly appreciated as we grow and enhance our platform together.

General Discussion

This forum is for discussing anything related to DVDUPC. While we transition, your feedback remains invaluable. Please post any questions, comments, or concerns here until we fully move to Discord.

Pushed a new update to the site! Hopefully this version is less annoying, (less ads) and easier to use than the last version.

The dataset used in this update should be virtually 100% accurate to what is actually available/redeemable, whereas the last dataset was pretty bad (sorry for that), so that's a big plus...

I'm still working on bringing around some of the old features like the leaderboard (don't worry, everything is still saved), etc...

I'd love to get some feedback, or suggestions on making the site even better!


Site Updates

Sept 7th, 2022

  1. Updated the search functionality. You can now search by "anything" which basically searches of the title, description as well as actors. Searching is also typo tolerant as well as "fuzzy", so searches like "ring king" should return "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King"

Sept 8th, 2022

  1. Seach is functioning again... oops

Sept 10th, 2022

  1. Added the Library

    • You can now add titles to your Library - previous users that had a library should see the stuff they added on the old site
  2. Added a Wishlist

    • You can now also add titles to your Wishlist, handy for those titles you haven't redeemed yet, but want to in the future.

You can find these under the new "My DVDUPC" link in the site navbar.

  1. General impovements were made to help speed things up (with more to come)

As always, looking for feedback, especially on the new Library / Wishlist

Jul 30th, 2023

Two changes have been implemented to help clarify what is and what is not available for redemption through Vudu. Updates haven't been happening as frequently as they should have been (although it seems that Vudu isn't making many changes, presumably because most movie studios now have their own streaming services), but from now on, they will occur daily at midnight. I apologize for any inconvenience caused by this, which was due to a very busy year on my part.

  1. Added a history page, where you can see the actual changes that occur on the site and when they happen.
  2. Changes have been implemented to ensure the site stays in sync with Vudu on a daily basis.
Missing titles

If anyone is aware of specific titles that are clearly missing from the site, I would appreciate it if you could share what you have (along with their working UPC). I've noticed a few people claiming that the site's list is not as accurate as other lists on the internet. I would like to investigate this matter if it's true.

Nice redesign!

A bug: It looks like the Fox movies are back, but they are not compatible with Disc to Digital.

A request: It would be great to have filter for Movies Anywhere compatibility.

Thank you for this! The non-redeemables should be filtered out now, i didn't even catch that...

I'll see what I can do to filter on MA!

Great design. I am looking forward in review the infomration. Thanks.

So is the library function coming back?

I love the new look and enhanced functionality, excellent job! I noticed some new titles showing up as well, thank you so much! One thing I noticed is when I go to search and begin typing, my cursor is removed from the typing field once the search results beging populating. If it helps, I'm using the latest version of Firefox on Windows 11. I wouldn't mind also being able to press enter after typing a search query and having a page of the search results, but I don't want to seem nitpicky because I'm super grateful for this site.

avatar

Thank's for the feedback! I think this should be fixed! If not, lemme know (also try a hard reload on the browser).

I do have a goal of creating a settings page where users can enable/disable/configure different settings. Using your example, you'd be able to switch the way search works from it's current form of "search on typing" to "search on enter", so keep an eye out for that eventually.

Thanks again for the feedback!

That was super fast! It's fixed, thank you so much!

The codes are not working on vudu, I put the camera on the bar code and ut does nothing

avatar

did you click on the code you wanted first to open up the useable code

avatar

Is there any way to add a filter for whether the movie has a Blu Ray UPC added? I am not big paying $5 for old movie but 2$ is.
But i can never know which ones have a blu ray upc added. This feature would be awesome.

avatar

Why is the site so scewed up lately? My wishlist is gone. My library has huge photos and hard to scroll through. And the Grey bar at the bottom of the page is annoying as well.

avatar

Unfortunately, I have noticed the same problem. "My Library" and "Wishlist" used to have their own tab and separate. I can still categorize a movie in the wishlist, but I can no longer find them as a group. Anyway this could be corrected. Despite my gripe, I greatly appreciate all the work and effort to maintain DVDUPC. Thanks.

avatar

Please let me know if it looks normal again and sorry that hapepned.

I realize that advertising helps offset the price of operating the site. However, when the add takes up nearly 3/4 of the page it makes it very aggravating. Is it possible to fix this?

avatar

I posted similar a while back. Unusable with a cell phone. Best if using a laptop with popup blockers.

avatar

Thanks for the suggestion.

avatar

How do you add a barcode? The three listed for Boat Trip don't work but I found a working code I wanted to add.

avatar

Will you be bringing back the library? Might I suggest making turning that into a wishlist. That way people can make a wishlist of titles they want to covert instead of what they have converted.

avatar

The library will totally be back and the wishlist is a great idea! Keep an eye out for it and thanks for the suggestion!

avatar

How do you view your "Wishlist"? I started flagging a bunch into my "Wishlist" but don't know how to display just those items. Only thing I can view is what is in "My Library".

avatar

Didn't there used to be tools to add titles or UPC's? Hopefully that comes in an update. More than once have I converted a title that does not appear here.

avatar

Absolutely love the redesign!

Not sure how it is now because the wishlist isn't currently there...but previously I couldn't click on a movie in the wishlist to find the code to convert. I always had to have two windows side by side.

I've used this site to convert over 300+ movies the last few years. My library is now 650+! Thank you for your hard work and dedication!!

avatar

I love the new design on the site! I wish we could tether it to MA or Vudu to pull the info directly from our other accounts. Thanks for the awesome work!

avatar

Or possibly a way to import a list of titles to fill out My Library.

avatar

What happened to the my list? i hope its not gone forever, that took me a long time to make

avatar

Don't worry, it's not gone! I'm working on bringing it back as we speak... When finished, there will basically be "my list" as well as a "wish list"

avatar

oh thank goodness i thought mine was gone also.

avatar

Hi, where are the blu ray codes?

avatar

Hello Serpico007, I find that not all are available in Blu-ray. If they are SirDVD would have them listed. Sometimes there is a 'Show More' below the DVD UPCs as he lists as many as possible.

πŸ‘ 1
avatar

@BlueRayMovies2 is correct, if there isn't a BluRay option, the title is most likely not available in that format (not everything is).

That said, if you see something that you know scans, but isn't on the site, let me know!

Thanks!

I appreciate the hard work you put into this website, its well done! My question is I have'nt been seeing any new movies being listed much anymore? I'm not sure if i'm just not navigating through the site correctly. Thank you Scott

I haven't seen anything new in a long time

avatar

Is there any chance of getting the trailers link back?

avatar

Give me a bit and I'll bring them back

avatar

How do I go about contributing a barcode?

avatar

Currently the list (i believe) should be 1:1 with vudu, but something could be gonig wrong somewhere. Is there a missing UPC or movie that you can share here with me so I can look into it?

avatar

have you stopped updating the latest movies that are available for the D2D?

avatar

I haven't stopped, I just don't know if vudu is adding new titles...

It seems like lately they have been removing more titles than adding, I'm guessing due to licensing with studios or something similar.

Is there anything that you notice that should be in the list that isn't? I can look into it if you notice something missing.

I like your site but almost unusable from an ipad. Heaven forbid from a phone.

Hello, I am a recent user here and I am curious as to how often or when does this site gets updated? I have been checking in but there seems to have been no updates since I joined. Is there a when I can find out when it is update? Thank You.

Hey BRM. I have a link from one of the Reddit forums I belong, and even the newest one on the list is here at DVDUPC. Reddit group: https://www.reddit.com/r/vudu/ D2D list: https://lookerstudio.google.com/reporting/d4bd9305-6ffb-4bd3-bdaf-ee798a457e6a/page/0ngiC

Many Thank jb99. The first like come up 'something went wrong' the second one worked. I will check on both this and your reddit site. :]

I used to check Michael's UPC MASTER LIST before he passed (RIP) I remember he posted movies/TV/Bundles almost weekly and let us know which were removed. I asked how to do so and continue his list, but no one replyed on how he got the information. The last time list was updated was February 2022. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1IgK7tIEKngP59PUOs_lsF4P1hbSRIG71tgxncpu1Mws/edit#gid=402351217 I had hoped someone would take over it and help us out.

avatar

The site should be to the tee 1:1 what is available. Let me know if you see something that might be out of sync so I can look into what might be wrong.

Thanks!

avatar

The Blob (1958) Bluray is not the 1958 version it is a 1988 remake version. Totally sucks. LOL I see you updated this list in September 2022. How often does Vudu update their Disc to Digital Movies? How can I access them from Vudu? Thanks.

The site is currently completely unusable on iPhone. I can send a video demonstrating the issue if you tell me where to send it.

Yep, I sent a note a few months ago but no reply. Figure webmaster is doing as a public service so we will just have to put up with.

I haven't read any recent replies from him. Hope you are alright SirDVD!!!

avatar

How do we upload?

avatar

The old site allowed uploading because it was manually curated, but the current site should be an exact match of what is available for redemption. Let me know if you see something that is missing from the site so I can check into it.

Thank you!

avatar

In the comment section of the title The Garden I added a link to the barcode. I've tested the barcode myself and it does work. Can you see about adding it?

avatar

As of 3/4/23, the site is almost unusable on mobile devices - ads cover over 2/3 of my screen (iPhone/Safari)

avatar

Give it a shot again and let me know how the experience on mobile is now. I've disabled all of the annoying trash ads that covers the screen, they weren't suppose to be there. If they are still there, give it a minute they should be gone very soon.

avatar

I contacted VUDU on movie 'The Blob' and they changed it to the 1958 version. This was the only monster movie that scared me when I was a kid because I could not hear it coming and it could sneak up on me. I was on the sofa watching with my legs on sofa so it wouldn't get me!!!! Steve McQueen did a good job. I can't help but wonder if he realized he was the only person that actually 'acted' in the movie. The other performers were just awful!!! LOL

I'm curious, do you have any sort of an API to lookup a movie by it's UPC code?

With such a lovely dataset of movie's, that'd be an amazing feature. I'm pretty sure you're using Laravel Jetstream, and API authentication is baked in out of the box, so that'd be super easy to build.

I'd love to help out if that's something you're interested in building!

avatar

Not sure this is what you mean? https://www.upcitemdb.com/

avatar

I've used UPC Item DB, but their API doesn't have nearly as much detailed information as DVD UPC. I was suggesting that DVD UPC add an API that allows querying the info already in DVD UPC.

For example, hitting something like: https://dvdupc.com/api/lookup/883929240739

Could return a JSON response such as this: https://gist.github.com/lbattaglioli2000/f4676a19010bb5f121edddcc55a2971c

avatar

A search API endpoint could be cool too! Something like this:

https://dvdupc.com/api/search/?query=The%20Campaign

avatar

I'm game for imlpementing an api if you have use for it.

People/bots already scrape the site for the data so I'd much rather just have an official api that doesn't take all the unneccesarry bandwidth.

Actually I might just make it open source soon so others (such as yourself) can help make the site even better. My day job is killing me and dvdupc deserves more love.

avatar

Yeah definitely, I'd love to help out and add this functionality in. I can even make an API endpoint to make submitting new movies and UPCs easier!

Let me know if you have a public repo setup, or when you create one, and I can fork it and make a PR with some of this new functionality!

If you want to take this convo to Discord or something similar, so we can talk about more of the technical aspects, let me know too!!

avatar

Feel free to send me an email too!

avatar

I haven't seen any updates here in months. Any chance you'll be updating soon? Vudu updates their list often, but I don't see them here. How about giving us the information of pulling the newly added Disc to Digital movies on our own?

avatar

It seems someone has taken over Michael's google spreadsheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/0/d/1RSjytgDMHy3ZvOBotkKFY8g-WBYwRQ9jGI9uM-xY1Go/pub?single=true&gid=9&output=html) Unfortunatelly, it does not include bundles, removed movies nor the updated dates. But it is worth a look at. Just an FYI

avatar

It is also not as nice or detailed as seen on this site.

avatar

AND . . . it is a direct to digital???? I clicked on Fantastic Voyage, I've been hoping it came to D2D but what it did was take me to Vudu to puchase it at regular price. Bummer. You can't even communicate with the editor as before. I will stick to this site. :]

avatar

imo the search sucks now. If you're looking up a franchise like for example anything fast and the furious you can't see the whole title in the drop down so it's a gamble when you click one and if it's the wrong one you have to start the search over instead of a prior list.

avatar

if you type fast and furious you still see what's what and the title and image

there's 4,6,1,3, then fast shows 2 and 6

avatar

It would be really useful if after applying a filter (ex: genre) that the search results would come back alphabetized, if it's not too hard to add that to how you're querying your data. Thanks - the site is great!

avatar

Try this Google Spreadsheet. It is 'view only' but it is just another venue. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1cF4G2qh_2b_UZF9-5F6xyGytJwzw3z7KJUTQWuAAHyc/edit#gid=2027618989

Is Fandango no longer adding Disc to Digital movies/TV seasons-bundles to Vudu? There hasn't been an update since last year. I regularly pull out my blu-rays and try them as I used to for years and every now and then one of them would have been added. But that has not happened since Fandango took over Vudu from Walmart. Are there other outlets I can look into that are more current? Please let me know. Thanks.

avatar

Thanks, I have that site as well, but I like this site much much better. SirDVD makes it so easy. This google doc does not offer upc or information. My questions is still, if Fandango just stopped offering new disc to digital all together?

I noticed your new 'History' link and I really like it with dates of entry. Keeps me from having to go through your entire library when I can't remember a movie. As far as the other comments, I had not noticed any issues and everything looks the same to me. Thank you SirDVD for your service!

avatar

How do I add DVD UPCs. There's a bunch of movies I own that is not in this site. I would like to contribute.

avatar

Hi, until they are put up here, would you email me your list to craiglin865@aol.com? Thanks!

avatar

Do you want the UPC as well? How often do you add movies?

avatar

Yes, if you would. I add them whenever I see something I want to watch. Right now I have 411 movies and documentaries and 36 TV.

avatar

I've been on Vudu for quite some time . . .

avatar

Hey richthescumbag, if the new entries are from your list, THANKS! That was quite a list!

avatar

I had trouble with the codes for Narrow Margin (1990), but this code worked: https://www.upcitemdb.com/upc/12236100546

avatar

That is the site I use to get UPC's when they are not on the list. . . Narrow Margin is not a movie I own, not intersted in mafia movies.

avatar

Paranormal Activity Chronology is missing a UPC; I don't know if it even has one because I don't think it was ever given a physical release. I'd love to be proven wrong though.

avatar

Does anyone know how to find your wishlist? You can add but I can't see how one actually finds the list

avatar

Click "My DVDUPC" in the navigation and it will show both your library (titles you own) and your wishlist (titles you want).

Also, you have to be logged in to see it in the nav.

avatar

Quite a few movies on here are no longer able to be D2D is there a way to report those to you so they can be removed? for example How the Grinch stole Christmas (Deluxe Edition) is no longer working, some of the saw movies. noticing WB movies arent working now as well. would love to be able to help sort those out since im just using my d2d also a lot of the bundles are now dead.

Love the website thanks for all the hard work you put in.

avatar

Has anyone had problems with Disc to Digital on your Android phone? Today I tried to and Fandango has changed everything around and I cannot find the Disc to Digital drop down menu. After a few 'chats' I gave up because they kept sending me links that resolved nothing. Finally, I logged out of Vudu on my phone. I then went through Chrome on my phone and typed HTTP://VUDU.COM/DISC and was able to access it after logging in. Please let me know if you had the same issue on your phonew and how you resolved it. Thanks.

avatar

It's been over a month since any movies have been added. richthescumbag sent a truck load of movies to be entered. Now nothing . . . :[

avatar

The process is automated daily. Any change is marked in the history page of the site under the category related to the change. If there hasn't been a change for a month, which there hasn't been for the "added" section, then it's because nothing new has been added at the source.

That said, things can and do go wrong... Do you hava a link to the list you've mentioned or a few titles along with the UPC so I can cross check what's incorrect here?

Thank you!

avatar

Thank you for the reply. The site I used to get them from was https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1IgK7tIEKngP59PUOs_lsF4P1hbSRIG71tgxncpu1Mws/edit#gid=1306230493 But Michael pass away. His last entry was February 2022. He used to update almost daily. Just as you he had movies, TV, Bundles and Removal tabs at the bottom. Someone posted that he would take over and look for updates, but updates never came. At least I found your site which is much more information, images and tons of DVD and Blurays. I appreciate this site enormously! And I thank you for having it up. BlueRayMovies2

I've dedicated seven years to this site. SEVEN YEARS.

You're here at no cost.

You take whatever you want. Whever you want. I've never stopped you.

You pay nothing.

You know who pays?

Me.

I pay.

I pay with something I will never be able to get back.

My time.

Not yours, but mine.

Time I could have spent with my family, or doing literally anything else. Instead, I chose to invest that time helping others. And this is the thanks I get?

Let me make this clear: the site has always been, and will always be, completely free. Yes, there are ads – too many, I admit – but they're necessary to cover operating expenses. I've never forced anyone to disable ad blockers, because I respect your choice.

I updated the site with "The Passion of the Christ" just four days ago, immediately after you mentioned it. Considering everything I'm balancing – a full-time job, a family with young kids – is this not fast enough? Did I really fail you?

Don't be that person, man. I'm doing my best here.

And remember, because why not mention it again: the site is free. If it doesn't meet your standards, you're welcome to find something else. No one is keeping you here against your will.

This is the only site left to even list D2D movies/TV/Bundles. JB99 entered a site mentioning Passion of the Christ, which I went to the sight and have no idea how he figured out it was released to D2D. So the site, to me, is worthless. Thank you SirDVD, for your reply to unneccesary attack of this site. Yes, at time I get frustrated because no movies have been entered. If there were another way for me to find them as SirDVD does, I would try locating that way as well. Buy here you get to go to Amazon and watch Trailers to see if it is the movie you want and if you like it when purchased, rather than enter your movies over and over individually until you find one that has actually been added. Try that Chivasusmc81 and you'll realize it would take you hours/days to check your movies for D2D. Be grateful for the site. If you are going to look for faults, your are going find them. If you are looking for perfection, you are living in a dreamed up world.

SirDVD, thank you, this site has been a great resource and I appreciate all of your hours. I know what's itt'e like to do something for joy only to have some lift their leg on you.

Is anyone having problems with Vudu D2D now that it is called Fandango at Home? I take photo of upc and then it just hangs there. I keep trying and nothing. I log out and log in and it still won't read the upc or let me know if it is valid or not. Sometimes if I wait long time, it will tell me it is not longer vailable I've even tried movies that are already in my vudu library and it still hangs. I have tried logging in on Chrome and approach it that way, still the same error. Some that I have gotten through of the recent ones, they are saying not avaiable for d2d....?

avatar

Vudu, became Dudu when Fandango bought them. Nothing happens over night and actions that should be smooth aren't. Be patience, I've had the same issues you have. Fandango didn't buy Vudu to improve the system or service, they bought it to kill the competition.

I had to use Firefox to get mine to work

avatar

Thanks, Bildo111. I will see about installing Firefox on phone. Also, I have a crappy Consumer Cellular phone (max10) or something like that. So, I am never sure if it is the phone or the site, but as you said, most likely, the site. :]

avatar

If you have IOS I think you have to use Firefox, I think the android process is different. Even with a generic or consumer cell, you should be able to download firefox, that browser is made to the lowest common denominator.

I've also found if you tweak the angle of the barcode you get better reults. Some angles capture more flicker than others. I've also printed out the barcode and scanned that when I can't get a clean angle from the screen.

avatar

IOS users can use VUDU on Safari - all other browsers are whatever... I've been doing 100 movies a year every January for the last 7 years, I'm up to 866 movies in my VUDU library so far!

The trick is to make sure your bank app and your VUDU have your address/location updated to what THEY auto generate: meaning, my address is a condo but one app thinks I'm in an apartment so whatever, I let it auto populate. On the other app my address auto populates backwards and lists the unit number on the top line and my physical address on the bottom line, whatever! I let it auto populate and BOOM, I can D2D all day! I have an iMac that I use to pull up the UPC codes since the ads on mobile are whatever, and I use VUDU through Safari on my 2022 iPhone SE (a rinky dink phone) to take the pictures of the UPC codes.

avatar

Not to sound rude, but that should be a no brainer. I believe if your physical addredd and billing address are not aligned, the app tells you. I know it used to because a friend of mine moved and called me for help because he didn't know where to update his profile on the VUDU website.

All of this was easier and smoother before NBC Universal Comcast took over.

At least 15-20 movies were added monthly and always posted in the VUDU blog. You didn't need a web browser, you scanned the barcode frm the Vudu App, which is how I believe Android still does it and I never had a problem reading barcodes unless the printing was bad and didn't reflect back enough light.

Printing? LOL The new UPCs work fine. I just tried some of the new cartoons and they scan fine, from DVDUPC on my iMac screen to VUDU (on the internet/Safari) on my Iphone SE.

VUDU D2D works fine. The company changing from Walmart to Fandango never made a difference. The recent logo change didn't make a difference. Not to sound rude, but I wrote that my addresses were NOT aligned but that's how they autopopulated, so I left it and everything works fine.

dlucks: What Vudu Blog are you talking about? How can I access it?

BlueRayMovies2. The blog was taken offline when Fandango bought Vudu from Walmart. It was a newsletter that updated at least twice a month. It promoted new releases, had any promotional codes that were active and listed every titled added to D2D every month. I knew that Vudu was on the block when updates started to be less frequent and after about 3-4 month, Vudu announced that they had agreed to a deal with NBC Universal, the blog stopped updating and 3 months later was taken offline and prices increased about 30% accross the board. Older titles for the most part used to be $4.99, they imediately jumped to $7.99, now $9.99. New Releases were generally $14.99, now they are $24.99. Customer service used to also respond in 24 hours, my average response time since Fandango took over is 3 days, and even then, it's an automated respons that generally doesn't recolve my issue.

Like I said, NBC bought Vudu, because people were startng to realize it was cheaper to buy a movies from Vudu than it was to rent from Fandango or Comcast. The purchase killed the competition. I have no idea why Fandango is so gready. As much as I hate iTunes, many titles are less there, so if they are MA titles, I buy them from Apple, just to make sure Fandanago doesn't get my money.

MGM and Amazon titles are generally half as much from Apple, only issue is those titles are not MA, so you can't watch them on Vudu's player, only Apple TV. Apple is also starting to do TV shows for less!

I just typed in the old url, try it for yourself! blog.vudu.com

I am still having problems with D2D. I capture photo and accept it but it does not show up when it is supposed to scan it for approval. I am still using Vudu dot com. Should I use the Fandango site instead? Thanks for the new movies, but I can't get my d2d to work. :[

I haven't been able to get any of the recently added titles to port either, it's not you. Many of them give me the warning that the UPC is not eligable at this time.

FYI/Update: To those of us having issues with Fandango D2D. On March 17th, I sent an email to Fandango support and I only just got a reply today. Here is a copy/paste of their reply: From: support@vudu.com

Thank you for contacting Fandango at Home customer service and bringing this issue to our attention.

Sorry to hear you're having issues with our disc-to-digital feature. We are working on improvements that will hopefully resolve this issue sometime in the future. We do not have an estimated time when this will come to fruition. If you haven't done so already, you can try scanning and converting with a different device to see if that works for you. Once again, we are sorry we were unable to provide a resolution to your issue at this time.

Vudu doesn't have an ETA, because they don't give AF! If you want to fix something, you fix it. They leave things broken and make zero concessions for the inconvience or wait. I have yet to have asolid resolution with them since Fandango took over. At one point, I was charged for a rental of a movie I would never watch and I've also never rented a movie from Vudu. It took 6 weeks and a letter from my Atorney Generals office to get my refund. Vudu appologized, but I reminded them, they claimed 48 hour resolution and it was nearly two months before I got a reply and it took legal intervention.
