Hi all,


Does anyone use Ultra Violet as their digital movie library?


I have some movies with Google Movies but they aren't compatible with UV, but i have soem Blurays that also come with a UV copy.


I just want one place where all my digital movies can be stored..... they definitely don't make it easy, i see why people still just torrent!


Are there any other alternative (legal) ways of storing digital videos?

i use to use this.  i would buy movies on vudu when they had a sale, and redeem bluray codes.


but in the end, its just too much hassle.  theres no real standard so it may work on one client (xbox, android tv, playstation, apple tv, fire tv etc), but not on others.


I found youtube works basically everywhere so google play movies had the most client support, but they dont say what quality the movie is...


So I'm still using Plex.


I sometimes rent a movie, and then I just rent it on whatever platform the client works with.  Sometimes this is from xbox store, sometimes google play.

Thanks, you'd think by now they'd have a better platform in place!

It uses me that all those movie companies with turn over in the ten's of billions of dollars can't sort this out vrs the streaming pirates in beds rooms solved it.

I just use my NAS.


It's completely under my control. So I know stuff should always work, streamed around the house, and something I have paid for won't disappear when a service decides to shut etc.


It depends on how absolutist you want to be about "legal". Breaking the encryption to copy the disks may be be technically illegal, but I have paid for the original discs and still possess them, so I have no moral qualms or loss of sleep over doing it.

Movies Anywhere seems to do the trick... but you can only put US-sourced movies in there because they haven't bothered to take it international yet. There's always something wrong with every service!
