    WS vs. P&S

    I own several movies that say Widescreen on the DVD, however, when I attempt to checkout through the Disc to Digital feature they say P&S. I don't wish to pay for a movie in P&S. My understanding is that Pan & Scan is not as good as WS. Can someone provide sound advice. Thank you for your time.

    These movies include:
    Mystic River
    Wedding Crashers

    I have Cinderella Man in Full Frame and it comes up through checkout as (P&S).

    Lastly, Kingdom of Heaven says (UMD) at checkout. Could someone please tell me what that means.

    WS vs pan and scan doesn't matter with disc to digital. Check vudu itself to see what they have on their main site. If it's widescreen there then you'll get widescreen regardless if you use a fullscreen DVD.

      Where exactly would I look to find this information on the main page. I have looked up the individual titles but it does not exactly state. Thank you for your time.

        Watch the 2 minute previews. It's easy to spot the full screen because there will be black bars on the side whereas the widescreen will have bars on the top and bottom. For the most part movies will all be Widescreen unless they were originally full screen (like the original animated Disney Alice in Wonderland). There are some exceptions though. I've converted lots of DVDs that read as P&S but I still have the widescreen version in my account.

          I did D2D last summer with "Dragnet" (1987), and it redeemed with a P&S SD version in VUDU (at the time, the HDX option was not available--I suspect that one is anamorphic).

            Mr. Junky,

            Hello.

            I crossed a similar bridge about a year ago. What you see in your D2D list is simply a SPID description. It may or may not reflect what is on your media.

            When the title is placed into your Vudu library, it will playback in the format Vudu has available. Most often, this is OAR (original aspect ratio).

            The SPID description you see with P&S/WS/etc during the D2D process is really not of consequence.

            I agree, this is confusing. Hope this helps.

            Sincerely,

            Comment

              I think UMD might stand for "Universal Media Disc", the format for Sony's PSP games/movies. I would be fairly confident though that it is a similar issue as mentioned above, just an ID issue. Should still give you the movie in whichever format/quality is available on Vudu.
