Yes! You can now watch many movies and TV shows in HD and HDX on www.vudu.com. To see if a movie is available to stream in HD or HDX on your computer, click on your movie of choice and you will see a purple banner at the top that says "HDX and HD Now available on PC/MAC computers!" If you do not see this banner, then you can still stream the movie, but only in SD.
What are my bandwidth requirements?
Bandwidth requirements are as follows:
HD - 2.25mbps or higher
HDX - 4.5mbps or higher
You can test your speed at http://speedtest.vudu.com. If you do not meet the bandwidth requirements to stream in HDX, you can also download in HDX using VUDU To Go.
What are my system requirements?
System requirements are as follows:
A PC or Mac with Intel Core i5 (or AMD equivalent) processor
2gb of RAM
A graphics card and display that are HDCP compliant (if you do not know if your graphics card or display are HDCP compliant, please check with the manufacturer for details).
You may see high CPU consumption while watching HD or HDX on your computer. This is expected. If you see stuttering, please try again after killing other programs that may be running in the background.
What browser should I use to watch movies in HD/HDX?
We support the following browsers - Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. However, we've seen the best results with using the Google Chrome browser.
Can I watch HD/HDX on Apple laptops and desktops?
Yes, we support most Apple laptops and desktops to watch HD/HDX via a browser. However, most Apple laptops and desktops (Mac Mini and Mac Pro) do not support HDCP outputs to external monitors. If you're using a Macbook Pro or Macbook Air, you can watch HD and HDX using the laptop display. Otherwise, you will be limited to SD playback. If you feel that you are seeing an HDCP message in error, please contact Apple support. http://www.apple.com/support/mac/. If you are using a Retina display Macbook Pro, please use Google Chrome as we have seen issues with Safari.
Why am I getting a black image/screen when I try to play the movie?
If the movie window only displays a black image, then that typically means that the Flash player has crashed or stopped responding. To fix this, restart your browser and that will start a new Flash session.
