    Views : 35234 Replies : 7 #1

    I’ve seen the trailer of The Wolf OF Wall Street on Flixster yesterday, which is starred by my favorite actor Leonardo. I want to download it to my computer, but I am a newbie and I do not know how, please help.



    To download Flixster movies, first you need to sign in with your Flixster account and go to your collection page to install the Flixster Desktop player. But it has limitations on computer system. You can get the exact information from its official website.

    After installation, you can download movies directly from the application. Pressing “All” at the sidebar of the app, and hit the blue arrow icon on the poster image of the movie you want to download, then the movie will begin to download.

    Flixster provides the most comprehensive movie resources, and offers its users with movie trailers and information about the new and upcoming movies. Redeem UltraViolet, another prominent feature of the site, enables consumers to possess the digital version of the disc they bought, whether Blue-ray or DVD, by entering the redemption code. That means they could watch the purchased movies on multiple platforms and devices like smartphones, connected TV, computers, tablets.

    If you do not have the redemption code, and you want to download movie from Flixster to your local disc, the Flixster Desktop Player is an option. But as you said, it has certain restrictions towards computer system and it needs a 64-bit processor. So you may need an alternative third-party program like Video Download Capture, which is compatible with any systems, browsers, and video formats.

    Video Download Capture is an effective tool to download videos from most of online video websites in several clicks. And it is really a cinch to download movie from Flixster. Follow the steps below to get what you want from Flixster:

    Enter the Flixster online support to submit a ticket. You can get an iTunes redemption code of your movie from Flixster Support Center by filling in your email address, the movie you purchased, and the redemption code printed on your * and DVD packages and some other questions, just fill in according to your situation.
    The support center would send you an email within several minutes with an iTunes redemption code. Then things become much easier. Navigate to the iTunes Store and enter the code at the “Redeem” webpage, then the movie would show up in your Download queue.
    Hope this helps.



    Hello Alice,

    I am just doing as you instruct, exactly right, I succeed in retrieving my code and moving those movies collection to iTunes. Thanks for your guide.



    Hi Alice,

    I’ve just submitted a ticket with the support and they are now saying they can’t offer a redemption code for iTunes. Is there anyway of getting around this?


      • Olivia : Hello, I am just testing it, and I get around this successfully. Maybe you can try it again with instructions above.

    The Solution

    In Windows PC, Flixster files are located here:

    C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\MAJOR_MEDIA_folder\Local Store\

    Every movie has its proper name with other numbers in the middle and finish with .mp4 extension.

    “MAJOR_MEDIA_folder” is for example “com.wb.DC2” for Warner Bros.

      • SpongeBlake : This doesn't appear to be true for me. I see nothing resembling "MAJOR_MEDIA_folder" after downloading my movie (yes, I know that's not what it would be called), and the folder size for "roaming" isn't anywhere near large enough to contain my movie.I do however see a "file" under C:\Users\myname\AppData\Local\Flixster\Storage\ that is large enough to be my movie, but there's no .mp4 extension or filename that makes sense to anyone that isn't a computer.
