Default Unable to play movies using Flixster app

As I have some movies that have a digital download code I have opened a Flixster account to access them on various gadgets. With all the hassle I've had so far (including the Flixster app not being available on Windows 8 in the UK) I'm not sure it's worth it.
I have downloaded the Flixster app and used it to download The Bourne Legacy. I can see this in Root/Android/Data/net.Flixster.android/files/wv. I thought that I could then copy it to the SD card and play it from there but have found out that this is a problem due to DRM protection.
I have found a workaround of copying the movie to the SD card and delete from the Flixster folder and copy back when I wanted to watch. Irritatingly, Flixster names the film with a string of numbers rather than a sensible name so it's not easy to identify each film.
Does anyone know if there is a way to keep the film on an SD card as this would be much easier?

If you know what the movie is when you copy it, rename it to something meaningful yourself? I suspect the obfuscated file-names are part of the DRM copy protection. Other than that can't really help, as it's against forum rules to discuss bypassing DRM schemes on Phandroid, because of the DMCA.
