Where do you download your movies?

I want to put a movie on my View but I'm confused about how to download movies.  I download my music with Limewire BTW.  But my friend says he uses "torrents" or something like that.

Limewire... especially since you are using it for songs already.  Just enter something like :Full Length Movies" or "The Simpsons" or "MP4 Movies" or even "IPOD Movies"  once all is said and done (downloaded) you can use Any Video Converter (www.any-video-converter.com = scrolldown and choose the free version.) and convert it to MP4 format, and then do a drag and drop while your View is in harddrive mode.(Internal Memory).
 
Hope this helps...

I use Limewire as well, i have downloaded full movies like beerfest and superbad. both worked great. i did convert both with AVC in both formats ( MP4 and WMV) in my opinion the WMV quality was better.

Scorpios, I got a question for you...
 
I'm curious, once you convert the movie to wma, how do you get it on your View and get it to play in that format?
 
Come to think about it, what program do you use to convert it to wma?

do you mean wmv? i use AVC and they work fine. also if you look at the specs, it does say that the view does WMV files.

Re: Where do you download your movies?

from my living room

dvd shrink to rip them off the dvd onto my hard drive

handbrake to convert them in to h.264 codec mp4s,  use the ipod low res preset ,  I can get a full length movie down to about 500 MB

Handbrake works 100 times better then the anyvideoconverter and it is still free.
