Not full length movies. but mtspace has a bunch. You just gotta use the right keywords to search for them. try MotoGP, motorcycle and stuff like that. Same with photobucket and youtube and all the other hosting sites.

edit: actually i dont think the software on these will let it work, nevermind. You have to install a codec for any I know and I don't think these things let you.

yeah the mp3 player doesn't have the necessary programming to play the movies I know about.

I use ISO Hunt and some other bit torrent search engines. Then a free, open source, spyware free download client like Azureus to download the stuff.

You should look up what types of videos are supported on your player though. You may need to convert the stuff and resize it before they'll play on there.

Compatibility: Zen Vision:M supports many video formats, such as DivX™ 4 & 5, XviD, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG4-SP, WMV9 and Motion-JPEG, which means more choice and fewer restrictions on the types of video formats you can use

that is straight from the website...can it support full length videos with any of these formats?

Do a search on isohunt for something you want. Download the .torrent file. Open up the .torrent file in Azureus and it will start downloading.

Bittorrent works different than probably anything you're used to. The file is broken up into very small chunks and labelled. Those small chunks are then downloaded in no particular order and reassembled in the correct order. This way, you can download from tons of people at once, but not only that, you can upload a chunk to someone else even if you don't have the entire file. Some of the bittorrent terminology so you don't get lost... Seed: someone uploading who has the entire file. Leetch: someone downloading. Peer: someone you're exchanging chunks with.

So you want the "S" or "Seed" column number to not be too low in order to actually get the file you want.

I think he is trying to steal full movies. Youtube limits their videos to 10 mins to prevent such nonsense.

You're missing the video codecs. You need to download DivX and Xvid. Those are the most common codecs. There's programs like G-Spot which can look at a file and tell you which codecs are needed to play the audio and video in the file in case you don't know how it was encoded.

After you install the right codecs, you should just be able to open it with windows media player.

Yeah that is totally possible... You could burn them in DVD format so you can watch them on your TV too... If you are copying them from a source DVD then you'll need a decrypter along with your burning software... I recommend DVD43... It's free... However the current version (3.9) doesn't work for me... I used 3.7 or 3.8, which can be found by Googling... Using this method you'll also have backups of your current DVD stash...

Or...

You can decrypt the DVD into mpeg format (which I am guessing you are already doing) and most likely burn it to CD... Most videos you download are already converted/compressed into a file size small enough to burn to CD. Converters are readily available, but I don't p!ss with that so I know zero about them.
