    Anyone have any experience downloading public domain movies like at this site:
    http://www.publicdomainflicks.com/ I was just wondering which format is best to burn them onto a DVD for playing on a tv for the best viewing. Anyone?

    Thanks

    I randomly picked a film on this website, here are the download options :

    As MPEG2 is the biggest file, I assume it is the less compressed, so the highest quality, so the best one to burn on a DVD for best viewing...
