    I'm a streaming media phreak but now I'm thinking - maybe it's time to download the movies instead.

    My very first move towards the movie torrent soirée has ended in a bit of a disaster though because having downloaded said movie, Windows Media Player (WMP) and VLC (aka VideoLAN Client) both gag and while one (WMP) goes off looking for a codec and the DRM (Digital Rights Management) to open the file, the other (VLC) plays the movie I downloaded as gobbledygook (which takes 46-seconds)!

    I should mention that on the subject of DRM, most of the time WMP goes off looking for this on a non-existent web site. However, on one occasion it did in fact find a license but this turned out to be a trojan.

    FWIW, the movie (and only movie so far) I have downloaded is 'Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.' If someone could kindly provide assistance then on how I go about actually watching downloaded movie torrents - I would be incredibly grateful to you. :)

    Try using k-lite codec pack:

    Code:
    http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm
    I like the "mega" version myself.

    This should have everything you need to play almost any movie file out there.

    Enjoy!

    Try finding a private site where you know the torrents are good. Going to big sites like Mininova and TPB are ingredients for disaster for your pc.

    btw that movie is not yet released ..chk imdb release date..

    so it is highly likely that u downloaded a fake torrent of the movie that can be never played.

    download movies from mininova and read the comments b4 u download a movie so u know that it is fake or not..as it is fake u l end up with trojans as it downloads viruses in the name of missed codecs.

    or download movies from private trackers so there wont be any fakes.
