i mostly download avi rips, few 720p episodes and watch them on my 14 inch widescreen notebook which totally sucks with sony MDR-EX32 earphones.

>> upgraded
now i use 22inch LG hdtv + xbox 360 for all videos

08-19-2008, 02:23 AM
I download avi rips and watch them on my 64" TV using my xbox 360.

08-19-2008, 02:50 AM
I download mainly DVD-R's and burn them to disk to watch on my tv with the surround sound system.

Occasionally I'll download an avi and watch it through my xbox but I prefer 5 channels to 2

08-19-2008, 08:59 AM
I download mainly DVD-R's and watch them on my 19 LCD.

08-19-2008, 09:24 AM
dl them -> unrar -> watch on desktop -> delete :)

08-19-2008, 09:50 AM
I didnt know the XBOX 360 played AVI's ?

08-19-2008, 10:57 AM
Use VLC Media Player to watch all DVDR and Xvid. If I like the DVDR I burn the iso or img using NERO and track all my dvd collection using Collectorz MyDVDs.

08-19-2008, 03:30 PM
dl them -> unrar -> watch on desktop -> delete :)


08-19-2008, 04:57 PM
I download AVIs or ISOs and watch 'em on computer with small screen or burn a DVD and play on big screen with DIVX DVD player. Most AVIs play on DIVX players and you can squeeze five or so movies onto one DVD+R without transcoding.

08-19-2008, 05:01 PM
Have comp connected to projector showing a 5ft screen and sound thru a 5.1 surround amp maily d/l divx and have a player but dont bother burning now

08-19-2008, 08:36 PM
Download to one of my seedboxes and stream to my hdtv via xbox 360 while controlling most of the lot with my laptop.

08-20-2008, 02:30 PM
Download with main pc, transfer to media center pc through network
and watch there.

Download mostly HD material so I want the full experience

08-20-2008, 02:57 PM
I mostly download 720p tv rips and watch on my Dell Studio 17 lappy.HD looks gorgeous.For audio bluetooth headset that came along with the laptop.Sounds really good.

08-20-2008, 02:58 PM
i see movies with 23' LCD Mornitor (1080p or 720p )

08-20-2008, 10:20 PM
download then stream to the x360w/hdmi on a 44 in panny plasma.

Regular .avi's look pretty damn good, 720p h264 is awesome.

08-22-2008, 04:17 PM

08-22-2008, 07:57 PM
I download 720p, 1080p, xvid, and DVDR.

720p/1080p I watch on my computer.
Xvid depends.. most of the time computer but sometimes I'll put it on the 360 to watch it on the TV.
DVDR i burn and watch with 360..

08-29-2008, 06:35 PM
download to pc, then transfer to laptop. sometimes otherwise :)

08-29-2008, 06:53 PM
I used to download only 700mb Avi dvd rips and burning them to DVD-r to watch on a divx dvd player. But since last month I started to get 720p movies so I opened a hole in the wall (PC room and TV are ajacent:shifty:) and passed a hdmi cable through so I can watch the movies directly from the PC. I use XBMC as media center and it's very cool.

the wife is still pissed about that hole though. :whistling

08-30-2008, 08:36 AM
720p rips on 40" and 5.1 surround... running off a media center box with a few TB of space in it :)

08-30-2008, 10:16 AM
I usually just watch things straight on my computer.

08-30-2008, 10:19 AM
I download mainly DVD-R's and burn them to disk to watch on my tv with the surround sound system.

Occasionally I'll download an avi and watch it through my xbox but I prefer 5 channels to 2

Same here. DVDs for films. Standard XviD avi's for TV shows which I either burn to disc or stick on my 2.5" HDD player. Either way it's watched on my big screen TV.

09-04-2008, 11:47 AM
a) burn on dvd
b) insert in dvd player
c) watch
open kmplayer and watch

09-04-2008, 12:35 PM
I watch em on my pc with either vlc or media player classic

09-04-2008, 03:04 PM
Depends on the quality. Normal Avi's I'll watch them on my Xbox. For HD rips I'll use my 32" HD TV as monitor. BTW the Xbox is the most amazing media player you can use. If it only could handle HD rips as well. DVDs I'll watch on my Xbox as well.

09-04-2008, 09:02 PM
Mostly I download dvdrip and DVD-R. DVDRips I watch through dvd player with USB connector (before that I copy dvdrip to USB flash memory) on 32inch TV and DVDR I burn into media and I watch in the same way as I said before :)

09-05-2008, 12:09 PM
just download to pc ...

09-06-2008, 04:12 PM
Download to my pc > Play it on VLC > If the movie is good, i copy it to my external HDD.
which right now holds over 300gb of movies. :)

09-07-2008, 07:15 PM
I search info about the movie, then I download it on my pc and then play it. After that delete :D

09-09-2008, 06:00 AM
I dont d/l movies.
I rent them.
Rip them, and then burn to a DVD-RW.
Then I watch them in vob format on my PC as I find a vob takes about half an hour which means I can watch the movie in several goes, as I am always busy and don't have 2 hours to watch a movie in full. As well as that I tend to fall asleep watching a full movie.


09-09-2008, 03:54 PM
I usually download XviD and stream it to my Xbox1 running XBMC. It's hooked up to an SDTV because DVDRips are pretty crap quality, so I find it looks better than on an HDTV.

Occasionally I download some 720p and I play those on my PC, hooked up to a 24" LCD. Very rarely I might get some 1080p but my CPU is too slow to play those, so I stream them to my Xbox 360. :)

I watch movie's on my 17" flat screen monitor.I use winavi to convert the formats and nero to burn dvdrips sometimes alcohol to burn movies for viewing.I download all type of formats because I can't wait to see the movie so I watch the movie twice once in avi or xvid format or dvdrips and then in 720p blueray or x264hd format.

09-19-2008, 04:11 PM
i watch my videos on Gom Player first
if it fails it finds the correct codec for the video, you can down and setup, after that enjoy, it is easy.
if all these don not work, i prefer VLC

09-19-2008, 05:10 PM
I download avi rips and watch them in my PC :D

09-25-2008, 09:52 AM
Until a few weeks ago I downloaded most movies in avi from an open tracker and watched them on my Infocus X2 beamer.
Unfortunately after 3 years it is now broken and the repair would be too expensive. So at the moment I have to watch everything on a 15,4" Notebook screen...

09-25-2008, 09:01 PM
i download avi rips and films hd to my PS3

09-26-2008, 12:21 AM
Mostly I download 720p movies and Tv Episodes and watch them either in my 22" pc Monitor or my 36" LCD TV.
(I have an ATI 2400 HD Card, so i have my Tv connected via HDMI),
and the audio goes from the Riviera soundcard to my Samsung HT [800w/DTS] via optic cable.

I still download a stuff in Divx/Xvid for watching in my Zen W,
and if it's something rare I still keep it even if it's not in HD.


09-26-2008, 05:03 AM
I download mainly DVDrips and burn them to disk to watch on my tv with the surround sound system,around 2% of them doesnt have no sound, probably missing something

09-26-2008, 08:44 AM

Available and fresh movies/TV series - 720p. Old stuff (art films and rare experimental videos - Karagarga, Secret Cinema...) - DivX.

Everything is playing on my LG L222WS 22" display. :)

Video player is Media Player Classic.

P.S. I am saving for a high-class 24" display...

09-29-2008, 02:17 PM
video lan is great!

10-01-2008, 08:24 PM

10-15-2008, 06:34 PM
I download a film or tv-episode with as good quality as possible, but no dvd;s. Watch on my Pc with media player classic on a 24 inch lcd(widescreen). If the codec is dodgy I use VLC.

I recently also have used my Asus EEE 901, which works great when using Windows XP (the default Xandros linux was really bad for video for some reason).

10-17-2008, 06:28 AM
Most of the time I just watch on my 15" MB Pro but if I have the time I'll burn to DVD and watch on the tv.

10-19-2008, 03:04 PM
I guess i will have to stick with 15 inch CRT, 60 Hz refresh rate for couple of years.

10-26-2008, 10:12 PM

10-26-2008, 10:31 PM
