    the movies? I myself have not subscribe to the site yet, a buddy of mine gets his movies from there. He mentioned that he has to convert them to DVD format? I'm not exactly sure what it is that he does to convert them, hoping you can help me with what software I would need to convert them to be burned to a dvd disc.

    Most downloads are ususlly avi and can converted to dvd by either dvd flick ( free ) or something like winavi and then can be burner to a blank dvd.


    BTW for what they charge, Netflix is by far cheaper ( only to watch of course )

    If they are movies,downloads are most likely mp4, avi(Divx, Xvid...), .divx, mpeg, WMV, MKV. These are the formats most popular, with AVI being at top I would say.DVD Flick supports all of them.

    http://beginwithsoftware.com/videoguides/dvd-flick-guide.html

    Another format would be RMVB, you need a different software , like Winavi(payware) or Movie DVD Maker(free):

    http://www.topdrawerdownloads.com/download/104952

    It could be the entire DVD compilation in a ISO container(those are usually >3-4GB files), in which case you just burn a disc image with Nero or ImgBurn.

    All those could be in a rar archive, in which case you use Winrar to unpack the archive and get your video, then convert it.

    Has nothing to do with Netflix,Blockbuster or such, does not infringe any forum rules( same way if someone says I got my movie from mininova.org,or on LimeWire) as long as a direct link to download is not posted. Easynews is a server that can be accessed by Usenet clients. Is like a paid for, fancy, fast "torrent server", so the users actually pay for their downloads.

    Okay the files are .avi.
    My buddy was saying to use WinRAR to unzip them and then to use xilisoft to convert them to dvd format.

    iluvendo - thanks for the link to dvd flick, i'll try that first as I don't really want to pay forty bucks for xilosoft.

    Thanks everyone.

    Thjere is no reason to pay money for a program. DVD Flick does the job( I included a link to a guide for DVD Flick in my previous post). If you wanted to buy something, I would go for ConvertxtoDVD.

    thanks cyprusrom. I did see your link and send my apolizes for not including you in the thank you, as your email was very informant and answered all the questions and explained all the file types as I did not know at the time of the posting ( i should of joined EasyNews before posting the question) and I would prefer not to pay for the program if not needed so thanks again.
