    In the statement below can someone give me a breakdown of this torrent file name:

    Unaccompanied.Minors.DVDRip.XViD-iMBT

    iMBT- What does this mean? or what does it tell me, do I need codecs of a certain type.

    XViD just basically means it's in avi format and you'll probably need divx to play it. The only other important thing to know is that it is a dvd rip.

    Those "extentions" are called tags. Treading on dangerous ground here. Torrent files typically have "tags" after the media title. Usually you can guess what they mean. These tags contain information about the movie, tv show, etc, eg XViD is the name of a codec, CAM or TS (telesync) means it was done with a camcorder, the language ITA ESP FR RU GER BRA PT etc. Also there will be a tag naming the "ripping group" iMBT in this case.
