Tbh, I don't know how to fix your problem WITH limewire.

But, I know how to fix your problem.

Mininova - I get music and dvds from there.
EZTV - I get Tv eps from here.
Games Torrents - I get games from here.
UTorrents - My dad uses this one sometimes, I think he gets dvds and music from there.

Can I just ask something - is BitTorrent any good? A couple of my friends use it and say it is good for getting movies, plus downloading music.

BitTorrent is the downloader, you need ot get the files off the net (mininova) but yeah it's pretty good

What, so do you use Mininova to get movies, etc but you need BitTorrent to use Mininova?

Pretty much.
You find what you want on a site like mininova, then click download. It will download a .tor file or a torrent file. That then has to be opened by a program like BitTorrent which will then download it.

It depends on what you are downloading as to what the size will be.

I would give zipped files a wide berth unless you're really sure of where they're coming from.

I use zaycev

I heard that 2, stuff about the government being able to view anything you download (STUPID JOHN KEYS). Im at uni now and they told us if we caught, the internet provider will shut down the whole campus's internet database and we'll have to pay everything.

Can I just ask the following questions - this is from Mininova:

1. How can I tell if it is really the movie or not, through the size of the file?
2. What are 'Seeds'?
3. What are 'Leechers'?

Most torrents should have comments about them, I don't download them if they don't have good comments. More Seeders and Leachers the better, will download faster.

If I was downloading I'd try the 7th one down on the 26th Oct.

1.From the comments
2.Seeders are people who are supplying the movie
3.Leachers are people who are downloading it

I just downloaded it, but I cant get it onto iTunes - I think it's because of the file format.

Anyone know a good place where I can convert the file format to mpeg4 or something like that?

I use Total Video Converter to convert shit.

Grrr....

With help from SMASH, I converted Coach Carter from AVI to MP4. At least I thought I did.

This is what comes up when I look at it in my documents:



I have tried to get it open in iTunes, but it wont work...but it does work in Windows Media Player Confused

Anyone know what to do?

Oh. That's the same file.
When it converts it, it keeps the original file and makes a converted version of it too. Try and find where it saves to after converted and there it is.
