    I was just browsing some websites such as alfamovie.com and zml.com. I would like to download some movies for my phone, but want to make sure that I am downloading from a reputable site. Can anyone recommend a good site for this? Also, I see some of them offer to download in ipod or DivX (not sure what DivX even is) formats. Should I choose one of these formats or just choose DVD format and convert it? Is there specific settings I should choose for the Eris? I really am new to this, so dumb it down for me ok? :p Thanks!

    Download a movie in DVD quality from torrents. Use a video converter to convert it to MP4. Put it on the flash card and you're good to go.

    When I was on Crackberry (yes, I know, buying a storm was a bad idea) I found this link and love to share it with people. I have never had a bad download from this link. Scroll through the hundreds of movies, download and enjoy. They are already formatted to work on most mobile devices.

    My first movies post... - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com

    It would be better to just use torrents and search for movies in MP4 format. That site is good, but it limits you to just those movies. Chances are, the guy originally got them from torrents and re-upped using Megaupload since torrents may not be on everyone's phone.

    Torrents refer to BitTorrent which is more or less a P2P (peer to peer) file sharing setup. You can share large files while downloading them from multiple users. Others are also downloading from you at the same time. There are multiple sites set up to find torrents.

    Some people love it and some don't, others call it piracy.

    EDIT: Not judging in anyway when I say that. Just stating a fact.

    Yeah the beauty of torrents is that the more people downloading it the faster it gets it is non centralized, unlike FTP, so you download bits and pieces from all of the others with the files! Check ThePirateBay.com or Demonoid.com for movies in .mp4.

    Yes you need a client as well, like the previous poster I recommend uTorrent but BitTorrent 6.0 should work too.

    If you don't know don't bother. It's a complicated task to convert many videos. Which program, what settings, which codec, is the codec installed, etc.

    Just stick with Crackberry or other sites to get pre-converted video. Also, don't do torrents. They are traceable and you don't want that. Be smart when you get videos from the NET.

    I used SUPER in the past to convert divx/xvid for my LG env. Switched over to handbrake after I found a good tutorial. I'll find the link when I get home. I can rip from DVD to MP4 (x264) in under 30 minutes. That's with 2 pass on a Dual Core 3.0 with 4 gigs of RAM.
