    Any good, legal, paid, easy way to download movies to a PC (to then transfer into my Android device)? Like a PC version of the itunes movie store I guess, but without the silly 24h time limits and such - ? Surely there's gotta be something...

    The whole torrent thing is growing a bit tedious I think

    Nothing that isn't riddled with DRM unfortunately. The movie industry is really slow at jumping on this.

    Your best bet that's legal is copying DVD's you own to your PC then converting them to MP4 for your phone.

    I have a droid 2 and it came pre-loaded with blockbuster. I'm sure that the same app is on the market

    I'd second this but it is tedious even with easy-to-use-apps. Good luck finding something that meets all your criteria, OP. From what I've seen you can probably get one or two but not all of them from a given source.

    I use DVDFab (I bought the full version online but they have a free 30 trial) and there are numerous options for converting your movies to virtually any format. I have converted our entire DVD library to the appropriate format for our Microsoft Zune devices and this format plays on my Droid X. I'm a 44 year old mom and I figured it out so it's not to difficult. DVDFab also has the option of making a back up copy of your movies on disc. Good Luck:)

    Encode HD - has options for different phones. Works great.

    Thanks for replies

    The blockbuster app worked poorly at best on my device, unusable really

    mSpot seemed ok to stream to device, but the playback was so inconsistent and erratic that it too is basically unusable

    ok I guess I'll keep looking/waiting

    oh wow. I'm sorry. I'll keep my hears open and if I hear something I'll let you know.
