The advent of the Internet has revolutionized the whole concept of entertainment. If you thought the internet was just for information or downloading songs and listening to music online, think again. The latest internet utilities allow you to watch movies online, download them and store them on your computer.
There are websites that get access to movie sneak previews, copy movie files, process them and put them on the net for people to download or watch. Still, watching movies online can mean that you are compromising on quality. The picture may be blurry or the constant flicker may distract you. To fix this problem, you will need to download and install some software that will make watching online movies a worthwhile experience. However, you must keep in mind that not all movies can be downloaded. Some can only be viewed online. Assuming the movie can be downloaded, you must have dial up, broadband, DSL and cable TV connection. You must have movie-playing software like Windows Media Player, Real Media or Quicktime.
Free movies are available through public domain. In most cases, the movies available for download are those whose copyrights have expired. There are also new movies available for the public to watch which is free of charge with no royalties.
You should also note that these movies are usually streaming mpg or mpg4 files. That means you can’t start viewing them as soon as you log on. Depending on your connection speed, you may have a small buffer space on your computer before your movie starts.
