    Hi
    I hope some one can help with a problem I have with downloading films bought on the internet and burning to DVD.

    I am downloading films in DVD quality- the file is:
    Codec-Divx, Format- .avi,
    Bit rate-1562kbps ( some a little lower),
    FPS: 29.97, File size is Between 1500-1900.
    When they are downloaded the picture seems to be slightly jumpy or jerky, I have used quicktime,VLC and windows media player and all are still jumpy.

    If anyone can help I would be very greatfull

    Many thanks

    From where are you downloading them? From the source we could ascertain the defined quality.

    where did you "buy" from? it might be the seeders, sorry, authorized sellers, issue distributing the film.

    Are you still downloading other things when you try watching these films? Or is the hard drive being accessed by something else? Usually you need to have nothing else going on to get quality DVD-format playback, especially if you're using an older Mac (i.e. PPC).

    It's probably the camera shake from the guy in the theater recording the movie.

    I highly doubt that a site selling full length feature films for one dollar is legit. :confused:

    The sites Bogus. Real movies aren't available in DviX. And most certainly not for a 1$

    don't trust a site like that. it just looks bad, it probably is bad.

    there's nowhere you can buy movies legally for that cheap without something being wrong.

    You should probably think about figuring this out on your own. Not exactly a legitimate topic to discuss here.

    iTunes but you can't burn to DVD.

    Pretty much no legit download of movies will allow you to burn to DVD.
