    Hello everyone. I'm a total newbie here so forgive me if I'm in the wrong place or am trampling all over protocol etc! I recently joined a movie site where you can download movies in various formats eg DivX, iPad, iPhone. I'm not having much luck at all with it and the site admin don't seem to be able to help me.

    When I d/l a movie in DivX format, it does not fully d/l and the last 10 or 20 mins of the films is always missing. When I d/l in iPad format and transfer the movie to itunes for synching with my iPad, I end up with sound only - no picture. It's very frustrating and I can't seem to solve the issue (probably partly due to my lack of technical knowledge in any case!).

    Can anyone suggest any help please?

    Tks

    If the film is not fully downloading then it is something to do with the site you are downloading from. Again with the sound issue it is most likely something to do with the file.


    Only thing to try is VLC player, if it doesn't work on that then it is definitely an issue with the file.
