Free DVD Movie Downloads - A Total Scam

Jul 20, 2008
DVD (Digital Versatile/Video Disc) is one of the popular formats used for packaging movies, as it offers excellent video and audio quality. Today, there are a number of websites offering free DVD movie downloads, which have become hot favorites among movie lovers.

Some of the websites charge a one time fee for free DVD movie downloads. Most websites offer free DVD movie downloads of films from all major film studios including Disney and Warner Brothers. These websites offer their movies in a wide range of categories such as Action, Animation, Cartoon, Classics, Comedies, Drama, Horror, Musicals, Science Fiction, Romance, and Thrillers. Certain websites allow users to browse through the categories either by release date or by popularity.

Nowadays movie providers offer the DVD movies in various compressed formats, in order to reduce the size of the original DVD movies. The final movie size can be reduced to less than 700 MB using these compression softwares (codecs) from the original DVD file size of nearly 4.8 GB. Some of the popular codecs used for compressing DVD movies are DivX and XviD. To view these files, users also need to install one of these codecs in their PC. These are the ideal file formats for movie downloads, particularly if you have lower bandwidths. The quality of the movies remains the same as that of the DVD.

Though some people think that downloading movies and files are unethical, when done properly and through the right channels then the customer, has nothing to fear. But remember to be careful where you get the movies from because there are allot of people out on the internet looking to cause you harm

Certain websites even allow users to upload their collection of DVDs which other users can download from these websites. Although illegal, the method is very popular among the younger generation.

Some of the original DVD movies provided for downloads usually have larger file sizes, and might take hours to download using normal methods. Using softwares such as download managers can greatly increase the speed of such movie downloads. These download managers also have the ability to resume broken downloads, which is otherwise impossible if your internet connection freezes or breaks during downloading.

Thus with a computer and a broadband internet connection, users can download high quality DVD movies free of cost, and have the choice to search and download from hundreds of websites offering free DVD movie downloads online.
