Watching and downloading TV and movies legally on your PCcan be a great resource, especially now that great websites are coming online where you can watch or download great movies in a legal way. But hold on! Before you spend the next month watching every Hollywood Blockbuster released over ten years, there are a few easy things you can do to speed up the time spent downloading them and even increase the download time!
Firstly, I would strongly recommend you close all browser windows and other programmes you may have running in the background. This is only until you learn the other stuff we recommend to get your download speed up! Then you can feel free to carry on as normal whilst your movie is downloading in the background....
Secondlyl, we always recommend you actually download two of your favourite movies at the same time. This works great because it creates a "race" between the two and we often find that in most cases it actually increases the speed at which a single download would go.
Thirdly, be sure to check that you have;
A) Available memory on your harddrive, how irritating would it be to have spent the last couple of hours downloading your movies only to get the message "not enough disk space" one minute before the end? Ensure you have atleast 2 GB for a single movie, and a minimum of 750Mb.
B) Available time to download. If you?re going to download a movie, depending on how fast your internet connection is, your going to need from 30 minutes to several hours to download a full movie file. On average, if you are downloading a movie at 38 Kb/s it can take around 7 hours, against the 12 minutes if you?re downloading it at 1.5MB/s.
If you get yourself organised and ensure everything is set, downloading movies online will be an easy task for you.
1 word of advice; always make sure you download your movies from a legal source and don?t make illegal copies to sell!
