I'm neither of the guys you ask but try www.mininova.org or www.thepiratebay.org or try to become a member of www.demonoid.com. These are torrent sites and to download a movie from them you'll need a torrent client, utorrent is one of the better ones, downloadable from www.utorrent.com/downloads/complete

Forget about mininova - the site has gone legit (under extreme pressure).

Isohunt is also worth a look.

The first thing is to ensure you have an internet connection with a decent download speed.

plien I split your post off here, as I thought that would be more appropriate.

There are a couple of different ways to download movies.

The first & easiest way is to go to a web site like http://www.cinemanow.com/ & pay to download the video directly to your pc. There are plenty of these sites & a Google search will reveal them. However care is needed as not all these sites are of the highest standards in either video quality or ethics. It is best if you have some sort of 'indicator' as to the sites' reliability (like WOT - Web of Trust, a Firefox add on) before you start randomly going onto them.

The second is by P2P file sharing. This is for free, but, technically, you have to be very careful if you do not want to infringe copywrite laws. The idea of P2P file sharing is that many computers on the net have the same video. File sharing enables your computer to 'grab' bits of the file from all these computers & reassemble it on your computer as the full video. These bits are often called 'torrents'. There are some sites dedicated to this - Demonoid, The Pirate Bay, MiniNova are just 3. However, some of these sites have 'waiting lists' to join & most have strict rules that you must re-share items, you cannot just take.
I also found a quite useful bit of free software (called torrentfetcher) which will actually search the web for torrents for you.
Once the torrents have been found then they have to be downloaded. uTorrent is quite a popular one.
Again care needs to be taken about what sites you visit & it is sensible to virus scan anything you download before you attempt to play it!!

Thank you all for your advice.
Now I hope that finally I can find some old gems. But first I`ll try and download the Milennium Trilogy.
Just checked and download speed is 3,77 Mbit/sec.

If you have a Usenet account (news) and you a little bit more than average about computers/internet you could try SABnzbd. http://sabnzbd.org/ (or another program to download from the Usenet servers)

You also need to use a NZB search engine like: http://www.binsearch.info/ or http://www.nzbclub.com/

Quite a list you got there maxeboy. Das Boot is one of my favorite movies of all times. Is that what you got in your private library or what you recommend?

Demonoid currently has over 61,000 movies to download. While there are undoubtedly duplicates & multiple language offerings amongst that, it is a lot of stuff!! :D

Other than the sites mentioned---is anyone sourcing Thai -or -- Farang Thai dubbed Movies form any other site ? I used to use NattaWatt.... http://www.nattawat.org/index.php?sid=7 ... 8eb41375bf & Warezz-bb but of late there selection of Farang movies dubbed into Thai has been very ordinary....


**Disclaimer-of course all movie sites must be above board ---fully legal and sanction by the proper authorities- I in no way wish to use this post to introduce the foreign concept of pirated movies into Thailand. If in Doubt just PM them to me, :shock: :
