    Newbie Question

    Hi All,

    I'm new so be gentle with me. Is there a way to get direct downloads from the older trailers on this site that are not recent films released? Also, how does a person go about getting direct downloads for themselves? Is there a easy procedure for this? Third and final question, what kind of software do you need to copy trailers from DVD's on to your hard drive to have and share with others? Thanks in advance.

    welcome

    I can answer the 3rd question....

    u need a

    - DVD-ROM Drive
    - ripping program (e.g. smartripper) to decrypt the DVD files
    - DVD software player like Power DVD or WinDVD to playback the trailers
    - optional 5.1 soundcard/Speakers to enjoy 5.1 sound from trailers that support them =)

    get more info from here =) or just PM me if u need more help and maybe we can even share trailer...

    maybe someone has to make a DVD Ripping FAQ for ML and make it a sticky...

    thanks tisoy,

    Just downloaded the ripper. Now I have lots of work to do, in my spare time of course. Question, once you have ripped a trailer onto your hard drive, how can that trailer be turned into quicktime movie format? Is this possible?

    thanks again,

    Do you really need to convert vob to lower-quality QuickTime format? If quality is more important than size, then keep trailer in it's original format on your hard drive and play vob files with PowerDVD program.
