    I download a movie online, an AVI when i play it on my pc it comes up with the movie in the middle and on top and bottom a black space... Like if i burn it to a disk will it play full screen in my dvd player?

    Is this normal for those black space to be their?

    The movie is for The Ringer

    Let me know Thanks.

    Go buy the movie and don't download it illegally. That should solve the problem.

    What makes you believe that a downloaded movie is automatically considered illegal???

    Bunch of public domain (read that as mostly very old) movies can be found here ...

    seems to me the ringer was a fairly recent movie. But let's ask the source.

    Where'd you get it, Deanznet?

    Sorry about that.

    I had to look up "The Ringer" on IMDB.com. It came out Christmas week in 2005. The title still not not not ring any bells and none of the cast member names sounded. I do recall seeing a trailer in the fall for some kind of comedy about the special olympics. I will go back into my cave now.

    heh.......no worries, mate.......I was just curious as to where he downloaded it, as the owners of this site have a pretty staunch policy on illegally downloaded content.

    I heard of the TV Show but never watched it. Don't even remember seeing any advertising for the 2002 movie version. Looked up Johhny Knoxvile's filmography on IMDB. Only movie on the list that I saw was MIB-II.

    Not to sound persnickety, but did you download it or buy it at best buy? Regardless, I think I'm through here.

    Well i did not download it, My freind downloaded it on a disk and gave it to me to test.

    Instead of saying My Freind i said I downloaded it.

    I went to best buy and picked up

    The Astronauts wife

    Requiem For a Dream

    Failure to launch

    War of the Worlds

    The Benchwarmers and last but not least

    Final Destination 3
