    Post Online movies for $1US

    This could be the future of movie viewing when broadband becomes more widestream.

    Hundreds of movies, sitcoms, etc.... all for $1 US each for three days! They stream at 100K and 300K rates.

    I dont know how they are getting past copyright, im sure they will be in the napster/kazza/etc boat very soon!

    still it would be great if such a thing became the norm..... some great classic movies in that bunch....

    just one request.... can I please borrow your servers hard drive?

    Yea, this was posted on slashdot yesterday http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=0...21&mode=thread

    Evidently in taiwan you have to register in order to own a copyright. Seems that most people dont bother to register. Its a shame that commie-china threw it's weight around to kick taiwan out of the UN and other international bodies, so while international law forbids copyright registering... there doesnt appear too much for the studios to do about it.

    I am a huge movie nut, and even though I have a VERY limited budget I manage to see the newest movies one way or another. The only problem I have with this service is the over all poor quality of it.
    1: Real Player encoded (very little chance of stealing for P2P apps)
    2: Not so great video (due to Real Player)
    3: Bad audio
    4: Did I mention it uses Real Player (I really hate it)

    If you are going to show streaming movies at least use WiMP or even better Quicktime. Although to may be worth it since you can sign up mutiple times and you get a $5 credit each time.

    if you have a linux box, you can in fact simply grab the movie for later play back... I can probbaly find the relevant post on slashdot if anyone is that interested in grabbing them.

    All Gone!

    Seems like this site died at an early age. I've been trying all day and I can't connect to the server. Kinda a bummer since I still had several movies to watch.
