    Is it legal to stream new movies online?
    You all know what i mean by streaming movies online. I'm doing it now and I'll keep on doing it but i want to know whether it is legal. As far as i know it is legal because it's just like watching a youtube video so just the host can get blamed. But if it's not then i would appreciate if you tell me and explain why or under what laws? Or if it is legal then also why? Thanks

      It is illegal.

  5. QUESTION:
    is it illegal to STREAM movies online?
    I know downloading movies online is illegal because of the whole napster thing but I know there is plenty of sites where you can stream movies online and not have to download them. Is it illegal to stream movies online or are there stipulations?

    • ANSWER:
      The problem with streaming movies online (even though you are not "downloading" them) is that the movie source has to come from somewhere. The movies that you are streaming have been illegally uploaded to a website host.

      To answer your question directly: no, it is not illegal. Those site that are hosting the movies are illegal. You will find that those web links to the movies are not going to be active for very long. There are whole companies dedicated to shutting down web links and websites that have free movie streaming.

  11. QUESTION:
    Is it illegal to watch movies online?
    Is it illegal to STREAM movies online in Australia and are the uploaders of those movies doing anything illegal by uploading them on there websites?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, the viewing of any copyrighted content without purchasing the rights to view is illegal. That means that all films and television programs are illegal to be streamed online, even if it is only for personal use. That being said, nobody is ever charged for it and as of a recently introduced law in Australia, you must have three warnings before being charged. Uploaders of this such material suffer much harsher consequences, mostly hefty fines of several tens of thousands.

  14. QUESTION:
    How can I run movies faster on my pc?
    Just got a brand new laptop, there's not really anything on it. My internet connection is as fast as connections get. I don't understand why when I try to stream movies online it takes hours to load. Everything else is incredibly fast, what's the deal?

    I'm using Chrome btw.

    • ANSWER:
      Glad you don't use I.E. There is a few things that determine your streaming speed. First is internet connection. Second clear you cache, It helps load the video faster. streaming downloads partial video into your ram and your cache and is like temporary downloading a video so clearing the cache should make it faster. third, some streaming players are faster than others. So look on different sites or different mirrors. Also close other programs and tabs. Streaming takes up a lot of internet bandwidth so anything that is up will slow it down.

  15. QUESTION:
    What would you do if an alien UFO hovered above your house and tapped into your internet to communicate home?
    It'd probably slow your bandwidth down a lot, making it impossible to stream movies online. Would you be angry with them for stealing your internet without permission? Or be cool with it?

    • ANSWER:
      So these aliens home planet has an IP address? Why not just find a server farm and tap that? Then they could have nearly unlimited bandwidth.

      Alternatively, why not take one of the deep space network radio telescopes? Better control where the signal goes and a better internet connection.

  18. QUESTION:
    how can i watch full movies on my htc desire?
    I normally stream movies online but how can i put these movies onto my htc desire and watch them?

    • ANSWER:
      I look at it this way when it comes to watching movies online... Like anything in life you get what you pay for and well its the same here, free sites make you jump through hoops and the quality is poor, their are some poor paid options as well but I've done my homework (I'm a movie buff) and these are the best pick of the bunch without question.

  19. QUESTION:
    How many MBPS would I need for movie streaming and online gaming?
    If I wanted to stream movies and play online games (with good connection and no lag) how many megabytes per second would I need?

    • ANSWER:
      For gaming a basic DSL connection is more than enough, though when downloading those big updates you'll wait a bit, haha. As for movie streaming I'd recommend a 3 MBPS connection. Back when I had Road Runner I had 1 meg and never experienced lag. It's all on how much you are willing to spend. Just go with 1-3 Megs and you'll be fine.

  21. QUESTION:
    how can i watch full movies on my htc desire?
    I normally stream movies online but how can i put these movies onto my htc desire and watch them?

    • ANSWER:
      Streaming and download have different rights, at least from legitimate services. I say that becasue it would be a copyright violation to download/capture streams from legitimate streaming services. If you want a file you will have to buy the download rights from a download service, and at that one with a codec/DRM compatible with your phone.

    • ANSWER:
      Only certain phones are steaming compatable. That is, only certain phones can display TV and movies on them. And then if your phone is able to, then you need to get the plan from your cell phone company. You can not download a program to make your phone able to display movies like you want.

    Can i get sued for downloading movies directly from websites?
    My web service provider is optimum online. Is it possible for me to get sued if i stream movies online and if i download them straight from a website?
    Please try to leave your sources

    • ANSWER:
      I don't have a source, but my understanding is you can get sued civilly for downloading movies. There have been quite a number of stories in the news about lawsuits filed against individuals who download music and movies. In terms of streaming movies, that one is likely still a question mark. There is no real way to know as streaming has become more popular in the last few years.

  30. QUESTION:
    Is it illegal to stream movies online that you didn't pay for?
    Basically my friend was watching a movie online at my house from some site. I know it is illegal to upload movies and to download them but if you just watch the videos that the people uploaded is that illegal? I don't want to get in trouble for it but it seems like the only people who should get in trouble is the owners of the site and the people who uploaded the movies. What is the deal with this?

    • ANSWER:
      Only if "didn't pay for" means "didn't pay for something that people are expected to pay for" which means "stole".

      Nothing you need to worry about, really, but if he was at your house, wasn't he using your Internet service provider that identifies your address? I wouldn't let him make it a habit.

  31. QUESTION:
    Can the computer repair tech know my browsing history?
    Ok, I admit I was looking at streaming porn movies online. I dont have pics or videos saved to my harddrive and my browser does not keep a history of the sites I visit. But still, will their techs find out? Its not child pornography just adults.

    • ANSWER:
      Well there might be a few JPEG or Videos in the temporary Internet files folder. But I repaired so many other's people's computers and 90% of them had porno on there or pictures of them naked on there.

      But its not my fault that I had to find them and that I had to see them because they wanted all their pictures saved and the useless stuff was deleted.

      I would not worry unless it was you or it was illegal stuff.

      Just remember a man a women had sex for each person living so do not worry about it.

    As you can see, I'm pretty clueless when it comes to stuff so I'd love an opinion!

    • ANSWER:
      Yes! Apple products are super safe. If you go on 1channel.ch , those stream almost any movie or tv show you can think of. & Netflix as well... But, running movies & videos & stuff like that will heat up your computer so you should buy a lap desk thing with a fan in it. Logitech makes one

  40. QUESTION:
    Whats the difference between watching movie online or downloading it?
    When I watch movie online or when I download it then whats the difference in terms of bytes am using? Is it same? If yes, then why people watch movie online?
    Whats the size of an average movie?

    • ANSWER:
      A Downloaded movie is about 800mb whilst a streamed one is usually compressed (in size and quality) to 250-400mb.

      Well when you download a movie it is almost always higher quality and you get to keep it, until you delete it at least.. this also allows you to burn it onto disc's and watch it in your lounge room.

      Whilst watching it online is called streaming, you only get to watch it once (well until you close the browser) and it is stored in your temporary memory so when your computer is turned off it is lost for ever. This is a good way to eat up your bandwidth because usually i start buffering a streamed movie and go and get a drink, when i get back i go to click close on iTunes and accidently click close on Internet Explorer (Google Chrome) which means i have to re-enter the site and start buffering again wasting maybe 50mb of my Download cap (doesn't seem like much but it is for me lol)

      Streamed movies are usually pixelated and annoying to watch so i prefer to download - Need tips on how to download? Add me on msn - Mitchellrk@hotmail.com

      NOTE - DOWNLOADING AND WATCHING MOVIES IS HIGHLY ILLEGAL I DO NOT ENCOURAGE IT... Unless you know what your doing.. Or if your in France its not illegal.
