Watching download on dvd player


My friend has recently set up bit torrent for me and i am amazed of all the downloadable movies available.

I have a few problems, when i have downloaded said files they wont play on windows media player, it says searching for codec or something and then jsut plays the sound. How do rectify this?

Also when i burn a movie to dvd media, how do i get it to play on my dvd player/television? or will it just play straight away?

Please make responses as simple but detailed as possible as im new to all this.

Kind regards

so you are downloading movies you don’t own and trying to watch them? This is illegal and against the rules here at cdfreaks.
