Best way to save/watch movies on my bionic
Hello everyone! This is my first post. I am glad to be a part of this forum. So far it looks like there is a wealth of helpful information regarding my new motorola bionic. I look forward to learning as much as possible and hopefully eventually contribute. So here goes my first participation...
Sorry if this has been posted before (many times probably) but I am new to all of this and can't seem to find the info I'm looking for through the search feature.
What is the best/fastest way to save high quality full length movies to my droid bionic? I want to be able to watch good quality movies while I travel by car, train, air, whatever
Can someone please help me out and point me in the direction of where I can find a tutorial of how to best do this the easiest way? Is there a link to a previous post that explains the process?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Through my research I have discovered the following 2 methods:
1. I can download bit torrents to my home computer using a popular bittorrent site
Find/download and use a program on the computer to convert the torrents and make them viewable using a suitable video player
Next, find/download and use another program to convert the video files to a format suitable for my bionic
Is there a way/place to locate downloadable movie files that are already saved in the correct format so I can eliminate this step?
Lastly, hook up my bionic to my pc using the usb cable and save the movie on my phone's sd card
Question- do I need to load a special app onto my bionic to play these files once they are saved on the device in the proper format or will they play automatically when I open them from my sd card
2. The second option is zumocast but its not really the ideal method since I am trying to watch movies during flights and I can only access files on my home computer through zumocast when I have 4g, wifi (preferably) or some kind of service.So, I guess this is kind of a second topic (maybe I should create another thread) but at least it will help me understand how to watch movies from my phone when I do have service.
If I understand zumocast correctly, it allows me to access any movies saved to my home computers hard drive, correct? But here are my questions regarding this option
- does the host computer (the one with the files are saved on it) have to be up and running for me to access the movies or any other content? for example, if I am out of town for a week but want to access the files during that time, the computer containing the files needs to be up and running at my house the entire time I am gone?
- can i access content saved to an external hard drive (a mybook) that is hooked up to the same home pc? or do I need to move the files from the removable disk to the c drive?
Thanks again everyone! I greatly appreciate the help. I am leaving town for a week tomorrow and will be spending a lot of time in transit so, if I can get everything set up properly before I leave, this will be awesome for passing the time quicker.
