How can I get full-screen playback for movie files?

A full-screen, 24-frames-per-second movie would weigh about 1 MB per frame, or 24MB per second. With compression this could come down to 12MB or a little more. However, that is a significantly large stream of data and no dial-up or low-bandwidth connection can handle this. Thus, movies on the Internet are made in "postage-stamp" size and at lesser frames per second, with heavy file-compression. You could download full-motion, full-screen versions if available and if you have sufficient bandwidth and time. Alternatively, you could hunt for movies in the alternative divx movie file-format. What MP3 is to music, divx is to high-quality digital video. Find divx players, rippers, and more important, links to divx movies, at freedownloadsgalore.com/divx.htm
