IMO VLC Media Player. Best free out there. Watch out for Videos gotten through Torrents. Always be patient and find ones with good comments, or don't bother. If upon opening one it prompts you to box to download a codec, rip your computer plug out of the wall. And upon reboot delete it. LOL. There is a new breed of malware going around about a year now. Rogue programs. Not really viruses as we think of them. But they tie enough stuff together with a click of a button to take over your registry, run over you Virus Protection, and even mark it as a virus. Its not fun, and happened to me.

CD'* aren't usually large enough to hold commercial movies (800mb), where DVD'* are (4.7gb). The media looks the same, the difference is in the layers and compression ability. You do need a DVD burner though. Older PC'* only have CD-R or CD-R+W capabilities.

Yep, now way out of this one. Your computer either burns DVD'* or it doesn't. It has to have DVD burner. The older or cheaper ones can play DVD'* but not burn them.

I assume your getting these DVD rips from torrent sites? You will usually be able to find these with copy'* running just under 700MB. These will burn to CD, but are of less quality of the larger ones.
