    Do you download movies to your computer?
    Just download the movie to your computer and sideload it to your Playbook.
    The Playbook plays avi files the best.
    As for size, I have a 16gb and just make sure that I delete a movie after I watch it. The PB is small, so I tend to watch movies on it only when waiting for the wife!

    A DVD copy should be about 1-1.5GB, a 720p feature film probably will be 4-5GB, and a good rip of a 1080p movie is about 8-10GB. So that gives you some DVD quality movies, or a couple of 720p movies, and just a single 1080p movie.
    Movies usually come with AC3 or DTS audio, so you will need to convert the audio stream to AAC or MP3 before putting them back together. MKV support is supposed to come with TabletOS 2.0.

    All that said, if you are hanging out at home, you can use ORB or SonicAir to stream movies and music from a powerful desktop computer.

    Once you get beyond the issue of legality (not judging at all), reading here, some folks want the absolute best quality HD versions and many torrent sites do create great copies but sometimes sacrifice the ultimate quality going for an efficient size.
