    Lots of people complain about not being able to use Netflix, Hulu, etc., on their Playbook. I have about 2000 songs on my Playbook so when I'm not in Wifi range, I still have plenty of music to listen to. For video, I loaded Office Space, Borat, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Dark Knight, and Avatar on my Playbook. These are all films that I find that I can watch over and over.

    What movies do you consider 'must haves' on your Playbook that can be viewed over and over? If you own a 16gb version, space is precious, so they must be true classics.Lots

    Obviously The Expendables! Basically the greatest motion picture of all time. Seriously though you gotta add some western, Unforgiven would be one for me. Shawshank if you want a drama. Throw me genres I'll throw you movies.

    For movies and tv shows I just use the other streaming sites. I never used hulu until I got the PB and then I used it once or twice to see if it worked and afterward I continued to use the sites I normally use. I'm not sure what the big deal about hulu or netflix is. If you know where to look you can find a lot more content that streams just as well and with less ads. But of course those sites I use probably aren't legitimate since I routinely watch movies on them that are still playing in theaters (for better quality movies wait for the day they come out on DVD) and TV show episodes pop up an hour after they have aired.

    I'm sure its illegal to host the content these sites host. But I've yet to ever hear of anyone getting in trouble for watching a streaming video. So meh I'm happy. The only things I download are the things I will actually watch more than once and the movies I want in ultra high quality. Neither comes up much, Streaming is just easier for me.

    Just put Fast & Furious 1 -5 on my PB. Around 400Mb each (about 480p but that's ok considering I won't hook it up to any HDTV).
    Next is LOTR 1-3, and then if there is some times, I'll put the Harry Potter 1-7b!
    Perhaps then.. I could convince my gf to allow me to upgrade it for a 64Gb version?
    Wish me luck!

    I've got three movies on there so far...

    Apocalypse Now: Redux - 2.2 GB
    Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps - 1.42 GB
    The Good, The Bad and The Ugly - 2.94 GB

    I rip my DVD's using Handbrake (Mac) and manually copy them to the PB. I don't load them through desktop manager. That takes forever (literally).

    Plus I got a bunch of music on there. All I can say is I'm glad I got the 64. Always get as much computing power and you can afford, even if you can't afford it.

    If I have to pick only once, for me it would be The Matrix Trilogy HD, Lord of The Rings Trilogy HD and Ninja Assasin... But as I have about 200 HD movies already in My Library, I just shuffle 10 of then on my PB from time to time, as I do also with some TV Series and Anime...

    I just remember that I have lots of YouTube clips on my SGT. I used to downloaded them using MTube. So now it resides on my PB too!
    Most of it consist of Annoying Orange series, FreddieW, SMOSH, and few music clip of the 'diva' Mariah Carey. LOL

    As with everything Playbook related, there was a twitter from RIM that .mkv support was coming in summer. Ok, you can stop laughing now.
