    I wonder if we'll ever see a video download market app on the PB.

    Thank you. How would I go about doing this with a movie on iTunes? I tried dragging & dropping, but no luck...

    I wonder which will be the first video download service to land on the PB and future BlackBerry phones. Zune HD, iTunes, Amazon, or will 7digital get licensing to join the game?

    One final though, in the absence of a legal way to acquire movies from the major studios does file sharing become an acceptable option?

    iTunes DRM will not let you play video on competing devices. iDevices need such anti-competitive measure in place to remain relevant.

    Okay, ta. So, if I copy a DVD onto my hard-drive can I just drag and drop it into the video folder on my Playbook? Or is there an easier way? (Apologies if this is a dim question! ) Ta!

    Amazon Prime works flawlessly and Crackle.com works well also.

    Use forum search and there is a list of movies somewhere to download. But I am hesitant to link it out in the open.

    So if I understand this I can purchase a movie from Amazon Prime and it will down load in Playbook in the right format? Is there a format selection process or is it automatic?

    Handbrake if they're home movies (or other movies with little or no copyright). I personally haven't found out how to rip commercial DVDs with handbrake, but I think others have. If you can't figure it out, then you can do what I do and get TuneBite, which would rip commercial DVDs and make iTunes movies playable on your PlayBook, but it costs money (I think it was $40).

    i use a product called DVD Catalyst to convert any DVD to a pc file. i then copy the file to my PB. The cool thing is that you can select the specific device you are going to play the file on. it is dirt cheap and works beautifully.

    A lot of those movies are formated for the phones, which would look horrible on the PlayBook (IMO)
