The avi files you download aren't raw avi files, they are divx/xvid encoded. You'll need some type of transcoder.

It is probably easier just to acquire the dvd images instead of just the plain avi files. Of course the dvd images are going to be around 4GB.

No, I can't give you details. What your doing is copyright infringement. You'll have to find that out for yourself.

google is your friend.
