Chapter 7. Let Your Laptop Entertain You... > Downloading and Playing Movies

Downloading and Playing Movies

You can download movies from the Internet, and enjoy them on your wireless mobile computer, in just about the same way you can download music. From a technical viewpoint, digital files are just digital files, and there is not much difference between movies and sound.

As with sound files, you need a player to view movie files. Both RealPlayer and Windows Media Player provide this facility—so it's likely you already have the right player on your laptop with Intel Centrino mobile technology. If you need to install this software, it is free—and you will be prompted through the installation steps if you need a media player to support a particular movie file (and don't already have the player you need).
