I am currently using LimeWire, a P2P program to download movies. I am starting to have the problem of not being able to get movies. Does any one else download movies and where from? Thanks!

What's the problem exactly with Limewire? I've been using it for about 2 years now and haven't had any issues downloading music or movies. Sometimes the quality isn't fantastic but that's not really a download problem - that's the originators record quality. Have you contacted Limewire about it?

When you try to download do you start at the top of the search results? The items at the top have the most locations and are much quicker to download...there will generally be a number next to the title telling you how many locations they are in. Once you start to get towards the bottom of the list then you are more likely to get that sources message (it's pretty much saying that the file you are looking for isn't in enough locations for limewire to gather enough information for you to download - if that makes sense)...

Yeah, I always start at the top. That's the problem. It will say over 100 sources, but then give me that message. And it seems like it is happening on all the movies I try.

Sarah, you may also have to disable your firewall if it is turned on, I find this helps with getting better results.

yes its true downloading illegal content or copyrighted is illegal! But i can give you limewire pro, its perfectly legal! Limewire pro is legally shared http://sales.limewire.com/061110/vbzHpTDk7XiRX8AEvltfeS9EPsIUlU0h Please don't illegal files or try not to. I only have this is to get rare battlefield 2 photos and share. but THIS IS LEGAL TO DOWNLOAD LIMEWIRE PRO SINCE ITS FROM THE SITE. some dude shared his account. Just don't download illegal content or try. please.

Thanks for all the info!! I had heard of torrents before, but I wasn't really sure of what they were and how to use them. Now I have a pretty good idea. I've been using p2p and I always have the problem of not finding the movies that I want. I'm hoping this works out better for me. Thank again!

bittorents are usually safer and better quality. You need a bittorent program (ex: bitlord) and you can find torrents all over the net.

Sarah are you using limewire free or pro, with pro you can get 3 times more movies, games, etc... I downloaded pro version for free using limewire itself to get it. Just do a search in programs on limewire for limewire pro and there you will find the full free pro verion that gives you excellant downoad speeds and a lot more results to download.

Oooohhh. That makes sense. haha. I wonder how many people pay for the upgrade rather than just download it? lol.

I actually cam e across this by mistake, I was tempted to upgrade through the pay method, then one night I noticed that just about every program you search brings up a Limewire link, then I got to thinking, that when you download Lime wire for the first time it searches your computer for files to share, so this being the case someone out there must have Limewire pro still in there share folder, and sure enough there are thousands of members that share limewire pro as a full download and it is free. I was really blown away that Lime wire has not caught on to the fact that they are litterally giving away it's pro addition.

Yeah, that is why I thought it was wierd. Oh well, I am downloading it now, so I'll see if that works. lol. I'm glad I never paid for the upgrade.

I have tried Bit Torrents, with these I found they are way to slow, and that a lot of the time you cannot even download files unless your share rate is high, if you do not have a lot of files to share the downloads are next to impossible.

I've been using Morpheus for a couple years but since the last updates it has the same problems. Maybe a case of the P2P networks going the way of youtube and some of the others that were sharing.
@SarahEC (545)

24 Jan 07
Yeah, that could be a reason why. I had Morpheus, too, and then I downloaded LimeWire because Morpheus started acting like this. The same with Ares. I don't know why?

I've tried Ares before and it didn't work for me that well. Limewire works fine for music, it's just movies that I am having a hard time downloading.

Limewire has a reputation to install malware in your system to track your interests. However this is not authenticated. However, try out these sites - phazeddl.com and ddlspot.com. You will definitely get something of your interest at these sites.

You should try downloading movies form newsgroups. There's alot of stuff on them and you don't have to do the file sharing thing. I have downloaded some movies from them, but I mostly download software.

I am trying torrents, but I can't seem to get it to download. I guess I'll have to mess around with it some more, but I go to the download site and I see the file name in the torrent program, but the download never starts. Oh well, I'll just have to get it figured out. Thanks!

I have not downloaded any movies from anywhere, but I have used limewire for all my other downloads. I wonder why there is a problem. Maybe you should upgrade, which by the way you can do that free through a lime wire search.

I don't download movies mainly because it would take forever with my connection.
