It is a known fact that formatting your hard disk in NTFS is better and system wise more secure. Also with NTFS you can back up large files, with FAT32 you are limited in many ways.
But this said, my system is formatted in FAT32. I have a hugh movie collection (divx, xvid type) and when I got my new computer, I was afraid that with the NTFS format I wouldn't have been able to play my movies, so I stuck to FAT32.

You should have no problems with NTFS when watching movies. I've been using NTFS since the release of Windows XP and have not encountered any compatiblity problems with games, various software, etc. Fortunately...

if you are using WinXP or 2000 it formats your HDD at NTFS so i think most of the users are using NTFS
