mpeg, windows media, and quicktime files are for the PC. DivX(.avi), SCVD(.vob), and VCD(.mpg) are for DVD's. BTW the file extentions may look the same... but certain formats are for PC and ones are for DVD's.

As for the software you can try this: http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/fil...3162&fileidx=1

just one more thing, what if you download a movie but it is in two files, half is in each file, how do you put them together, or can you put them together?

The picture quality should be excellent if you used an .avi file... the cause of this bad picture may be the source you downloaded it from.
