If you install, "Video Download Helper" in Firefox, you can specify what format you'd like the download to be in. (At least from many sites).This one: http://www.downloadhelper.net/index.php Seems to pass the sniff test for adware/malware. There are these types of add-ons that don't. I'd get it directly through Mozilla's site. Then just play it with WMC (in W7), or the latest version of VLC. To the best of my knowledge, VLC has a full codec pack loaded, you don't need to add any. In fact, they're working on Blu-Ray playback in the 2.xx versions. We had a long thread about this "viooz" BS not working before, was that you? How did you come up with a "26 inch" monitor. Is this CRT? ATM, Newegg only shows 3 or 4 LCD 26". Kind of a rare size.
