    1-Make & model of computer.

    Are you using win media player to view films? What version?
    What is the problem? Films are fuzzy, Films are jerky?, Films will not download. Films start then for no reason stop.

    A little confused or you are using the wrong terminology.
    Watching movies on the net, well there are three ways to watch a movie on a computer.
    Streaming is one. That is when you access a site that shows movies. They will send it live just like TV. The most popular place for that is YouTube.com
    The next is downloading a movie and playing it once the download is completed. The most common format for that is DivX. You need a special DivX player to watch those. Windows Media Player doesn't. Ipod are also playing around with similar.
    The last is playing a DVD in your DVD drive. That can be played on a number of players including WMP, although there are better.
    Some Video stores are experimenting with streaming movies but fast broadband is needed for that and there is a cost involved.
    So if you could explain what you are trying to do then we can help.
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.
