MP4 movie downloads

For those of you that watch movies in your Escape:

Does anyone download MP4 movie files and if so, which is a good site?

Thanks,

I've not done it but, Netflix?

I've been dragging around a 7" Toshiba DVD player. Can watch DVD on it or connect via cord to my TV. It lives under the bed with a selection of DVDs that I've been dragging around for three years, but never watched.

Thanks! This seems to download to the movie to a phone app, which is great.
I was thinking more of downloading the movie to a large portable SSD drive, so I could plug it into my TV USB port.

Guess you'll have to buy yourself an iPad Fred.
Or, can you connect with Bluetooth?

Huge difference between someone who camps and someone who full-times. Just as there is between people who camp as a couple and someone who solos. Different strokes for different folks.

That is true. And, my post recounts my experience.

I do have a DVD player, but have found that plugging in a device into the USB port of our tv is so much simpler. Someone gifted me a thumb drive with some movies on it and I thought that would be a great way to store movies without carrying all the DVDs around.

Ab-So-Loot-Leeee!!! Not to say we are TV addicts, but when we get the itch to watch a flick, I sure would like to have choices without carrying a stack of DVDs or trying to run down a Redbox.

We also download Netflix shows and movies on our large iPads before we leave home.
If you don’t have a iPad you can also do the same on your laptop. Many laptops now have an HDMI output so you can also watch it on a large screen.
Downloading a movie is surprisingly fasting if you have to borrow internet at a library etc.

Also, if you are camping in the "winter" in southern states, although its often warm during the day time, it still gets dark pretty early and cools off quickly and if you are away for five or six weeks at a time, its nice to have some choice in entertainment.
