Happens all the time, our friends tell us about a strange and fascinating film (generally old black-and-white classic) they've watched and they speak so enthusiastically about it that we decide to download and watch it, however finding such piece of multimedia is not always so easy and we end up downloading it in an uncommon format that our regular player denies to play.
