If you’re still having a hard time deciding which of the online movie streaming services is right for you, one of the most important factors to consider when it comes to making this decision is the selection they offer.

A few months ago I was playing games on my Nintendo Wii (thanks to the loss of my Xbox 360) and even getting fitter in the process – until I stumbled across the news that not only could I turn my Wii into a media centre, but that I could also install Netflix.

Movie files are generally not optimized for the smartphone. They often take up too much space and may be encoded in a format that the smartphone can’t play back very easily.

Video conversion isn’t as essential as it used to be when playing videos on a modern smartphone.

The next Steven Spielberg is probably doing it right now. If you are as enthusiastic, what’s holding you back? You just have to tap into YouTube and join a digital filmmaking school for the price of a “free admission”.
