Just downloaded a movie, and it want you to download some codecs.
DONT download the codecs..
You want to be sure the movie is real before you finish your download.
You can use this Tutorial from 2% (sometimes before and sometimes later)

First you need MediaInfo can be Download Here

How to recognize without downloading whole file:

Using uTorrent: under advanced , set bt.prio_first_last_piece to *true

Select only the main movie to download.

Start download and wait for piece 0 to download complete.

( Note if there is a "sample" or other sizable file in the folder you may
need to calculate which is the first piece, it may not be 0, but usually is)

Stop the download.

Open the download folder and find the file.

It will prolly be an .avi file.

Open it with mediainfo. Mediainfo will most likely tell you something like this:

Complete name : FILENAME.avi
File size : 1 015 MiB
Application : Windows Movie Maker 2.1.4028.0

Already you see the scam, there is no valid reason to rename a WMV file and call it .avi

Now play the movie with VLC or Media Player Classic and you will see something like this:


With this variant playing it with Windows Media Player as directed will go to a dead end or to a website
inviting you to pay for a playvix or similar codec. It won't work !

Here is another variant sending you to a fake site:


If it is a DRM (digital rights movie) you will see something like this when playing with Windows Media Player:


you need to start the download and when you get around 2-3% open the containing folder and right click and hit media info if you have it installed and you'll get this see the red highlighted info of the first one compare it to the second one and to see the redirect play it and you'll see the redirect and codec error.
