Problem with your theory is the vast majority of cams save as
This is one genie they can give it the fuck up with, he's not only out of the bottle he's down the street sleeping with the CxO's wife! Seriously if you have clueless friends or family? Give 'em the combo of an Nbox with a USB drive (just make sure it is an external powered one as the USB port doesn't have enough juice to drive a 2.5) and Tipard DVD Ripper. It literally is as simple as "push button to get movie" which they just drag onto the drive and voila! Instant movie. One of the reasons i got a 6 core for Xmas was my dad who said "Is there anything that will make it so you can rip movies quicker?" because he constantly buys DVDs and has become too spoiled on his Nbox. When he found out a 6 core would let me rip a movie in 20 minutes flat he got me that and a massive cooler and handed it to me along with another pile of DVDs he bought from Amazon and said "There you go son, do you need my drive or can you just bring them on your stick?" LOL!
You should really try one though, they are great for bedroom TVs, kids, hell even the main set if you are like my dad and don't care about steaming. Being able to just plop down in front of the set, push a single button, and have every movie you've ever bought all preloaded and commercial free is just too damned nice and is why I have given up on even keeping an Nbox for a display model because as soon as it comes in somebody comes in and says "Can you get me one of those TV movie things like (insert one of the many people I've sold them to) has got? You know the thing where you can load all your DVDs on it and just push the button to play them?" and there it goes again. The MPAA really needs to pull their head out of their asses and give the people what they want as my dad would probably buy 3 times the amount of movies he does now if he could just go to Amazon and buy a DivX 5 like he does MP3s.
