Questions About Circuit City's Exclusive NARNIA Downloads

For those who purchased THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA at Circuit City, an exclusive bonus of downloadable featurettes is provided. What I'd like to know is:

a) Can your unique download code be used to download these featurettes multiple times on multiple computers, or is it single-use only?

b) Can the featurettes, once downloaded, be burned to a DVD-R?

It is single use only!
(The download page told me to download Java Runtime Environment, and by the time it was through, it logged me out automatically, and will not let me use the same code!)

Yikes! Okay, that's one question down (thanks, pdrny, and my sympathies)--anyone else who has successfully made the download who knows if it can be burned to DVD-R?

You probably could, but you would have to convert it to the proper format, and the quality of it is probably not good enough that it would look "good" on anything bigger than a 20 inch screen...

I have no illusions about it looking great; I'm interested in being able to a) preserve it beyond the PC I own currently and b) port it from computer to computer (or DVD player to DVD player). Anyone know for sure on this?

BTW, I was in CC yesterday and they had a stack of download codes sitting by the register when you check out. I grabbed one thinking it was just an advertisement. Got home and it actually has the code in there. I connected to the site and was able to download it with the code, no DVD needed.

But can you burn it to DVD-R?

You have the option of saving it as .mov or a Win Media file type (not sure if it's .wmv or .mpg) I went with Quicktime .mov. It was about 75 Mb.

So, yes you can burn that to a DVD-R.

Will your DVD player play a .mov file type? Doubtful.

Ditto.

This is the first Ive heard of this--Any info on what kind of content is downloadable?

Is it the infamous deleted dancing scene?

I haven't gone through the whole download yet. It's about a dude going through some weapon props in their workshop.

Yup, that's pretty much it. I went through the whole thing, and it was the same guy going over the weapon props.

It is in a rather low resolution like 320x200. So transcoding and burning it to a DVD-R doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Again, I'm not interested in the fact that it's low resolution; I'm interested in preserving and porting it.
