Rather Interesting Video Site called "Icefilms"

Someone directed me to a site this evening in which I was told hosted movies and TV shows and it was so detailed and extensive he cancelled his satellite subscription because everything he ever wanted to watch was there.  I had to check it out, and it does seem quite expansive. 

I'm not sure the legality of the site, I am not a lawyer.   I'm always one to rent or buy movies I like, but some may not care.  It's certainly a good spot to check out an episode you missed of your favorite show that got deleted off the PVR by mistake. 

I thought I'd let my many followers and fans know about this site, so they can make their own decision if they want to use it or not.  You don't need to be too terribly net savvy, but you do need to ensure you do a couple things at the site. The is an IQS file link on the top that you need to download and install. It is a browser extension (kind of like flash). I installed on my Google Chrome and it didn't blow my computer up and Chrome saw it as an extension, no problem. (Have not checked it with IE or Firefox)

The other is you need to install a Divx web player. There is a link on the home page of the site for you to download it. Not to worry, Divx (if you haven't heard of it) is a very reputable company who has created a video compression methodology which allows high quality content to be stored in a smaller file and read or played through your computer or even many DVD players now.  It is not something the site with the videos links has created or marketed. 
I was going to put up a sample video, but decided against it. :) 
Finally, some films may not have sound. This requires another quick install of the AC-3 Filter Audio Codec.  You can find a link to it on the site as well. 

The website you want to go to is (yes you can put the www in front)

Yes it works.



  1. NOT SMART ENOUGH TO INSTALL THIS ONE BUD, crap all caps.... Seems to want another plug in all the time.

  2. Seems to work from me? You need to use the 'old' Divx player, the link is on the homepage on icefilms. Also you need to install that iqs browser extension which is on the top right of the front page I think. I watched the entire Karate Kid lastnight and it was basically fine. a little stutter but otherwise pretty good.

  3. interesting...... don't think I would be promoting as this is probably illegal

  4. Not promoting, not aware of legalities, just letting those who chose to look see. I didn't post an actual link for that reason, nor embed the video which I could have.
