B-Movies is an app to browse the Internet Archive's Moving Images library of free movies, films, and videos.
To browse the library, tap on one of the several available types of collections. Doing so will display all the sub-collections within that collection. Movies in sub-collections can be displayed according to their rating or by the date they were added to the collection.
Tap on any movie to display the details about that movie. Details include the full description of the movie, its rating if it has one, the number of downloads, and its running time if available. Since most movies are uploaded by users, some movies may not have complete details.
Also listed are the actual movie files. Tap on one to play it. If the video format is visible below the movie title, tap on it to switch to an alternate video format if one is available. Usually the smaller the file, the inferior the quality. Larger files will usually look better, but may require a longer time to load. Since network connections to the internet may vary, some videos may be available in a variety of formats.
A list of related keywords may also be shown. Tapping on one of these is a shortcut to doing a search for that keyword.
If you find a particularly interesting movie, you can bookmark it for later viewing by using the bookmark control in the top-right corner of the Details screen. Switch to the Bookmarks tab to view your bookmarks. Swipe from left to right across any bookmark to delete it.
To play movies in the archive with B-Movies, you must connect to the internet via a Wi-Fi network.
The Internet Archive in no way endorses this product, nor are they associated with Bubble Pop Software in any manner.
