It is actually quite easy to be able to watch movies in a car on your laptop. Just make sure of the following things and you are all set.
First of all, you will need to make sure that your laptop is up to playing videos. For that, you will need a video card (also known as a graphics card) with at least 64 MB of RAM. This is enough to barely watch a movie with a satisfactory level of performance. However, if you want to watch with better ‘flow’ and resolutions, you will need more memory. Streaming Gratuit
Another bit of hardware that you might need is someplace where you can store your movies. It is all right if you have a large capacity drive on your laptop itself, but it is also a good idea to have a portable drive with you that connects to your laptop through a USB connection. If you are getting your movies downloaded from the Internet, then a USB flash drive is a good idea. Get one with 4 or 8 GB memory, which should be ample.
The same applies to the DVD drive if you are playing DVDs and not movies that are dumped on your drive. Portable DVD drives will be needed if your laptop doesn’t have a drive of its own.
Now, let’s talk about the software. You will need a player to run your movies. There are several to choose from-VLC Player has the best capabilities in playing all formats of videos. You could also choose from among Real Player, Apple Quicktime Player, Windows Media Player (which will be present on your Windows OS laptop), and so on.
Probably you want to download movies from the Internet and watch them on the move. This is also possible. You will need subscription to a website like Blockbuster Video or Netflix. These companies allow you to download movies and watch them as you go.
These things are enough for you to be able to watch movies. But there are some practical things to note. Since your laptop will be working a lot when the movie is running-more if you are connecting USB devices-you will need a battery with a good charge on it. It is highly recommended that you buy an extended battery that has a charge of 4 to 5 hours. You might also want to connect your laptop directly to the car charger to conserve your battery, or even charge your battery through it
