Download flicks from library site
At the movies

Jersey City Free Public Library cardholders can now watch more than 400 classic movies, indie films, how-to shows, documentaries and more with the library's new system, MyLibraryDV.

Demonstrated Monday at a library press conference, MyLibraryDV is a free on-demand video service, similar to Comcast's Digital Cable's on-demand, that people with valid Jersey City Library cards can access via the Internet.

Jersey City's Free Public Library is currently the only library in New Jersey offering the service.

The service, created by Recorded Books, can be accessed 24 hours, seven days a week, and viewers can log on via a link on the library's Web site using their library bar code and pin number.

MyLibraryDV can only work through Microsoft Windows 2000 or Windows XP with Flash 9 and Windows Media 9 or higher, and via the most current versions of Web browsers with a broadband Internet connection. Systems need at least one gigabyte of available hard drive space to function properly.

Up to ten shows can be downloaded from the site at once and the videos will expire within seven days, said Victor Enriquez, manager of the library's Management Information Systems Department.

However, there is no limit to how often one can download or view a video.

He and two other MIS staff members, Rafael Artiles and Jonathon Pasco, approached Library Director Priscilla Gardner with the $6,000 project.

"I researched this with regards to other library-related magazines and I noticed this is a service offered at other libraries (within the country)," Enriquez said.

So far, 25 classic movies are featured, such as "Phantom of the Opera" and "Night of the Living Dead." Ninety food programs featuring world-renowned chefs such as "Julia and Jacques Cooking at Home" and 100 travel programs are just some of the 400 programs offered.
