    1. Yes, playing movies (using any technology) uses disk space. The space should be reclaimed once the movie has been deleted or the machine restarted. If you're talking about a movie you rented from iTunes, it will automatically delete itself soon enough.

    2. Do you really need to be downloading more stuff when you've already nearly filled up the hard drive?

    The video file you are playing will, obviously, take disk space but Perian itself shouldn't be taking space to play a video file. If you delete the video file, you should reclaim whatever space it was taking.

    this is generally down to how many seeders the file has, how many leechers the file has and the speed of your connection.
    If you find a post helpful, don't forget to use the reputation system (top right of post.)
