The MPAA won’t be happy, but fans of rogue digital music site AllOfMP3 (and its many new iterations since the shutdown of the original) will be pleased over news of a movie site mirroring the cheap, DRM-free model of its musical cousin. ZML has made a quiet debut over the last couple of months, but boasts over a thousand movies thus far, ranging from old classics to recent releases. We took a look at the service and found that, while it doesn’t have everything, it’s certainly good for stocking up on cheap (and not-very-legal) movies.
ZML requires the registration of a free account in order to use the service, but users must also preload their accounts with cash before buying anything. This is likely so that the Russia-based site won’t have to deal with some of the roadblocks that AllOfMP3 did with credit card processing—instead, you’re directed to a separate, secure site where you can purchase different levels of credits that your downloads will be deducted from. ZML only takes Visa or MasterCard—sorry, no charging movies to your corporate AmEx. I tried.
