The films called on viewers to participate in "Holy War," glorified suicide bombings and showed brutal executions, according to prosecutors.
The man had for around six months operated a website called "Islamic Hacker Union" before he was arrested in June 2011.
The site sought to gain supporters for two groups, the al-Qaeda-linked "Islamic State of Iraq" and the "Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan."
