.rar files are not videos. They’re archives like .zip files. You can store one or more files in them and shrink it. As for extracting the contents you can use WinRAR or WinAce. I see you only have three parts, so the odds of recovery are low. Generally you need all the parts to reconstruct the whole archive. reply

All you have to do is go to download.com, under search, type .rar converter, it will list 5-9 different decoder/converter, the 1st 3 are easy to use, simply open the program, drag the file and click extract, set the path that you want your files to be extracted into, and complete the job. reply

you should only need to attempt the extraction on *.part1.rar, and make sure all the parts in the same folder, it will find the rest of the files needed for reconstructing the file on its own. WinRAR that is anyway. reply

My windows media player doesn’t work. Is there any other way I can play the rar files? I have winrar, but when I get to the point where I can play the files, it shows that they can only open in windows media player. What can I do to play them in winamp or itunes? reply

.rar files are packed file formats. use any program to unpack and then find the right file to play. for packing and unpacking I use total commander but there are lots of other progs for that as well. (: reply

not a noob

ok lissen,
.rar is not a movie file. download winrar, install, then use it to EXTRACT the movie file in it. then, go to where ever you extracted it to, and play it. if winrar cannot open the .rar file, the .rar file is probably fake. reply

In most cases a rar file is an archive, use WinACE, WinRAR, 7zip (Free), might want to try this first.
In other cases such as mine, the file is actually a video file, this where VLC comes into play. Been downloading full episodes of Dr. Who from flash embedded sites. Specifically with Orbit downloader, work and play perfectly in VLC.
As for converting them I haven’t found anything since it is mainly considered an archive file.
