Flip for MAC not working

Hi all

Not sure if I understand how this is suppose to work exactly but just download and installed flip for mac to play file named "Boondocks, The - S2E13 - The Story of Gangstalicious (Part 2) [aAF].avi" but file still won't play.

Can someone plz highlight what am doing wrong or am I try to make flip do something its not designed for?

Two questions:
  • Did you download your torrents as segmented files?
  • If so, have you joined the segments?

Well am not sure as I was not the one who downloaded the file it was given to me by flash stick.

In all honesty i don't care about playing this particular file i just want to solve the problem if there is one so I wont have any issue in the future. Can you elaborate on the segments files point you made?
