    I downloaded some videos that have an extension of wmv.001 and wmv.002. I can't seem to open them. I have the free version of flip4mac and it usually opens wmv files without a problem. But I can't seem to open that have an number at the end of the extension.Any help?

    Thanks you for any help, I really appreciate it.

    It sounds like a split archive from a torrent.

    You need to combine those files into a single wmv file.

    open terminal and go to those folder with the 001 files. type cat *.wmv.* >> final.wmv

    Download MacHacha instead. It's a free tool that'll do it.

    Thank you. Terminal made my life a whole lot easier. I tried so many split/join programs, but they have problems with wmv files. Terminal was a snap and it did the joining in few seconds.

    I really appreciate it.
