I have access to some files which download as .rar. VLC doesn't open them. Any clues please?
the files seem to be html files. I have downloaded the stffit expander.
I use RAR Expander for decompressing RAR files.
thanks will try that, that other one didn't seem right
I have downloaded that one. It tells me to use expand in the file menu to expand a file, but when i go to my downloads, they appear faint and will not open. Also they appear as html files. Is this correct please
RAR is a file compression format, like ZIP.
There are lots of free utilities to uncompress RAR files for Mac. I use "The Unarchiver", available in the Mac App Store.
tanks but can you understand my problem as post above. This is the box i get when clicking on a video. I go to the 3rd one down and click it and the download start but ends up as an html
If you don't have an unarchiving utility for RAR files, then your computer may not recognize the file type. You should accept the advice to download and install Stuffit Expander or The Unarchiver.
Thanks. I have just managed, by a roundabout way using the stuffit expander to open one.
I personally have The Unarchiver - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/the-unarchiver/id425424353?mt=12
Not sure if you've already picked one, just want to give it more publicity.
Thanks I have managed to get things sorted with an expnder
