    Hi Anthony,

    You mean, how to expand this archive? I'm using StuffIt 12 Deluxe, does pretty much formats, including rar.

    Cheers,
    sash

    I use SimplyRAR, and I like it: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/21430

    I am kind of curious as to if there's a program to use with .rar files that will take advantage of the 4 cores in my system though.

    UnrarX is good little utility for rar archives.

    And if you want to watch movies via Front Row? Or use additional filetypes across the OS?

    A multi-part .rar? Sure why not.

    Exactly. Allowing quicktime to playback any media type is a much neater approach.

    VLC does support the Apple Remote.
