    So i have some videos that's been downloading in portions (ie 15/50mbs slices). I clicked on it and nothing happens nor does any video app can be used to open it. I'm assuming that I have to compress it and make it into one file. I did, and when I clicked on it, it started to decompress back to how it was first downloaded! On a PC you would use winzip but I'm confuse as to how to play these files! Help please!

    I look at previous threads and they were of no help. VLC would not play either file.

    When they've all downloaded one of them will be obviously the master file by having a different icon. Click on it and OSX's Archive handler will reassemble just like Winzip would.

    You don't watch zip files. zip is a file compression format so you have to get all the parts of the zip file, decompress, then you'll get your movie file.

    What are the filenames you're getting?

    You'll probably find that once you've unzipped every file you will have to join the parts up, depending on how your pirated source packed it ;)
