    You're pretty dumb but not one of the worst by far.

    Rar is a compression/archive format like zip... Meaning the file you've downloaded isn't a video it has the video inside. And that's why it can't play.

    It doesn't really. But calling yourself dumb makes me fell like calling you dumb.

    I think it's the part that you asked this without searching. This topic has been brought up before, and talked about numerous times.

    Anyway, anything after that . (dot) in the file name is an extension. That denotes the file type, and you can always look that up in google, and a site will tell you how to use it.

    Yeah you guys are right. That really was a rookie mistake. Sorry... I figured if I did it on google, I'd get a lot of words with rar in it. Then I'd have to be really specific... Btw, I wasn't really calling myself dumb, I was making fun of someone who posted that.

    Just download WinRar from someplace like www.download.com or something

    Or, if you have another way of downloading, by all means use that.

    Yeah next time google or search. You really don't want to receive warning points.
