    Say you have part4.rar of an .mpg file. How do you extract just the bit of video in that particular .rar so you can sample the video? I tried the keep broken files setting, but it does not work. Apparently that's just for bad checksums or something.

    You can't.

    Winrar breaks files down into seperate files, rarXX where XX is the part number of the .rar, usually ranging from 00-completion. Without all the files for that sequence, you can't view the file in it's entirety.

    if its .mpg you can rename the extention to .mpg and open with powerdvd and it should work. This will not work with passworded files i don't think.
