Now everyone who can't seem to get those "family videos" to play that have corrupted RAR bits can play them :D

Saw this on Download Squad yesterday, and IMO something like this is long overdue!

Dziobas RAR Player is a media player with a couple of nice features, but one that stands out in particular: the ability to play an incomplete RAR file.

With videos that have been compressed as RAR files, you usually have to wait until the entire archive is downloaded before you can uncompress the file for playback. With Dziobas RAR player, you can view any portion of the RAR file you've downloaded without having to wait for the rest.

Actually gave this a whirl - works as advertised. Only thing(s) I didn't like is you can't fast forward or rewind, can only play/pause. When clip reaches the end, you need to start over - if there was control within the clip itself, that would be sweet.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
