Hi check first what codecs vlc deal with ,i didnt think it dealt directly with rar files .best bet is to unrar it first with a proper unrar program then you can sort the correct codec for video file.ie mpeg2or avi etc.get a rar program from cnet.

How to Play RAR Files?


To play an RAR-compressed video, just start up VLC, go to Open > File, and select the RAR file. It should open and play as if it were just a video. This also works with videos spread over multiple RAR files, but you'll need the first and last part of thefile completely downloaded.

How do I open various downloaded files


There are a wide variety of files you can download but you can solve this problem several ways.

1. If this was a audio or video of some type then vlc player can play almost all formats
2. If this was a picture, Picasa can open most image formats
3. If this was a compressed file such as zip, rar, tar you can uncompress it with winrar

I cant play RAR Files on a download either with Media player or VLC Player ? Also VLC Player stalls and wont start playing anything at the moment and have tried updates but that seems OK Should I reinstall...


Any file that is a RAR file isnt a media file. Rar files are basically winzip files. You can use WINZIP 7 or WinRar to to open and extract Rar files. Go to www.Download.com tand search for WInRAR.Once you find it, download and isntall WinRAR> Use WinRAR to open and extract the RAR file you need.

I seriously think that it may be a virus. I recommend you to scan through a updated antivirus. Also check if the format is supported by Windows media player.

Thanks

About .rar file


mikeyaro,
  • The .RAR file is not a multimedia file. Its a RAR archieved of compressed files and/or folders of WinRar format. To open these compressed files/folders you need the WinRar software, any other software which can expand these files.
  • For a trial of WinRar click here
  • Make download and try to open your .rar file.

Thanks
