Downloading movies or videos from the Internet can be really time consuming because it’s big and most of the time it is divided into 6 parts or more… Biggest nightmare when downloading movies is when you’ve downloaded all 6 parts and then the last part is corrupted at the end. For normal computer users, you’d be frustrated thinking that it could not be extracted and you have to look for another source and redownload everything again. Actually you don’t need to do that because you can command WinRAR to ignore the error and continue extracting whatever it can by enabling “Keep broken files” option under miscellaneous when extracting. The resulting file should work fine.
Another problem that I always face is when extracting downloaded movie files. My laptop only has 3GB free space and a downloaded DVD movie is usually 4.7GB. I do not have enough space to extract the downloaded movie unless I start deleting other files on my hard drive to free up some space.
I found a very special and clever player software that is able to play dvix/xvid movies from RAR file WITHOUT the need to extract first! With this player, I can even play corrupted or incomplete videos from RAR and also don’t need to waste time in extracting movies after downloading.

All I can say is, BRILLIANT! The version number for Dziobas Player is 0.008.9. It’s like really in Alpha stages(earlier than Beta) but it worked without any problems. I can’t imagine how powerful can this player get when it reaches version 1 final. Give Dziobas Player a try!
