Welcome to RARPlayer's homepage!
RARPlayer and VLCRAAR are simple java-based executables you can use to play a video file within a RAR without the need for prior decompression.
Copy into same directory as VLC/MPlayer and unRAR.exe (found at RARLAB's website here)
To use simply associate with .rar or drag a rar file onto the executable.
VLCRAAR! 0.3 for VLC Media Player
RARPlayer 0.3 for MPlayer
Starts VLC/MPlayer automatically if a RAR is drag and dropped onto
VLCRAAR/RARPlayer or if a RAR is opened with VLCRAAR/RARPlayer

There is currently a bug where unrar.exe will continue running for a few minutes after
running vlcraar.exe or rarplayer.exe, the fix for this would entail a huge amount of effort of which
i do not currently have the time for.
There is also a bug with seeking in VLC/MPlayer unfortunately this is not currently repairable.
Also VLC Media Player tries to to repair the file, as far as I am aware this is a problem within VLC that I cannot fix.
If you can be bothered fixing or just want to praise please pm me at the Vlc forums (Sparks).
