Ever wished your favorite video player could play your downloads without you having to unpack those pesky RAR archives first? Enter RARFileSource, a DirectShow filter that let's most video players read RAR files on the fly. The only restriction is that the video must be stored without compression, this is fortunately the norm since WinRAR doesn't do a very good job on video anyway. Start your video player, load a RAR file and enjoy! If your player already has a feature to automatically unpack RAR archives before playback remember to disable it first. No more waiting! If the archive contains multiple media files you'll get a simple file selector. All files of a multi-part archive must reside in the same directory, you can load any file in the set and the filter will automatically find and scan all parts for media files.
A note about ASF, WMV and WMA files. RARFileSource will correctly detect them but Microsoft's DirectShow filter is not compatible becasue it's a combined source and splitter. Download the WMV/WMA Parser filter.
