I downloaded a movie but it is a bin file anyone know how i could play this ?
Assuming this was a *legal* download which it probably wasnt, then there are a couple things you can do, use a burning prog like nero to burn the image (cuz thats what a .bin typically is) to a cd (usually creates a VCD or SVCD).....tho its possible it was just lumped together in to one large file in which case you can extract it (i typically use isobuster for isos for example).....tho if i remember correctly there are some media players that will play directly from a .bin file (have fun waiting on that load time heh cuz it basically extracts to a temp file anyway before playing)
was there a .cue file included with the .bin ?
usually theres an .cue file that you use to burn with nero, not sure if you can burn the bin without cue file or not...
but if you want to extract the files in the bin, i personally uses isobuster
if the cue wasn't there, you can use the cue from another file, just open it with notepad and change the target name and put it in the same directory.
