I usually use Xbox Media Center to play my movies. It can take a scene released movie that is in .tar (inside it a collection of .rars and inside those the xvid movie) or a movie that is split into many rar files and play it back.
It is able to parse though the rar files without unraring them on the hard drive (it's actually doing this by connection to a server on the host computer and streaming the data)
My question is do any media players support opening rar archives or tar archives without having to unrar them?
I tried VLC and Media Player Classic (installed with CCCP) but they don't natively do it.
Anyone else able to (without having the unrar the entire set of rars to get to the video file)?
