Bin files are cd image files, most of the time there should be a .cue file as well. As for previewing a bin file that isent finished I have not seen any program that does it as of yet :(

I don't think there is anyway to preview an unfinished .bin
The only way I know of to view a .bin file is to extract the mpeg with daemon tools.(I think thats the program name)

I'd actually like to know the answer to this as well. :D

The only way you could do it, is try to mount the bin (dont think this will work if its not finished though) and click and drag the mpg file from the mpeg2 folder onto your hdd and try it that way.

Not sure why you would want to preview it anyway, if its off bittorrent and its a bin file (esp with centropy in the title) then its going to be real and good quality as well. Its not like kazaa where ou have a 50/50 chance of picking a crap copy/fake movie to download.

Bin files are great just use vcdgear to extract the mpeg or mpeg>to c./bin and burn the cue to get your disc...its alot quicker than tar or rar.

but remember too, accat13, that bin files are supposedly highly compressable.. so tar and rar files are quite useful in that regard to keep the megs down to a minimum.
