    That's quite a blanket statement.

    I download plenty of shows and movies that aren't in a .rar file.

    This whole thread is crap.

    Yes, rar files are used because of the possibility of corruption. So if you have say 50 rar files and one is corrupt then the uploader will usually up that repaired rar file separately and you simply download that one to replace the corrupted one. At one time there seemed to be quite a lot of avi files that were corrupt so the whole download was then wasted.

    Its a lot more work for the uploader but is meant to benefit those downloading the file.

    Personally I haven't come across any corrupt files for at least 6 months so it's probably more trouble than it's worth.

    Anyone here who is an uploader have any comments on this?
