    Hi i'm starting to download HD movies from the HD trackers but most of them don't have the files rar'd This causes them to be much harder to FTP at a descent speed due to there size. My solution was to rar them. I'm using a linux seedbox and want to use the rar command line to split and archive the HD movies. The problem for me is i can never get the arguments right. I've looked around for awhile on google but can't find any examples of what I want to do.

    I want to rar "/home/USER/DLs/HDmovie.m2v" and have it split into 14 mb files.

    Please tell me what to type. Thanks!
    See ya in another life, brother.

    raring a compressed video file will actually raise the file size not decrease it.

    I'm splitting the file into small archives so it downloads a little better than in it's original state.

    why not instead set threads so you don't have to split it into rar files? aka 4 threads downloading 1 file is like downloading 4 rar files at once.
