    Hey all got an issue here. I downloaded many files with my chromebook. But many of these files are .rar. Some of them are videos and after i download it, i could just view it like that. Others you seem to have to extract it. I downloaded a rar program from play store to do this. But it seemed everytime i wanted to play a video, i have to extract it 3 times etc. Does anyone know how i could fix this issue? Because in windows after you extract a file, it should be available to play just like that. Also some videos i cannot even seem to extract. Also do most of you use the default player to play videos or vlc player?


    Thanks.

    I use the RAR program from the playstore too. I'm not sure why you're having to extract it 3 times.. make sure to extract it and save it in the /downloads folder.

    Also some videos i cannot even seem to extract.


    Maybe they are corrupt?

    Lately I've been using VLC because with large video files it seems the default player has a hard time when you skip far ahead / behind.
