i'm trying to play a video file but it says: 'there is no default application specified to open the document "vmt-pbboy-xvid.r02"' I was going to download xvid but it's not available for Mac, and i only have Mac computer. i don't know what to do?

r02 is a RAR split archive, you will have to unpack the file, starting with the first archive (vmt-pbboy-xvid.rar).

You can use this program to extract the archive:

UnRarX is a Mac OS X application that allows you to expand rar archives and restore corrupted or missing archives using par2.

Looking at that filename I suspect the file is not a video - it looks to be part of a multi-part rar archive (which in turn contains the video file). You need to find all the other parts of the archive so you can extract its contents using a rar compatible archive tool.
