I downloaded unRarX and whenever I try to open a .Rar file (video), it does this and does not play the video:

1 Answer 1

UnrarX is just a soft to decompress the video, you still need to play it with Quicktime or another video player and you still need to have the right plugin for your video player.

EDIT : The file you're unraring is NOT a video, it's a PDF. Open it with Preview, that's all.
