I have a lot of video files that come inside .rar archives.

Normally I'd have to unpack them before I can watch the video, but XBMC allows me to play the archives as if they have been unpacked.
I love this feature, but I'm not really keen on XBMC because I like to multitask while watching video, and it's just not meant to be used like that.

Are there any other video players for Windows out there that have this amazing feature?

If there's a Linux player that does this, I'd like to hear about that too.
