Using BitTorrent on a Mac

I'm new to using BitTorrent and just downloaded last night's episode of '24' to my Mac. Last time I did this I ended up with a very large .avi file, which I knew what to do with, but now I have a folder full of files ending in '' (X= numbers 1-22). What do I do now?

Best answer: That means the .avi file is compressed in RAR format and you need to unrar it. Download, install, unrar, enjoy.

It's probably a multipart .rar file.

Best answer: UnRAR it.

Not to be a prude or anything, but shouldn't this have been posted anonymously?

What is RAR by the way?

Wikipedia article on RAR compression.

By "last night's episode of '24' ", you meant "freely distributable file", right?
