When you (for some unknown reason) have a movie packed within several RAR-files, you can't at the moment not watch it in MP without unpacking it first.
To avoid this you can use this work around:

First you need MPlayer
Here are the files incl. source:
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html

Second you have to make a bat-file with this content (note the last dash):
Code:
"C:\program files\winrar\unrar.exe" p -inul %1 | "C:\program files\mplayer\mplayer.exe" -fs -
Then in My Programs setup you make a dir browser starting the bat file, the file type beeing .rar

This way you do it once, then you can sit in your couch starting a movie with just the remote control.
It's what I call it, a workaround. Maybe some day someone has the time, interest and knowledge to implement it in MP. Maybe you?
