there is no way that VLC could stream RAR files. it needs the entire file to uncompress it.
One big problem here is that VLC and megaupload dont get along.Adminabemore (Admin, icefilms.info) commented
Yeah, I wish this too. I use VLC in Linux to stream from icefilms, but it works very different from divx web player (DWP). VLC only has a very small buffer. It does not download the entire video like DWP does, so if your connection slows down at any time while watching a video then the video freezes. Not ideal. If there was some option to make VLC download/cache the entire video, then it we'd be onto something.
