Watch .bin movie file with Windows VLC player

If you got .bin as movie file (many downloaded movie file has .bin extension) don’t waste your time with Windows media player. Get VLC player for Windows XP / Vista. It can directly play .bin file.

VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats including DVDs and VCDs. For movies I always use VLC. It is one of the best free program.

    use daemontools or power iso to “mount” the vcd files on a “virtual drive” drive…it will play then…

    by default it will use windows media player or some dvd player like power dvd(whatever it finds)..

    to play with vlc, just browse the virtual drive to the folder called mpegav and play the file in there with vlc player

    you can also copy this file out of the virtual drive and rename it and just play it next time…without having to mount the bin and all that.

    You can use PowerISO tool. Once the file is opened using it, you can then extract all the files in it.
    Personally, i dont see this as media extension file (*.bin) .. it looks like archived file.

    Hope this works
