Why do people rar videos?
Just a general complaint. Videos are already compressed. Rar'ing it is not going to make it that much smaller. Now I have to use some proprietary decoder. And on top of that, when disk space is tight, you end up needing twice as much -- 50% to hold the rar, the other 50% to hold the decompressed result.
I made that mistake a few times -- I've got, say, 600 meg free, so I download a 500 meg archive. Whoops -- no space to decompress it. And the stupidity of it is that the compressed version isn't even that much smaller. (Don't laugh at my lack of disk space -- I use small partitions to discourage myself from hoarding stuff.)
Dumb dumb dumb.
(And no, I'm not downloading pirate videos, just random weird stuff)
