Small archives can be shared and transferred faster, which is why using the RAR file format to compress movies is quite common. Usually, to play RAR video files you must initially decompress the archives, unless you are using VLC RAR-Loader.

VLC RAR-Loader is a very small application that offers you the possibility to quickly open RAR video files without taking the time to unarchive the data. The installation process is very simple: drag and drop the app to the Applications folder. At the same time, you must make sure that the VLC Media Player is installed on your Mac (you can download it HERE).

To use VLC RAR-Loader simply launch the application, drag and drop the RAR archive on top of the main window (if the action is successful you will view the archive name) and then press the “Play” button. VLC RAR-Loader will launch/relaunch your VLC Media Player and then  open the RAR video. The app offers you the possibility to launch the movie in full screen mode.

To open another archive using VLC RAR-Loader, you can press the “Clear” button and then drag and drop a new RAR movie. The app also includes a couple of hotkey combinations: Command +P to play the video and Command+O to load a file or a folder.

In the VLC RAR-Loader Preferences window you can view if the app has detected the VLC Media Player location and you can choose to play the movie instantly, in which case you may also enable the “Droplet auto quit” function.

VLC RAR-Loader is a very easy to use application that offers you the possibility to play RAR movie files without taking the time to decompress the archive. The application is great if you need to deal with large RAR movies.
