    This is more than likely a newbie issue but I am unable to play any of the filejoker.rar files
    after I downloaded them, is there a missing step? also, I am trying to watch the VR vids
    on ios is there any apps that play the encoded files or will I need to recode them to MKV or something.
    if anyone responds to this. thanks.

    You need Winrar to unpack the filed. RAR files are like Zip files.

    Thank you Casshern2 for your reply.
    I tried to use a rar extraction program and it said the file is not compressed. yet no player recognizes them as a playable file or format.

    I also tried unpacking them all together.

    That looks like a Mac? Sorry, I don't have one so this may be wrong, but, it could be either the files are corrupt or worse, fake to get you to download. Where did you get the files from, here?

    I decided to try and replicate what you did by first downloading the files from Akiba here:
    https://www.akiba-online.com/thread...you-want-rub-it-spree-2-days-without.1935302/
    I then unpacked the 3 rar files using IZArc, and it extracted fine. (I'm using Windows 10).

    Just a question, are you using the latest version for your extraction program? The only reason I ask is that I spent at least 6 months unsuccessfully trying to unzip using IZArc and 7zip, and when I updated to the latest versions, all the problems went away. I can be such an idiot.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Restarter for the info, I do have the most current program. and yet still when I unzip them all I get this. and nothing is able to play the file.
    the file says it's not even on my Mac. I'll post my steps if need be maybe I am doing something wrong on my end.

    @Restarter, you're a prince for doing that! And, hey, Hitomi is not a bad choice to try and help with; now at least you get to be a little close to her. :D

    I believe the file is "showing up" because your box thinks it is about to be unpacked? But then when it doesn't actually, that file stays there as a 0 byte ghost? Not sure, as I said, I'm on Windows. I Googled and found this:

    https://apps.apple.com/us/app/the-unarchiver/id425424353?mt=12

    If those RAR files are showing up with accurate file sizes then it is still just the extraction that is the problem, really.

    It's always nice when an attempt to help someone also lets me selfishly obtain a video I already wanted.

    Good choice when trying to play a difficult to open video. When Media Player is looking for codecs, I just open the video with VLC. It has even let me watch videos from torrents that stop at 90% complete.

    BTW, really like the avatar!

    Thank you for the avatar comment, I love VLC and always use it to play and test everything I can not get over how amazing these VR Videos are. and the creativity in the JAV industry with VR is so awesome!
    My favorite thing about these videos is the affection they simulate, it really adds far more depth to the experience. Hitomi Tanaka is one of if not my favorite actress.
