    Limewire help.
    Im trying to download a legal movie with no copy rights. Im trying to 'filter' the extensions that my os10.4 will open and use but everything comes up as a zip file that is basically an exe. window application.
    I guess my question is which ext. can i select (when i download legal 'anything' with no copyrights on them) so everything i get is able to open with my mac?
    I have trans & lime6.

    thanks

    I have two suggestions:

    1) when you search in Limewire, include the term mac, or for mac, or something like that.

    2) A better solution is to download a free program called iSquint. It can take almost any video file and convert it into and mp4, which iTunes can play. download it here:

    Correct, that .exe is a self extracting file that runs on Windows.

    This tip, "Unzip a Windows self-extracting .exe zip file" may be helpful.

    I found that by putting the following words into Google;
    "OS X" extract from self extracting exe file
