i've downloaded a few movies files, the icons are blank, and when i go to "get info" it reads "document". i've tried renaming the file, avi, mov, wmv,... but i still cannot open it. the file was downloaded complete, i'm perplexed. can anyone help?

thanks in advance.

Right now it sounds like you may have crossed over into discussing the use of illegally downloaded movies, so offering help may be difficult while following the rules of the mac-forum.

But, if they aren't illegal downloads, can you describe more of the file extension that they *were* when you downloaded the files originally?

they're actually clips. the download does not have a file extension name before the .html. i was successful into turning two of them into .flv files, but a third was not cooperating. can't figure out why.

i don't believe they're illegal.

I don't understand - is the current extension .html then? What size is it? (is it the size that a video should be?) And how did you know what file extension to convert the other ones to, did you just guess?
