You need to assemble the video first. Use the unrar program.
Having old styled rar files inside of an rar archive is very odd. Don't be surprised if the person who did that erred in archiving the video.
Normally the .r00+ files are parented by a .rar file. And the format requires all members present to complete successfully. But you can extract partial data for as long as you have the .rar + .r00 +.r01, until it experiences a missing or corrupt portion in the sequence. Even if you have .r55+, if you don't have .rar, .r00 and everything before .r55, you're SOL on those later parts.
