Downloading torrents


I was going to download a movie on bittorrent and I noticed that the movie that I wanted was on 17 seperate 50MB .rar files. Is there anything that I would need to do after downloading to view these files as a movie?

Thanks,
Todd

No.
Bit-torrent just notices the bits available and the bits missing.
Once you get it, it will be in one file :-)

Oh yes, you will have to decompress it. But I figure you know how to deal with .rar files

Actually, I have never dealt with a .rar file. But I'm sure that I can figure it out. So I download all of the files and when downloaded it will be just one file that I then need to decompress?

Thanks,
Todd
