How can I convert and burn RAR files to DVD disc which can be read by normal DVD players? So I downloaded a movie which is as RAR file. I can’t play it on my computer. When I click the folder, there are like 4 parts. How can I play this movie and how do I convert them in order to burn these RAR files to a DVD disc to play on my home DVD players?
RAR files are files compressed by a program called WinRAR. To play RAR movies on your computer, you will need to extract the file using WinRAR and then you should get a real video file which can be played by media player (VLC is recommended).
Home DVD players are not able to read and play raw .rar files. To burn RAR to DVD playable disc, you will need a DVD burning software to finalize the DVD so it can be actually recognized by normal DVD players. Also, you cannot burn RAR to DVD directly, what you wanna do is to burn the video extracted from the RAR file to DVD disc. Check out the following step by step guide on how to burn RAR files to DVD disc to play on DVD player.
Extract RAR file using WinRAR and you will see a playable video file (with extension like .mp4, ,avi etc. which can be played by VLC or WMP.) Then you will need to download a DVD authoring software to do the burning job.
Download, install and launch the DVD burning tool, and add the extracted video file to the program. You can import multiple files at a time according to the size and length of the videos. Then drag and drop loaded movies to the storyboard below to proceed to the next step.
If there is necessary, this DVD burning program lets you edit the videos by cropping, trimming, etc. Or you may simply pass this step.
Finished all settings, insert a blank DVD disc (DVD-R is recommended) into your DVD burner drive and hit on Start button to burn video files to DVD disc.
Once the burning process is completed, you may eject the DVD and play on your home DVD player. This DVD Creator also lets you burn all kinds of other videos to DVD format.
