    SFV is for CRC32 checksums to verify integrity of whatever you downloaded, it doesn't contain the movie, for movies the sfv really shouldn't concern you at all unless you are expierencing occational corrupted files. If you must open it open it with notepad, you won't find anything important to viewing the movie in there though.

    QuickSFV, if you prefer applications with a GUI.

    ty for the quick reply SNG! nice informative stuff on your sig ^_^v

    - update

    the checksum was all green :D
    but I still couldn't open the movie. I noticed the ending extension was something like this "[Dual Audio] MKV"

    should I dl Lazy Man's MKV?

    didn't know watching a movie would get this complicate :S

    they recommend Media Player Classic, should i try that? because BSplayer pro and Jetaudio won't work either. This is the first time I ever encounter the errors on both players.

    Maybe use VLC media player instead of fussing with codecs and filters?
