I have some from a local binaries usenet and to post they split them
up some are 6 sections and have an .eml added,the majority use M$ to OP.
 I'm using fc2 and mplayer but know nothing of video.

Thanks david

I used to use a simple script called uustrip. That was 10-15 years ago. I haven't found any updated version of it in a while. It is basically a wrapper for uudecode to strip out the header info from the various postings leaving only the uuencoded part which it then sent to uudecode. No support for newer encoding methods (xxencode or rar or such).

I also used to use AUB (Assemble Usenet Binaries) which would read files directly from various NewsGroups via nntp and decode the contents of all of the fragmented files which were comepletly available.... It was written entirely in Perl, and did the decoding itself. It did its best to find all of the partial files by sorting through the Subject lines and grouping based the part numbers. Again, my copy is old enough to not support other than uuencoded binaries.

I've often wished that some of the (current) Newsreaders had better support for grouping/saving/decoding split postings. XRn used to do it real well 15 years ago.... Mozilla/Thunderbird won't even let you save multiple postings to a single file!
