    Is it possible to convert a .bin video which seems to be a apple mac format
    to a .mpg or .avi format ? ( the files are on the monthy python complete
    waste of time cd ( about 7 years old ) and seem to be in a .bin format
    which i have been told is a old mac format )

    thanks in advance

    A Mac ".bin" file is, simply stated, a binary file with the separate
    Macintosh Resource and Data forks combined into a single file. It could
    be an executable, a document, audio, video or just about anything. It
    would need to be decoded using Stuffit Expander aka Aladdin Expander to
    see what kind of file it actually is. If it's video it's likely
    Quicktime, probably QT2 or 3 if it's that old, and Quicktime player
    should be able to show it.
