Unfortunately it seems this app isn't working any longer, at least not with VLC 2.0.5 under OS X 10.6.8.

Works great, but I do have one small feature request: support for password-protected RARs. That would make the app perfect.

Actually it works great, but not the latest version. Try downloading 1.2 at this link:

VLC 0.8.6f responds with 'main: cannot pre fill buffer'. RAR-Loader 1.2 worked fine for me.

No "Play" button appears either before or after dropping file in. Unusable here but I won't neg rate it in case I am doing something wrong - though I don't know what, I read the entire PDF.

Your "play" button doesn't show if you have selected "play instatly on drop" in the preference drawer.
If you see the playbutton but it itn't clickable it's most likely because VLC-rar Loader was unable to find Video Lan Client on your hard drive. Please make sure you have the latest version of Video Lan Client installed.

Thanks! This plays an XviD that VLC (standalone) and everything else wouldn't. This compact application is just what I'd been looking for for about a month.
