As i say i only want it for sport. No movies or anything. And as i have real player and windows player i do not need Sopcast player do i? MANY THANKS.
ZIP files are a load of files compressed into one file to make them smaller for downloading. When it is downloaded (if you're using Windows XP), right-click on the zip file and choose EXTRACT from the menu. That will de-compress the zip file into all it's contents, you can then choose the setup.exe file to install your application. You could also use something like 7-Zip click here to unzip the files.
