    How do I view movie files from games that have them stored as a .dat file? I know the main ways they store the videos in games anymore is .bik and .dat. While I know how to access the .bik files, how do I access .dat ones?

    Try Mediaplayer Classic, it helps in many cases.

    The game in particular is Hellgate London. This is the directory where the movie file is. All the movies are in one file.

    EDIT: Oh, and Media Player Classic and WinRAR don't work.

    It's probably encoded in and will only be run by the main program

    Indeed, I was thinking on a simple .DAT video file:

    It was just the extension used by VCDs for the video file.
