For Mac Users (Unzipping Videos) - Update !! Please Read

A good friend tells me the Ez7z worked perfectly and easily with split & zipped video files on his Mac where as the 2nd link gave the similar problems
So if you use a Mac - Please use this:

There are 2 options here for Mac users to unzip & rejoin the video files on this site. Both of which I believe work.

Here is a link to 7-zip for Mac:

I hope with these we will solve any issues that Mac users have had. In general I do apologise to those who experience problems with un-zipping these zipped & split files. As yet its unclear as to why for some many problems occur where as for others it works perfectly and as such, if I can't clearly identify the problem there's nothing I can do to fix it! Sometimes during the download process files can corrupt and these videos are big files.
Its quite possible that in the future I will be re-encoding many of the Sigur ros / jonsi videos using the new MKV video format which literally makes files half the size of AVI's... but thats for the future :)

Suggestions for better methods are always welcomed

Sigur Rós - Pukklepop Festival, 16.08.2008 - VIDEO

Lineage: Web Stream>WM 12 Capture / Danisoft Media Converter = Mpeg4 320/240 - 30fps - 48kHz Vbr

NEW! A really lovely new video from 2008. The camera work is particularly well done and the colours are just beautiful. Huge thanks to Didier for kindly sharing this with us. There are a few small glitches with the video but nothing major.
NB: You need to use 7-zip to unzip and rejoin the files. With windows, once installed > right click file 001 > 'open with' > 'search for program'.> select 7-zip > tick 'always use this program' box. Your computer now recognises the files. Now right click file 001 again & select 'extract' They will unzip & rejoin automatically. There is also a Mac version at the bottom of the download page:

Apologies to those who have had difficulties. I hope the above makes the process clear. If you still have problems please email me direct & I will work to ensure that one way or another you can get this concert.
