They're in the Mpq

But they're in a special file type, ".FWK", You'll have to insert the Starcraft CD in a DVD-Writer in a Mac computer with linux installed, then, download a program that is called FawkViewer, and another program called MpqExtractor, both are of course not free, so you will have to download a crack also, but the crack has to be version 2.93 or it won't work (this is illegal, but so it to see any game's cinematics outside of the game anyway) when you install Fawkviewer and MpqExtractor from the console, run Mpqextractor and open the file StarcraftDataDll.mpq, extract any files with the .FWK extension, then open them with Fawkviewer, but don't open those that start with the number '32' or your computer will crash. You can use "windows media winamp" to convert the videos to mp3 so you can watch them in a Microsoft 286, don't do it while online or you could get attacked by a hacker, hackers like to steal your ram when you are asleep, so unplug your computer.

I hope this helps.

EDIT: Oh sorry, I forgot to tell you those are windows programs, so you'll need a windows emulator, like "Whine" to run them on that linux powered mac personal computer.

The heck, just download the BINK tools and an MPQ extractor, open the big file on the starcraft CD and look for the largest files, extract those and rename them to .bik and enjoy

Oh, I'm sorry, that looks like a complete block of *censoring this manually before the board makes me look stupid by changing it to something even more stupid*.

This is stupid too. The BINK tools play Smacker (*.SMK), no need to rename.

I know how do extract the videos with now illegal downloads:

1) Open the game
2) Open the first mission
3)Type in 'there is no cow level'
4) continue steps 2 and 3 until you reach the first cinematic
5) video tape the cinematic with a dvd video taper.
6) place in cd tray and play

The last part is stupid (#5), you can just use a program that records the computer screen and sound currently playing.

I obviously didn't mean my suggestion to be literal. Do you actually think anyone would video tape the cinematics?

I had to do that because EVERYTHING inside the install.exe came up as unknowns (Was missing some file for the MPQ extractor i used), so the only signatures I could look by when looking for the movies was their filesize.

That they're really in SMK format was irrelevant to me, since both formats plays perfectly fine regardless of the file extension given.

That's why I said that, obviously there's no need to rename if one doesn't have that problem, but it was probably poor of me to not mention that in the first place, yeah.

I have nearly complete listfiles for all Blizzard games. The WoW listfile alone is 6+ MB!
