    The BPST bit or the .mpg bit?

    Think about -
    File source.
    What format were you told the file was in.
    What format did any associated readme / nfo have to say.
    (if that's no help)

    Try (as usual)

    If that's too much to read,

    BN encoding: has BPST in the encoded headers. Is being phased out in
    favor of yEnc.

    Less tham 1 minute to Google and search for BPST in the pages found.

    What does the Subject header have in it? Does it look like one of those
    yEnc encoding files where the unstructured Subject header gets usurped
    by that encoding scheme as though it were a structured field? Could be
    you got a crappy download and will have to redownload the post to get
    the file again. Could the be author screwed up the encoding. Could be
    that the yEnc encoded attachment got corrupted because yEnc is NOT
    designed for reliable transport.

    I would think anything that will open mpeg would also open mpg.
    Programs to play PowerDVD.

    Perhaps, butt getting past this bit first helps,
    BN encoding: has BPST in the encoded headers. Is being phased out in
    favor of yEnc.
