It has the odd name of fr08v101.exe

When run it displays a 15 minute video, nothing unusual in that except that the exe file is only 63.5kb How the heck do they do that? the display has great 3-D moving graphics and full stereo sound. It displays text onscreen and the authour claims it is a new type of compression of 30000:1 I've had this file for some time and all you need is that one tiny exe file to run it.

I suspect its calling some built in stuff hidden in many of the dll files on my system.

it runs under Win95, 98 Me, And XP, not tested it on Vista.


Explanations anyone?

Avast! said that was a virus and promptly killed it. lol. I see they are having problems with false virus reports on it. thanks. Would still like to understand how they get all this stuff into such a small file.
