Mediafire is a file-sharing website that allows users to upload their files to the site and then send links to their friends in order for them to download the files themselves. In order to save extra space when uploading, a game or movie file may be compressed into "ZIP" format. Playing ZIP files downloaded in Mediafire won't be possible until you first "Unzip" the ZIP format. This is something you can do with the native "Extraction Wizard" in Windows.
