For me to access the file name vlc media file (.bin) extention, it could only open in audio format with out sound. How do i access the file to a video format with sound effect?

.BIN is not a media format. It's a disk image format. Basically it's a snapshot of a CD/DVD. For some reason VLC will associate itself with that file type.

What I would do is burn it to a CD or DVD using ImgBurn then see what contents are on the disk.

Edit: Don't listen to me!

It's slightly more complicated than that. Have a look at this link.

Unfortunately I cannot view your link at work, but it sparked my interest.

I didn't realize that VLC could play a video that was imaged from a disk. So the association with .bin's makes sense... crafty!
