    Could you clarify what file type it is? How was it split into "parts"?

    What typically happens is that the file gets munged / truncated to split it,
    and those subparts are not valid according to the strict Microsoft parsers.
    Without a pointer to the file, I'd simply point out that what you're
    describing historically indicates that the files are corrupt. Rejoining
    them first and *then* playing them back should get them to work properly.

    I believe the 'bad file: truncation' error code in the player is 0x8004022f,
    but that's just off the top of my head (that'd be the second attribute in
    the Web Help URL).

    When i play the first part, the player only shows part of the playable
    length of the entire movie on the playing bar. Then when i try to play
    the second part the error occurs. I'm playing using KMplayer.

    And how can i combine those video files?

    Yes, this definitely indicates that the file was badly truncated.

    You can either ask the content provider to provide you an unbroken version
    of the file or you can use a file editor for that file type to attempt to
    reattach them.

    At a base level, you have been provided corrupt files. For the most basic
    solution, you would want to get *working* versions of those files from the
    content provider. If you can't do that *and* can't edit them back to normal
    this content may be dea dto you. =\
