Check the filesize of the file you downloaded, if its larger then 10-100KB, it probably IS a compressed archive OR a video file.
To check if its a compressed archive, open the file with Winrar (winrar will check the files headers rather then the file extension and that way
detect if its an archive and open it if it is)
To check if its a video file, open the PHP file in VLC Media player, this app also checks file headers rather then file extensions and will like this
also detect the format of the file.
They probably use a php script to stream downloads and in some browsers it might result in you getting the php extension to the file instead of the
php is a serverside scripting language that generates the webpages you see on that site.
Since your downloading tutorials on a Delphi site, I would've thought you'd have had that kind of basic computer knowledge though.
