I want to try making an AMV... but all the videos I have can’t be imported onto my Windows Movie Maker (T_T) it always says: “The file .rmvb is not a supported file type, and it cannot be imported into Windows Movie Maker." Or that the proper codecs needed aren’t installed.
I... really don’t know any computer terms. They seriously confuse me, but I’ve tried going with some of the advice posted here. I’ve tried Real Alt. but it still didn’t work.
Maybe I’m doing something wrong? Ugh... I don’t know anymore. I’ve been trying for months, but something always goes wrong.
I’m beginning to think that there’s some kind of special force out there that doesn’t want me to make this AMV. T_TT
Ugh. I have the EXACT same problem. Please help, somebody! T___T
i have the same problem as Janet,
can anyone please tell me how to put a subtitle for realplayer, tryin to watch a drama with RMVB file but none of the player accept it
i downloaded media player classic can open the file but dnt no how to add the subs plus i download subtitlesplugin but that somehow didnt work neither
install real alternative, then u can play rmvb files with mpc
Download K-Lite Codecand install. If you’re using Media Player Classic, that codec should do the trick. And if it doesn’t, you have to mess around w/ your settings until it does.
But it’ll most likely work from the start.
LIKE MANY PEOPLE HERE, I SPENT COUNTLESS HOURS TRYING TO CONVERT MY RMVB TO A FORMAT THAT I CAN PLAY ON MY DVD PLAYER. INITIALLY I GOT THE 'CAN’T READ' OR 'NON-SUPPORTED' ERRORS. I FINALLY FOUND THE SOLUTION AND HOPE THIS HELPS.
1. IF THE FILES ARE IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE, MAKE SURE THE FILE NAME & ALL FOLDER NAMES ARE IN ENGLISH ALPHABET/NUMBERS WITH NO WEIRD CHARACTERS.
2. *DO NOT* USE REAL ALTERNATIVE. IT DOESN’T WORK. THE REAL MEDIA PLAYER IS THE ONLY ONE THAT WORKS. THE FREE VERSION WILL DO. JUST NO MATTER WHAT, THE REAL ALTERNATIVE JUST DOESN’T CUT IT. YOU’LL GET THE ERROR MESSAGES IF YOU USE REAL ALTERNATIVE.
3. I TRIED A NUMBER OF CONVERTERS. SO FAR THE ULTRA RM CONVERTER SEEM TO WORK BEST.
HOPEFULLY THIS SOLVES MOST OF THE ISSUES POPPING UP HERE.
SUPER is useless if you get the 'can’t read file' message with other softwares. Sothink, EO Video, and Allok softwares doesn’t work either. So IF YOU WANT TO CONVERT RMVB THEN FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS ABOVE. OTHERWISE YOUR FILES MAY INDEED BE CORRUPTED.
Hey.

.rmbv.001 002 003 004 can be converted to one file within any format ( .mpg .avi .mp4 .3gp .etc ) by using few limited tools that works. Go browse around files below and figure.
Total Video Converter

hi i use alshow to view real media files i hate real player
its a resource hog!!! but i wont to convert this for my ipod any ideas please? i tried converting it to avi first and mpeg i get very good picture but no sound my codec works cos it plays just fine without converting it am i missing sumthing?
Well first you need the XVID Codec, thwen instal the RMVB Converter (Google it :}) then convert the RMVB file into xvid format and itll be able to import into windows movie maker! =]
Hope it helps, Ive spent the last week trying to figure it out.
OK wanting to remove real player but not have to waiste hours upon hours of time converting files?
Try Real Alternative and it should work.
Otherwise, convert all your rmvb files.
You can use MainConcept Reference to do those conversions.
Your problem is the converter, try converting the audio separately, as some converters I’ve used (Not listed here) have problems doing both, but when they’re done a simple muxing should do the trick to get your audio with it’s video.
I personally use the matroska container, and h264 video (usually 800-1000 Kb/s) with aac audio (192-320), and the picture and audio are perfect with a small output file, roughly 680Mb to 900Mb.
For my muxing I use MKVToolnix
hey if i have a file rmvb.002 or sth like that, can i convert it to .wmv or other viewable formats?
You need Winrar or 7zip to extract that archive.
THen, do what you want with it. There should’ve been more files with that too....
.001, .002, etc, .rar (possibly included)
hi... i hav this.rmvb file but when i play it with mpc... there’s no sound out... i already hav the k-lite codec... what should i do? can u guys explain it in more detail... really need it please...
Use SUPER for converting formats, it’s the best program to do such operations.
I have a DVD player and i have movies with extension RMVB i dunno how to let them play on the DVD ...
i know i have to convert them but they would take larger space ... that is first
second if i made them AVI would they play automatically on the DVD player ?
thnx in advance
