I have a movie in RMVB format, it was originaly a DivX, can someone point me in the right direction to convert it back to an avi or mpg. I have renamed 1 file extention to .rm and tried rm to avi converter, go nowhere fast.
any help accepted with gratitude please help me
Right then, just get winavi to convert to mpeg. It takes about 30 minutes on a slow comp and about 15 on a tidy one. To convert to vob you get dvdauthor. I believe its freeware. This will convert to vob which you can then burn to your dvd. I know its a right pain and why someone would put it in this format is beyond me. I wouldnt recommend installing any Real products as they are shat and prone to foul ups. Honestly they arent worth the time to download. If this seems to be too much work, then download your file in another format.
I also have a problem with RMVB files as they take more resources than XVID.Tried everything but nothing works. until i discovered this. WHat i tried is to lower your display resolution say, 24bit to 16 bit or to 256 color. With a lower display resolution, the PC performs better and there are less frames dropped.
Now my playback is smoother.
By the way, I have been looking for a DVD Player that directly plays RMVB files and so far have been unsucessful. The only Player that does it is the X-Box which is dated now.
Does anyone know of any ?
U can convert RMVB to AVI or other formats, then play it.Real player need more memory source.
I just downloaded a file that was RMVB and had no problems playing or converting it.
This is how.....
Get the free player from RealMedia(currently version 10).
On the install, click on the '+' icon next to divX(you’ll see it) and uncheck the 'install 60day trial' or whatever it says, then continue with the install.
this will instal the realmedia video codec, which is what you need to view and convert RMVB files.
then get yourself a copy of WinAvi and convert the RMVB file to an mpeg Layer-2 file (this will increase the file dramatically, but do not worry.)
you can now play the RMVB file in realplayer or play the mpeg file in anything else.
If you want, you can re-encode the mpeg at a lower rate(especially audio(to 4000)) with something like Ulead DVD MovieFactory(fantastic app). You can then use any authoring software if you wish to burn the file to DVD or SVCD.
Using TMPEnc, you can de-multiplex the mpeg into audio and video, and then recombine them as sometimes converting RMVB files can cause the audio to be out of sync with the video.
to the person above asking the easiest way to make an *.rmvb files into dvd/vcd, i suggest two programs
the first, river past video cleaner, to convert to avi, and then DVDsanta, to burn to dvd/vcd easily
Just tell me please, I installed Real Alternative and can watch the .rmvb files using MPC but! it’s impossible to change the brightness on it. What should I do to solve this problem, it’s no reason to watch a dark movie.. :( Which player can set the brightness?
i can tell u that 99% of players out there do not do that because that is not what players are for. If u want to adjust brightness just change gamma on your computer during the video.
This may be off-topic, but this issue puzzles me...
I downloaded .rm video, all I can hear is audio..no video whatsoever.
Earlier I also had .rmvb video, which I was able to play in the Media Classic Player (after going through some solutions mentioned in this thread). Though, It still doesn’t work in Real Player V10.
Any idea why the real player or Meida Classic Player will not render any video for .rm?
Any help is highly appreciated..!!
In general, RealPlayer 10.5 should work fine for most RMVB files.
Recently I have some problem while I need to convert some RMVB videos into DVD using DVD Sanda (so far the BEST software). I have even tried using MPEG$ Movie maker before and it works too but only for some files, it couldn’t.
Most of my Hong Kong series which in rmvb are having problem when i need to convert them and when I use DVD Sanda to open the files, it states “Unable to open the file..." but when i play it using Real Player 10.5, it plays well.
Anyone has any solution on this?

For Champ_Ras with the problems getting enough brightness in with these movies.
Some Mvovies are just to dark to watch (recorded improperly). In which case you will get some/little improvement by reading on.
If you are using the computer to view your clip the only one way to get more brightness than the software controls allow is to assess and if necessary upgrade your hardware.
First we should determine where the whether to upgrade the monitor or the video-card in the PC. If you have another monitor you can use (or borrow) try it with your computer. If it is better with another monitor then you could either get another one or use a video-card with video overlay (All Nvidia cards have this). The video overlay control that comes with card will be found in the display propeties. It makes any dark screen bright and can make the darker videos brighter automatically without affecting the brightness of the desktop.
Alot of you are saying just to use real media player but theres a problem with your advice. If you are all like me u don’t like viriuses, spyware, and adware. If you install Real Media Player your computers will constantly be filled with viriuses, spyware, and adware.
Hi my name is Henry. I have some RMVB files on a DVD disc. But i want to convert the RMVB files to VOB files so i can burn them onto a DVD disc so i can watch it on my DVD player. Can somebody help me please? If you find a program which converts RMVB to VOB, please give me the internet address for me to download the program.
WinAvi will convert rmvb to vob. You can get it from www.torrentspy.com
Sorry Toannas. To be a little more specific the RMVB file is originally a DivX file. So how do i convert this file? Please give me the website for me to download the program.
WinAVI does a very good job to convert most of RMVB or MPEG video files to DVD VOB file, then you can use a regular DVD burning program (just like NeroBurn) to burn it into DVD disk, then you can play the video with your TV.
WinAVI is very fast and has a the button that you simply click it to convert RMVB to MPEG, to AVI, to DVD easily.
I can play .RMVB files in my real player (Real Player 10.5 and my OS is Windows 98 SE and also in Media Classic too. But I cannot play the files with .rm and .ram . I can hear only sound but no video. Can any one tell that from where I can Download the Codecs and which Codecs will suit to play these files
Cucusoft mpeg/avi to dvd/svcd/mpeg converter Pro will convert rmvb file and has option to split large videos down to size will convert straight to vcd or dvd
