I have downloaded a movie, but its in rmvb format. To my surprise it doesnt play on the different players i have: windows media player and VLC.

Are there any tools that i could use to convert the format?

I really didnt know that this format is not able to play on many common video players on pc's :flowers:

Thanks alot all,

cheers

:thumbsup:

.rmvb - RealVideo Variable Bit Rate File

This site, describes 2 ways to do it.
The first one, Convert RMVB with RM Converter, uses a "pay for" program that will convert it to AVI, WMV, MPEG or DivX.

The second one, Convert RMVB with VirtualDub, is a little more involved and uses 3 different programs, but all of the programs are freeware.
