Re: How to play rmvb format movies?

For info :

Quote:
RealMedia Variable Bitrate (RMVB) is a variable bitrate extension of the RealMedia multimedia container format developed by RealNetworks.

As opposed to the more common RealMedia container, which holds streaming media encoded at a constant bit rate, RMVB is typically used for multimedia content stored locally. Files using this format have the file extension ".rmvb".

Limited support is available on some media players, generally on the Windows platform, including the proprietary RealPlayer 10 and the open-sourced Media Player Classic, using an appropriate DirectShow filter or Real Alternative. MPlayer and some other programs such as totem are able to play RMVB files in Linux/UNIX-based x86 machines through the use of WIN32 DLLs or native closed-source libraries.

Try with the Real Alternative 1.90, its able to play RealMedia files without having to install RealPlayer/RealOne Player. It comes with the required codecs for RMVB .

If still you won't be able to play rmvb file install the Vista Codec Pack or XviD or GOM Player . I use GOM player for all video formats. and i think the Real Alternative is best choice for this format.
