Like you, when I was trying convert rmvb files, I found this trick out of the blue.

All you need to do is install K-Lite that contains Real Alternative. Then copy and paste the rmvb files you want to convert----> this for backup in case something goes wrong. Change their extension. ie. filename.rm ----> filename.avi

Have to rename the extension so Nero can accept.

It's up to you where you want to copy and paste. Any folder will do. Should backup it first BEFORE you change the extension --- it's the last part of a filename.

To see the extension, you may need to do this - go to Control panel ---> click open Folder options ----> click the tab "View" ------> look for "Hide extensions for known file types". ----> Give this a check to see the extension.

Ex. filename.avi

change to -------> filename.rmvb

Hope this helps.

For advanced user, VirtualDubMod + Avisynth.

For beginner, MediaCoder or SUPER. Both are basically GUI for couple of command line media converters. Don't worry, both program includes the media converters. I think.

I used to try to do the same thing (about 3-4 years ago), burning DVD's from RMVB. After many hours of frustration, I bought a DiVX compatible DVD player and just used that. But the easiest and most economical solution is to get a very cheap laptop, hook it up to your TV (most digital sets now have VGA or even DVI inputs now), then you can play it directly from the laptop!
I am using an old discard from work (Dell D500 from 2003), it works perfectly for playing RMVB's. Even H.264/MPEG 4/AVC's play well on them if not from a Bluray original (on those I have to use a newer laptop with more horsepower to play well without sound synching issues).
The old laptops will probably cost you $100 on ebay to get but well worth it. Saved me hours of frustration (converting formats, burning DVD's into coasters, etc.) You can just download and play directly from the laptop and it's easy to store away in your living room without making it look like a wiring nightmare!

I hate to steal the thread with my own problem, but with so many "rmvb to avi/dvd" threads here, I'm afraid I'll get flamed for starting another one, so...

Has there been any posts about why some RMVB files are corrupted when trying to be converted? I know about all the different converters and tried a big handful of them (SUPER, WinAVI, Any DVD Converter, etc.) but NOT ONE works with my "Moonlight Resonance" RMVB's: they all report that the files are corrupted!!! However, they play perfectly on Realplayer.

I'm not sure if I'm a newb and this is a common problem with a widely posted solution, but I cannot find it, so can anyone confirm or help me with this problem of corrupted RMVB files? Thank you.

1. do u have the real alternative codec installed? the reason i ask this is cuz the converter software needs to recognize how to handle ur rvmb file. sure it plays fine on real player, but ur video software cannot,by itself, use real player to help encode ur file.

2. when dealin with super,etc. i think u should always utilize avisynth to ensure the encoder knows how to deal with ur file. ex:
sample rvmb.avs

directshowsource("c:\file.rvmb")

save, then drag this avs file into super, then convert.


good luck e'reone, happy encodin

Haven't tried Moon light's files because crazynet-2008 posted the avi version in the same forum. Why don't you d/l the avi instead? It's not to late to d/l now :-)

As for other rmvb, I have no prob converting with Media coder :-)

THanks for the help =) With itsukiD's tip on using Avisynth's AVS files to convert instead of using the RMVB directly worked. I'm still learning how to tweak the settings to get it to convert correctly (currently, no sound) but I think the hard part is figured out...

I'll also try the AVI files from the Moonlight Resonance thread.

Thanks!

Would you like to try this one software Magic Video Converter. It can convert anything.

I tried many times to convert RMVB to DVD directly using a video converter, but the video is very illegible. So I searched Google then I found a good article resolving this problem:
You can try this method just following this guide: http://www.dvd-creators.net/rmvb-to-dvd.html
