This article describes how to play .rmvb video files.
The most simple way is to install [[VLC]], which plays .rmvb now, as well as many other video format.
# pacman -S vlc
Or you can install {{AUR|realplayer}}{{Broken package link|{{aur-mirror|realplayer}}}} from the [[AUR]].
Next, start it with:
$ realplay &
On the first run, a configuration wizard will set up the necessary options.
== .ram files ==
To play .ram files, this script is intended to replace the use of realplayer by using vlc instead : http://www.sputnick-area.net/scripts/realplay.bash
See comments inside.
==Conversion of RealMedia Files==
As RealMedia files are not widely (nor well) supported, it may be useful to convert them to another format. [http://ffmpeg.org/ FFmpeg] can be used for this.
# pacman -S ffmpeg
For example, to convert the video '''foo.rm''' to an mp4 file:
ffmpeg -i foo.rm -vcodec mpeg4 -sameq -acodec libfaac -ab 94208 foo.mp4
