Real Media converter
 
I did a search and couldn't find anything. Anyway, is there a free utility that can convert a Real Media file into .avi or .mov? Thanks.

I've never found anything. I'd love to, though!

Well, I would recommend using Media Player Classic which you can play QT and Real media files too. Jack of all trades ... rather than converting Real to .avi ... unless you have a specific reason to do so.

yeah, I've got some real media files I want to burn as a VCD and my nero doesn't accept them

If you're willing to dish out the money, EO Video is supposed to be able to convert RealMedia files to AVI or MPEG1 files.

If you're interested in a no-cost solution, you could give TINRA a try to see how well it works converting it to AVI for you.

toq has the right idea.

I stumbled upon this thread doing a search for you over at anandtech.com forums ...

Hope this helps.

TINRA is the only one I can think of. I've played with it a bit with some success. You may have to do some experimentation to find the CODEC settings that work best for you.

The first question will be, how powerful is your computer? TINRA seems to convert the stream on the fly, so if your computer can't keep up with the conversion for some reason, you'll lose information. This is where experimentation may come into play - Trying to find a combination of CODEC and settings that will be fast enough on your computer and still give you the results you want.

I downloaded something a while ago called rmtoavi (at least the setup file is named that)
I haven't played around with it though

If you have the money I think Canopus ProCoder is the best tool for such operations... it's professional software, used in studios and the like.
