What is RMVB file? How to play it? My friend says that it is a video file, but I can’t play it on my Windows Media Player. What program do I need to use to play it?
RMVB stands for RealMedia Variable Bitrate, a video format that many people prefer to publish their video files or download videos from internet since it has lower bitrate and the size is also smaller than other video formats, but the quality is still pretty well maintained.
There are two ways you can choose to play this file. The first option is using the RealPlayer, a free program from the Real site. But I don’t like using this one because it is plastered with ads. The second option is using Real Alternative. This one lets you to play RMVB files without having to install RealPlayer / RealOne Player. With the help of Real Alternative, you can play RMVB video on Windows Media Player. I myself usually watch Naruto in rmvb format on Windows Media Player with the help of Real Alternative.
