Before we begin I must inform you of something ... I HATE RM WITH A PASSION!!!! Now that thats said and done, lets begin I am trying to convert RM files to any format that I can get onto my Ipod. ffmpegX I tried, and ... no clue why, but its not working. It completes the encode in like ... .5 seconds ( thats a POINT five seconds ) and then when I try it, no success. Im trying to get it to mp4. Well, there is another program I have tried called Ipod Video Converter. PERFECT for what I need but due to my own complications ( long story ) that is un-available. I need to find a program that will allow to achieve my goal So, any help or advice sure would be nice And note that ... ( obviously ) I am a Mac user There are so many perfect programs out there ... with no Mac version. It kills me, anyway, good luck THANKS!
