    What app is necessary to run .rmvb files? Just Real Player? Or Quick Time with Perian is enough?

    Thank you.

    Perian doesn't support .rmvb. Copied and pasted from the Perian site:

    [Perian supports]
    File formats: AVI, DIVX, FLV, MKV, GVI, VP6, and VFW
    Video types: MS-MPEG4 v1 & v2, DivX, 3ivx, H.264, Sorenson H.263, FLV/Sorenson Spark, FSV1, VP6, H263i, VP3, HuffYUV, FFVHuff, MPEG1 & MPEG2 Video, Fraps, Snow, NuppelVideo, Techsmith Screen Capture, DosBox Capture
    Audio types: Windows Media Audio v1 & v2, Flash ADPCM, Xiph Vorbis (in Matroska), and MPEG Layer I & II Audio, True Audio, DTS Coherent Acoustics, Nellymoser ASAO
    AVI support for: AAC, AC3 Audio, H.264, MPEG4, and VBR MP3
    Subtitle support for SSA/ASS and SRT

    So you would need Real Player for playback of these files.

    Perian doesn't support .rmvb..I've try it before. I believe realplayer works just fine.

    Up the irons
    VLC wouldn't play this video type. A bit disappointing having to download and install Real Player. :mad: Oh well.
