I've never used it myself, but I've read that ffmpeg will do the job. It's a command-line app, though.

I think RealMedia goes after any programmer that makes something to do this - REal feels that everything made with RealVideo is their property.

And the player is crap. I'm not talking about the Mac version, which is crap because it's a 4-year old Mac OS 9 app. I'm talking about the modern Windows version, which is slower, has more ads, more bugs, and longer "wizard" screens than anything.

I'll admit that the RealPlayer which I use in Classic once in a while to watch DragonBall Z episodes play better than the most recent Windows media Player for Mac. That is craptacular. Crapulicious.;
