    Basic real player some RMVB format cannot play


    Dear all,

    I have some RMVB videos can't play with real player. How can I do without reinstalling real player, converting?

    Erm, what's so difficult about reinstalling a program? It would take less than 5 minutes, no?
    But I guess you could convert them (but trust me, that would take a while). Have you tried installing the Real Player codec without Real Player itself?

    I don't have the setup file. Reinstalling is difficult because need to download the setup file. I will try converting.
