Similar to MPG format, MOD file format is created by Panasonic and JVC to contain video recordings with digital Camcorders. The recorded videos are directly saved in this format on different models of Camcorders manufactured by Panasonic, JVC and Canon. Any system which supports MPEG-2 video can also play MOD files. MOD files are compatible with DVD players and if renamed to .MPG, it can be used as an MPG file. MOD files generally contain standard definition video, with a maximum resolution of 480i or 576i. Compared to modern powerful video container formats this format is a little behind. But still a lot can be done with MOD files on VideoStudio Pro. For some purpose, you might want to convert MOD to RMVB.

Here I will show you how to get RMVB video file from source MOD video file. At the same time, you can convert MOD to AVI.

Part 1: MOD and RMVB

What is MOD?
MOD is a computer file format used primarily to represent music, and it was the first module file format. MOD files use the “.MOD” file extension, except on the Amiga which doesn't rely on filename extensions; instead, it reads a file's header to determine filetype. A MOD file contains a set of instruments in the form of samples, a number of patterns indicating how and when the samples are to be played, and a list of what patterns to play in what order.

What is RMVB?
Full named as RealMedia Variable Bit Rate, RMVB is a variable bit rate (VBR) extension of the RealMedia Multimedia Digital Container format developed by RealNetworks. The video format is initially positioned in the video streaming application, and different compression ratios can be set according to different network transmission rates, so that real-time transmission and playback of image data on a low-rate network can be realized. The advantage is that the file is small and easy to spread on the Internet. The disadvantage is that the clarity is not very satisfactory.
