RM files used to be very popular a few years ago. Before the digital media technology started to develop in an increasingly high speed, a lot of online videos, streaming content and media for download on the internet were using the media file format “.RM”. As the media technology keep evolving, more and more better video format started to emerge, and the RM files are generally falling out of the mainstream. However, the RM files are not extinct on the internet. Nowadays, you can still get RM files from multiple channels. Since the RM files are not popular anymore and probably not compatible with the mainstream media platforms, it’s better that you convert RM to a more compatible media format like AVI.

As a file extension used by RealNetwork’s RealPlayer media player software for audio and video files, RM is able to achieve low-speed Internet video files for real-time transmission and playback, and it can be based on different rates of network data transmission to develop different compression ratio. It mainly includes RealAudio, RealVideo and RealFlash and typically used in conjunction with RealVideo and RealAudio and is used for streaming content over the Internet. We have taught you how to convert RM to MP4. Here I will show you 5 ways to convert RM to AVI.
