...and yet ANOTHER followup. RealVideo conversion found!

...*sigh*. Hopefully in the future there will be a way for guests to edit their own posted comments. Either that or I really need stop and think before I post comments.

Anyhow, it turns out that there *is* a simple way to convert *.rm files to AVI-DIVX/MPEG/etc. that I had completely forgotten about: ffmpegX. While it's a nice GUI-based app, the installation is a bit involved since there are 4 files (including the Realvideo libs) that the user must d/l and install themselves, due to license issues.

NOTE:There is an ongoing discussion as to whether or not the use of the Real/Helix libraries are allowed for transcoding purposes. Consult the Real's click-thru EULA prior to d/l-ing if this concerns you]
