Converter RM to WMV

RM is a video file format developed by RealNetworks. It uses the RealPlayer player, that is, a program for streaming audio and video files. The format contains audio and video data or links to streaming, which can be played back as it downloads. The RealMedia Player program was in great demand when they connected to the Internet using a modem, and when there was practically no broadband access to the global network. The large compression ratio of the format provided the opportunity to carry out online transmission of video and audio data. The quality of the output file, as a rule, was low. Today, such files are often used in order to broadcast Internet radio and Internet video. In the .RM format, music and video are found on the global network or on Western cable channels, on Internet radio stations. Support for this format is carried out by such mobile phones and smartphones as Nokia, Ericsson, Sony, iPhone, as well as mobile devices that operate on the Google Android operating system. Files with the extension .RM are compressed using proprietary codecs RealVideo and RealAudio. Individual Real Media files can be played using a VLC media player that partially supports RM files.

WMV is a common video file format developed by Microsoft and designed to store or transfer video data. It takes its name from the abbreviation of the name of the Windows Media Video technology itself, with which the file is encoded. Codecs for WMV format are installed automatically along with any version of the Windows operating system. Playing WMV files is possible on almost any media player. Such files may contain both Windows Media Video video data and Windows Media Audio audio data. The format also supports the use of DRM protections to prevent copying.
