Dont listen the guy who say it's impossible, go to they explain a way to convert a rm to avi then the avi to mpeg...

Yes there is a program that can convert real audio and real video to avi. It is called TINRA and you can find it at the program is a little sketchy though. The avi file ends up becoming a heck of a lot bigger than the rm file... so if you want to convert a 40 to 60 meg real file, you'll need about 1 to 2 gigs of hard drive space. But the point is, after the file is in avi form, you can then convert that into an mpeg file which will bring the file size back to normal and then create your vcd.

its uncompressed. avi files have a limit to 2gb so demultiplex a small rm
