What's a RMVB File?

RMVB, short for RealNetworks Variable Bitrate, is a private file container format created by RealNetworks. Currently, a common RMVB file use RealVideo10 + AAC (RealAudio10) encoding. RMVB, including RM, is the product when the network speed is not good. Its target is to use as little time as possible to get a barely clear picture quality with the smallest file size. Nowadays, you have many more choices like H.264 and MPEG-4. Under the same file size, H.264 encoded files provide higher quality image.

Today, RMVB is only popular in Asia, particularly China. The reason may be related to habits. At the beginning (probably 2000), many people used the RMVB format when encoding and distributing Japanese anime. They usually encoded videos and added subtitles to spread. At that time, RMVB could be seen anywhere. They are used to RMVB files and don't want to change, even though there are better choices like MKV with external subtitles support compared to RMVB's internal subtitles.

In fact, RMVB's codec RealVideo10 (or even RealVideo9 is based on H.264/AVC". RealVideo 10 refers to the under-developing H.264/AVC standard draft. RealVideo 10 can be considered as H.264/AVC Baseline Profile with B-Frame feature added. Therefore, RealVideo 10/RealVideo 9 and H.264/AVC have similar advantages and disadvantages, such as high compression efficiency and low codec efficiency. However, RealNetworks adds its own restrictions due to commercial reasons. This is totally different from the open and high-speed development of x264. Therefore, RMVB is going to die.

FAQs on RMVB Playback in Windows, Mac and Mobile Devices

Question:How can you import .RMVB files to Adobe Premiere?

Answer: Since RMVB/RM is not supported by Adobe Premiere, most people may convert RMVB to Adobe Premiere compatible format using video converter. But quality will be worse and file size probably larger in such cases. You may import RMVB and RM video files to Adobe Premiere using avs script and avisynth import filter plugin.

Question:RMVB and MKV format, which is clearer?
Answer: There is no comparability. MKV is the file container format, while RMVB is more related to RealVideo 10 encoding. To analyze the clarity, it mainly depends on what video codecs are used in the video file. Personally, I'll recommend MKV, because RMVB creates an illusion in order to achieve small size and clarity. Details are usually ignored. MKV, especially with H.264/AVC, emphasizes details and has better image quality.
