rm type question...

I know that you need Real Alternative/Tara plugin to play RM files, but when I play RM files, it plays in a different video screen.

Can I make it to play through the same video screen that other video files play though? Which I would guess be the WinAMP default.

Yes, but only if you remove the Tara plugin (or edit Tara.ini to remove association with .rm files) and then add RM to the Extension List in the DirectShow Decoder (in_dshow) config... which should work if Real Alternative is installed, and should work for (most) RA and RM files (ie. not .ram or .smil playlists/streams).

I am able to play the videos through Winamp's video thing now, but their are certain RM files not working...

When I pause the RM's not working, and view file info, they say they are using:
AC3 Filter
Real Media Splitter

The ones that work, and I view their file info say:
RealAudio Decoder
RealMedia Splitter
RealVideo Decoder

Help?

I would like to know why this problem occurs.

Well, alas, there's no guarantee that the combination of Winamp, RealAlternative, and DirectShow will be able to play all RM content.

Also, it's pretty rare that RM files use AC3 audio content (Real Media usually uses RA audio, or sometimes MP3)

Make sure you've got the very latest versions of RealAlt and AC3Filter.

Then go to AC3Filter config and make sure it's configured to only handle AC3.
Control Panel > AC3Filter > System tab:
Use AC3Filter for: AC3 (uncheck PCM, MPEG Audio, if checkmarked).

I have the latest version of both RealtAlt, and I just now installed AC3Filter.

For some reason, the RM video, plays really fast and makes weird bleep sounds.

Hmm... so AC3Filter wasn't even installed before?
(which doesn't sound possible if dshow said it was using it)

Are the files which say they're using RealMedia Splitter and AC3Filter definitely video files, or just audio? Any chance of a link to a zipped sample file?

Do these files play ok in Media Player Classic (the player which comes with RealAlt)?

I think WinAMP had AC3 Filter installed, so I removed what I installed.

The RM files that use AC3, worked with Tara plugin, but not with the settings I have right now, the other RMs work, just not the ones that uses AC3.

Is there a good converting program that will convert RM files to MPG? Or maybe AVI?
