Software for converting .ivr file to mpeg vcd format

Nov 6, 2007 9:06PM PST

Hi all,

I just recorded a few files using Real Player.

This is in .ivr format(internet video recording).It plays in Real Player.

Any software available free which can convert the .ivr files to mpeg vcd format so I can burn them to CD & watch on a DVD/VCD Player?

Any help appreciated.

Have you found a product to convert .IVR to another video format? I'm trying to edit my .IVR files and I know I need to convert them first.

Real Player 11.0.5 (free) will record in RM (not that blasted ivr). There are tools that will convert RM to avi, mp4, mpeg, etc.

.IRV TO .RM Preference
Jan 27, 2009 9:50AM PST

I looked at the Preferences in RealPlayer 11.0.06 and I can't find how to change the recording file type from .IRV to .RM.

Can anyone help with the menu location to make this very helpful change?
