Which program reads " .rm " video files?

I have some video files with an .rm extension that WMP doesn't recognize. Can someone tell me which program i can use to view these files? Don't need a bloated product w/all kinds of bells & whistles - just a viewer.

The bloated product is over at

It's a proprietary format so even if you found a non-REAL viewer, it's likely to break as soon as they change the format again.

Thanks, Bob. I was hoping you'd have a better answer for me because I've installed/uninstalled Real One more times than I care to recall. What a horrible program. Guess viewing those .rm files isn't so important after all, unless . . . . . .

Is there any program that can convert the .rm files to .mpg, etc?
