Hi baroudi,


i tried winff but it says "unsupported format" and ffmpeg doesn't work!!:confused:

I see you already have a copy of FFmpeg on your system. Could you try the following suggestions to get the full potential from your copy:

HOWTO: Easily enable MP3, MPEG4, AAC, and other restricted encoding in FFmpeg
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1117283

and then identify your troublesome file from the commandline as follows:


ffmpeg -i my_file.rm

If you post the fill terminal output I am sure the correct syntax for conversion can be suggested for this file.

All the best,

Andrew

Hi barudi,


Well it worked thx Andrew.

If you mean the script thanks are for stumbleUpon who did most of the initial work :-). Last time I looked at the script and my modifications it was still a little rough around the edges...

And of course if you meant the FFmpeg page FakeOutdorsman is your man!

Hi again barudi,

I will admit that I have not tried this application but I see Medibuntu has a package that should fit the bill for you:

Package: rmconverter [non-free/sound]
http://packages.medibuntu.org/jaunty/rmconverter.html

The best way to get this program would be to add the Medibuntu repository to your repository list. Details here:

Medibuntu - Ubuntu Community Documentation
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu

I would be interested to hear how you find this program, I am just in the process of installing it myself :).
