Convert RMVB to WMA online, for free.
RealMedia Variable Bitrate (RMVB) is an extension of the RealMedia multimedia container format. It uses variable bitrate (VBR) compression, which means that it adjusts bandwidth depending how difficult or easy it is to compress a segment of the multimedia content, such as high-action versus low-action scenes.
RealPlayer supports playback of RMVB files in Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Since RealNetworks developed RMVB, RealPlayer is the default platform for this file type. It is available as a free download and is easy to use. It supports captions, subtitles, and streaming.
Other software that can open RMVB files include VLC media player and ALLPlayer, which are both free. Keep in mind that RMVB is proprietary and relatively uncommon; used mostly for playing files locally instead of streaming over the Internet.

Microsoft initially developed the Windows Media Audio (WMA) file format to compete with the MP3 file format. WMA is both an audio codec and audio format. WMA has evolved since its inception in 1999, with several updated versions: WMA Pro, WMA Lossless, and WMA Voice. It is a key component of Windows Media, which Microsoft discontinued.
As a key component of Windows Media, Windows Media Player supports WMA files and is usually the default program for opening these. Because of their relative ubiquity, however, many other players and programs support the file type. WMA files are also frequently used in online streaming.
Other programs that can open WMA files include VLC media player and UltraMixer. For mobile devices, try OverDrive Media Console, which has separate versions for Apple iOS, Google Android, and Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile.
