Apparently nobody has an answer yet to this problem.
I upgraded to RP11 just today. It's a nice feature, this recording,
but when its format is totally incompatible with any other software
and cannot be converted either, it's almost useless!
Once again it is an example of the arrogance of the makers of the
Realplayer.

I watch the webcam at Pete's Pond in Botswana a lot. And like to
record from it and make (little) video's to put on the Internet.
But it's a lot of extra work to convert the .rm files first in order
to edit the raw material. But at least thát format CAN be converted!
Another solution would be for Microsoft to adjust WindowsMovieMaker
so that these recordings don't need converting. ;-D
I have been searching for software all day long, but haven't found
anything yet.
Help would be greatly appreciated by many people, I'm sure!

Realplayer will burn your ivr movie file onto DVD's for you to watch
on your regular TV. You have to buy Realplayer Plus and than you can
do it. After you have it burned onto a DVD I am sure you can with it
as you please.

Bill,

I have your same problem. .ivr Files are a "Video format developed by RealNetworks for sharing video clips on the Web; may be created by using the "Record" feature in RealPlayer 11 or later; saved in a proprietary format that can only be opened with RealPlayer."

Basically, Real converts these videos to .ivr files so that you don't use other video players except Real to view them, and so you'll pay Real for a subscription to be able to convert the files. If you actually right click on the .ivr files in your Real Library there will be an option saying "Covert Media Format..." and if you click on that it will tell you you have to upgrade to Real Player Plus in order to convert.

I've been trying to find out how to convert them all day now, I've even tried a couple of free video converter programs, but so far the only two ways I've found that work are:

1. To update to Real Player Plus through the real website and then your Real Player will convert the files, but this costs money for the subscription, plus I've heard the service is somtimes crappy anyways.

2.You can also burn your files to a dvd or video cd and then rip them back to your computer and they'll be in another format. The downside is that this can take more time if you want to convert a whole lot of files and you have to have dvd's and cds at your disposale. but at least it works.

Damn Corporate Machines, Good luck man!
