About RMVB file format
The RMVB file format, standing for 'RealMedia Variable Bitrate', is a video format created by RealNetworks, Inc. It is a variable bitrate extension of the RealMedia multimedia container format. As opposed to the more common RealMedia container, which holds streaming media encoded at a constant bit rate, RMVB is typically used for multimedia content stored locally. Files using this format have the file extension ".rmvb".
The advantage is RMVB format abandons Average Bit Rate and use Variable Bit Rate to compress video data. RMVB files have become a popular format for movie titles because they have smaller file sizes and lower bitrate with better quality compared to DivX.
