Opening RM files

Did your computer fail to open a RM file? We explain what RM files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your RM files.

What is a RM file?

Files that use the .rm file extension contain media files that are used by the RealNetwork's RealPlayer application. The RealPlayer is a computer application that streams audio and video data or links to streaming media files on the Internet. This allows users to watch or listen to the files in real time.

Files with the .rm extension contain compressed information. The data in the RM files is compressed using RealNetwork's RealAudio and RealVideo codecs, making them easier to distribute and store. Files with the .rm extension are commonly used to listen to Internet radio stations or to watch movies on the Web.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
