Other Information

RM stands for Real Media, a format created by Real Networks for its native audio format. Mp3 on the other hand, refers to the MPEG-1 or MPEG 2 Audio Layer 3 format. Mp3 is the most popular audio format on the Internet. While every major player today supports it, the same cannot be said for RM. So if you have some RM files, you can convert them using any of the applications above.

If you are trying to learn how to convert RM to mp3, check the features of the programs before you download them. Many allow you to convert several files at once. This is a great feature especially if you have a lot of files. However, you need to be patient, because converting a lot of audio files takes time. It will also use most of your computer’s resources.
