    I downloaded a Real Player video on a Windows 7 desktop via YouTube that I want to convert into a Windows Media Player video on my Windows XP desktop.

    What video conversion program (preferably free) would be the best for this task? :confused:

    I don't know if it will do Real Palyer video, but I use Freemake.
    It does say it will convert from RM, so I suppose it will.

    I'm really, REALLY surprised that Real Player is still around.

    Seriously. That was just the worst shit ever. I don't think there's anything they could possibly do that would ever convince me to give their software a chance again.

    Wow!
    From the Wikipedia:

    Yeah, I'm so amazed it's still around.
    I haven't seen a video file with an RM extension in forever -and thankfully so.

    I wonder if you still get a ton of AOL crap installed without your consent if you install the new Real Player.

    Real Player still exists?

    I remember watching Beast Machines on it... well I shouldn't really use the word "watching".
