Converter by Herosoft, a software that can convert multiple formats
and just needs a few clicks to do this.

After the download and setup of the program please select the desired
"to" format - RM (real media) will be a good choice.  Adjust "target
audience" to the expected values for you audience (if the movie is to

Then adjust the output path and click the "Rec" button. The conversion
will start at once. After a rather short time the desired file will be
By adjusting "Audio format" and "Video quality" you can increase the
quality of your output until your wanted file size is reached.
The software is really versatile as it can convert several formats

I hope this tool helps to solve your problem. If you have any more
questions please ask for a clarification.

No search as I have a lot of experience in conversion video file formats.
