Can I import RMVB into iMovie on Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks ?

This is an article about how to convert rmvb file to AIC codec for importing to iMovie on Mac OS X Mavericks, along with the introduction of  RMVB Converter for Mavericks.

RMVB,short for a variable bitrate extension of the RealMedia multimedia container format developed by RealNetworks. RMVB is typically used for multimedia content stored locally. Files using this format have the file extension ".rmvb".

RMVB files are extremely popular for distributing Asian content, especially Chinese television episodes and movies. For this reason, they have become noticeably present (though not entirely popular, partly due to their incompatibility with other media players) on file sharing platforms such as BitTorrent, eDonkey and Gnutella. So RMVB files can be great for online downloads.

Mavericks brings more iOS features into the MAC along with other tweaks including iBooks, Apple Maps, Finder Tabs, and a number of other time-saving enhancements. However, it becomes even harder for you to get RMVB files into video editing program like iMovie on Mavericks due to the unsupported codec.
