As of right, as far as I can tell theres not much of a way to do it except extract the audio (with something like the plugin for Winamp) and then use a screen capture program to take shots of RealPlayer every frame (which isn't likely to work well). I've never been able to get Tinra to work right (I wanted to convert my ranma, oh my Goddess and Southparks over to VCD).

Do you have the latest version of Tinra. Also, try using the Tinra GUI.

Thank's for the heads-up on Vegas. I'm checking it out now. Also, in their comparison charts, they say Premere, Avid, and something from Ulead have Real support too.

You know, instead of having to convert RM stuff, if there was a RealMedia player for DC, we wouldn't have to worry about it :-) I'd much rather deal with my 1 disc of Ranma season 1 real videos then have to convert them to VCD and burn them to 8 or 6 discs (I may be able to fit 3 to a disc)
