Normally, when you download videos from websites like Youtube or create them using Adobe Flash they are saved in the FLV format. However, FLV files tend to be rather large and uploading or downloading them can prove to be quite a hassle, especially for users with a slower broadband connection. Therefore, creating RMVB videos from your FLV files can prove to be a quite efficient method of sharing videos quickly, and saving disk space.
You might also want to convert FLV videos to RMVB if you need to distribute Asian content, as RMVB is the format used for sharing TV episodes and movies in China and Taiwan. But, you might want to restrain from playing RMBV videos on DVD players or Xbox consoles, as these devices don’t generally offer support for this type of video files.

It can also help you save time by allowing you to add multiple files and convert them to the RMVB format, one by one.
