RMVB is a proprietary format, if I recall correctly. You will need Real Player to play those.

1. Download the .bin file from http://www.real.com/linux/
2. Open a gnome terminal and browse to the folder where you saved the .bin file
3. Run the following commands:

$ sudo chmod a+x RealPlayer11GOLD.bin
$ sudo ./RealPlayer11GOLD.bin

Happy watching!
