There arent any ways to convert RealMedia files to MPG or AVI or anything useful for that matter. Its Real's proprietary format and they seem to like keeping it that way. As far as MPG to AVI format conversion QuickTime will do that for you via the export menu.

The quicktime player will export to lots of formats. Just the regular old player available from apple. Im not sure whether you need the regular or pro version though. Exporting may require pro.

weed and usvba I know this is about 2 years late but for anyone who is looking into this question I thought that it is important to update the answer, and since this is the most current posting asking this question here goes.

I have often pondered that very question myself and I found that there is software out there to do that type of conversion, in fact there's multiple.  Check out http://www.lynn3686.freeserve.co.uk/convertrm.html for a list of them.  I personally have not used any of the software so best of luck
