How do you get Gomplayer to play rvmb movies?

I have a rvmb movie that plays on VLC Player but it won't play on GOM Player. Uninstalled Real Player & installed the Klite codec pack but now I just get the video with no sound.

I have already went into Preferences - Other - File types & made sure it rvmb was checkmarked.

maybe the klite mega codec pack is missing the rmvb codec for gomplayer.
vlc is great in that it tends to play anything you throw at it

doesnt gom player search for codecs? is there any option within there to do that?

I don't know if it searches for codecs, I don't think so. When I downloaded the Klite, I made sure the rvmb was selected. It's playing it, just that the sound doesn't work.

there is 2 k-lite codec packs right? which one did u use, klite codec or klite mega codec. I have tended to use the latter. Not sure what the differences are apart from maybe more codecs?

checked the download sizes, mega codec pack is larger by about 4megs. When you install it, go through and do custom and check all the codecs its gonna installed. Looks like the video codec is fine but not the audio
In your current install, I dont know if its possible to update the codecs.

Try installing the Real Alternative codec (which also supports MPC)

I have already tried the real alternative codec which didn't work. I have the Klite codec & it plays the video but without sound.

Is the sound OK in Media Player Classic?

I don't use Media Player Classic, I'm using GOM Player. But yes sound is fine as when I play any other file it has sound. Only rvmb files it will not play sound.

The reason for asking is MPC is known to work fine with Real Alternative so if the Audio plays in your .rvmb with MPC we know it's a problem with GOM seeing the audio decoder.  If there's no sound for the .rvmb in MPC then there's either a problem with the file or the Windows installation of the decoder.
