I'm trying to download some anime shows, but the episodes I want to watch are in the .rmvb format that I've never heard of before. What do I need to view these files?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
RMVB is an abbreviation for RealMedia variable bitrate. It is an extension of the RealMedia multimedia container format developed by RealNetworks.
As opposed to the more common RealMedia container, which holds streaming media encoded at a constant bit rate, RMVB is typically used for multimedia content stored locally. Files using this format have the suffix .rmvb.
RMVB files are typically much smaller in file size than their .mpeg formats, while still retaining reasonable quality. For this reason, they have become common among file-sharing protocols such as BitTorrent. Support is now available in a wide variety of multimedia players, including the proprietary RealPlayer 10 and the open-sourced Media Player Classic, using an appropriate DirectShow filter.

Not that I am advocating or supporting free downloads of ripped media.
Check this out.

Its streaming video. Just like a .rm file is streaming audio. Lower quality but loads easy for putting up on a website.

And this is why using YouTube and Google Video is such a great idea ;)
