I've got a 97MB .rmvb file that fail to play on the Windows 98SE PC

I am using Real Alternative - media player classic 6.4.8.3

Everytime I try to play the file the 'This Program has performed an illegal operation and will shut down" box appears'.

Details:
MPLAYERC caused an exception c06d007eH in module MPLAYERC.EXE at 0167:005f6848.

I've got only 64MB of RAM on this PC, could this be the problem?

Thanks

I doubt that the amount of memory you have is the problem. I would suggest uninstalling and installing the latest version:
Media Player 6.4.9.0
If this does not work, try to verify that the media file is not corrupt by trying on a different PC.

Many thanks.
Since I am installing, is there a better player that plays the same format, say something that is lighter on system resources?

The multi-format VLC mediaplayer does not support this format

Thanks.

Real Alternative Media Player Classic is generally considered to be one of the best. I would stick with that. There are other players that can handle RMVB files, but I have no experience of them. If you want to try others, do a Goggle search and try some out.
