convert realplayer file (.rm) to .mpg?

I'm doing a group project in communications class and I need to convert a few RealPlayer files (.rm) to another file format so that I can insert them into a Powerpoint presentation. powerpoint supports inserting .avi .wmv .mpg .mpeg and others, but if i can convert .rm to .mpg i'll be set. I would prefer to do it in linux and then just copy the .mpg files to a windoze machine. I'm saving the RealPlayer streams off the internet by doing:

mplayer -noframedrop -dumpfile out.rm -dumpstream rtsp://url/to/file.rm

It would have been beautiful if powerpoint would import a .rm file but no such luck. I run SUSE 10.0

found this, because google is my friend -

claims to convert rm to mpeg (and only in linux!)

hopefully, you can compile and install, but you know how it is....

keep us posted.
