Although Parole supports RealMedia (.rmvb) files, when I try to add such files to the playlist the Gtk file chooser doesn't include these files in the list of "supported files". I need to select "all file" to have them displayed in the file list.
I just looked into this issue now. I'm not really sure why it's not working for you, as rmvb-files should be associated with Parole.
(The mimetype is application/vnd.rn-realmedia and that's there in git-master as well as in the 0.5 branch: http://git.xfce.org/apps/parole/tree/data/mime/mime-type-list.txt?h=0.5#n9)
We just need to add that to the filters in the open dialog. Currently the filters are:
So we should just have to add application/vnd.rn-realmedia, and any other special cases where the mimetype isn't quite categorized correctly.
I've added this to the 0.5.x branch and trunk. Please test and let me know if this is fixed.
I'm testing with latest GIT, and I can still see this issue: .rmvb files are not part of the Supported Files.
I checked out the relevant commit: http://git.xfce.org/apps/parole/commit/?h=0.5&id=252a2c50057c20b6299a7c11e20a1a6514f1a48f
and I'm wondering whether there is a typo there. I see that now Parole includes:
MIMETYPES="$MIMETYPES audio/x-pn-realaudio application/vnd.rn-realmedia
However on my Xfce (4.12) in the MIME Type Editor, I can see the following entries:
application/vnd.rn-realmedia (same as above)
audio/vnd.rn-realaudio (different from above)
Maybe you need to fix the typo and add the video RM MIME type to fix this?

Well, your suggestion didn't (and couldn't) work, but at least it made me dig to the bottom of this. So thanks! :)
I've just pushed a fix for this behavior (i.e. not actually using the mimetype-filters in the open-file dialog) to git-master, we'll backport it to the 0.5 series too.
I can confirm. It is fixed now. :)
