I'd be interested to know how smaller they are in relation to the quality of the image (and resolution).
Guess I'll look it up, but still the compatibility issues wouldn't be worth using this, even it the "price" of slightly larger file size.
I have a >32TB system right now for my collection, but I'll simply stream from it using KalemSoft, or load up what I'd need if I'd be away from home.
(I still haven't managed to get Kalemsoft to run via internet).
Update: checked about RMVB and did not find a single favourable thing about it, it's regarded as the worst video file one can get in every thread I browsed, and the stats about it are far from comparable to h264 or even Xvid codecs using AVI or MP4 containers.
