For native RMVB and FLV support you probably have to look at some generic Chinese PMPs - to the best of my knowledge no Korean/Japanese/American/etc brand products support those video formats.

FLV no, only the CP3 supports that format.
RMVB yes, with RV9 or RV10 video codec and RA audio codec, VGA resolution and 500K bitrate

dfkt has to update his knowledges

I meant *both* formats at the same time. I don't know any brand player that does both. Sure is easier supporting Real Media and Flash Video when you're not paying license fees for the codecs. Not that it matters much for the western market anyways, RMVB seems to be only popular in Asia (thank gawd). Too bad that low-quality FLV videos gained so much popularity, and/or that no decent player supports them.

Ah okay
The Samsung CP3 supports both (RMVB licence)
But it has been made for the Chinese and Russian market and concerning FLV, it only supports "normal" quality from youtube (not HQ or HD)
So it's a bit restrictive...
And unfortunately it is the worst Samsung mp3 player ever lol
