Porting from Vivo Audio

How can I port audio in the old Vivo format into something that will play with modern audio players? Let's say I don't have the original files.

Vivo was an audio format in the mid 90s. RealAudio bought them but there really is no support by them at all on this.

If you're handy with the command line, mplayer/mencoder can play and convert Vivo. A command line like:

mplayer -vo null -ao pcm:waveheader:file=filename.wav filename.viv

would write a wav file named 'filename.wav' from your Vivo file called 'filename.viv'. You could then encode the wav to mp3 if you needed.
