ARMovie is ostensibly a multimedia container format used on Acorn RISC computer systems. Perhaps the most curious aspect of the format's design is its use of variable-length strings in the file header.

While apparently designed as a general container format, its most most notable use is in various Eidos Interactive computer games (using the extension rpl for Replay) including the Tomb Raider series. These FMV files contain video encoded with the ESCAPE video codec, and the audio is either uncompressed PCM or a custom IMA ADPCM variant.
