    I think that .ram files are basically a list of .rm files to play in sequence - at least they used to be. I've had trouble getting Linux media players to interpret them. Since they are (or should be) text files, you can view them with a text editor and then play the .rm files in sequence. Sometimes, content might be a streaming URL which can be played otherwise. Note that there is a realplayer application available for Linux, which does handle .ram files.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Hi Rubberman,

    Thanks for your advice.

    GStreamer needs following packages to play .RAM file;
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly
    w32codecs

    gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly already installed as default. After installing the other 2 packages Totem now can play .RAM files

    Good to know, about the bad+ugly gstreamer plugins. I only have the "good" plugins...
