    Play this real audio .rm files

    You are given the task of playing this Real Media file

    Go to

    Click on "Hourly Newscast"

    Can you play this file? What software do you have? What steps does it take?

    Re: Play this real audio .rm files

    I have latest MPlayer and complete codec package.

    I had to save the .smil file to desktop, open it, and extract the real location.

    Then gmplayer does not play this format, it only plays some noise.

    On the other hand, rstp(sp?) stream plays fine on mplayer.

    I opened it up with Mozilla, then selected Windows Media Player, not Real Media. Plays like a charm with mplayer.

    Mind you.. in Mozilla, when I click this link that I extracted, it asks me to launch a player. It launched the first on the list, which in my case was Totem, and again it played like a charm.

    I told it to open realplayer, since I have that, you might want to download it, since you need it for playing realmedia files (at least I always have)

    HelixPlayer is another good Real player. I think it can open ram, or streaming, files, too.
    Linux without a C Compiler is like eating Spaghetti with your mouth sewn shut. It just doesn't make sense.
