How do I link to my RealAudio/Video files so they stream correctly?
  1. For each .rm (real audio file), create a plain text file with the extension .ram.
  2. Each plain text file contains only one line: the full URL of the .rm file.
  3. Link your html page directly to the .ram file (not the .rm file!).

I'm having problems with this - I have an "rm" file that I generated with Real producer, and I can open it directly. I upload it to my site, and I can open it directly from within RealPlayer (http://mydomain/file.rm), and indirectly (opening http://mydomain/file.ram). But when I go through a web page with an anchor tag (http://mydomain/file.ram), RealPlayer opens, then hangs and I have to kill it with the task manager. Any ideas?

I have not yet tried this but I thought the idea behind having a .ram file at least with the old RealPlayer V5 was that you could have multiple encoded files for different bandwidths and the Real server picked the appropriate file based on what speed line the user was using.

Yes, I got streaming to work for mp3 files referenced in ".ram" files as mentioned previously.

a RAM file can contain as many clips as you provide, just
seperate each one by line. Realplayer will then play each
one in sequence, as a playlist.

You can put any type of media file in the RAM file that
Realplayer supports.

I have gotten this to work with other files than rm files. Try it with MP3s!
