    RealPlayer Streaming saved to PC

    I have purchased a program from USA that will only come down as a Real Player streamed whatsit.

    As I only have a slow modem - (not broadband as yet!) I would like to save the files to PC so that I can hear them at my leisure. As yet I can't find any way in RP that will let me save to file.

    Can anybody shed some light ? ?

    I was looking at the same thing a bit recently. Usually RP streams the files from the internet with max download rate. It saves them as tmps in your temporary folder. If you have a way of noticing when they are done downloading you can copy them from there.
    The problem just begins there though: It seems like they are not really a known file type RealPlayer will not open them as such. I have not found a way to get around that yet <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15>

    Thanks - On a little bit more investigation I have found a program Polderbit Sound Recorder and Editor that will do what I want. PolderbitS Software is in Holland and their program is great. http://www.polderbits.com will get you there. Enjoy

    <P ID="edit" class=small>Edited by Phil Rabichow on 23-Jun-02 18:33.</P>Doesn't RP save the temp file with a .ram extension? I've saved a couple of those & can double click them to play.

    Never mind. I just tried it & you have to access the Internet to play it. So it must just be a shortcut. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    If you look inside that .ram file (It's text) you can copy the link to the music file and, if they haven't protected it, you can download it...
