    CAN'T !!

    :mad:

    EDIT: No, actually there is an app whose name I can't remember that will record whatever audio is playing on your Mac. Have you searched versiontracker.com? Whatever it is, that's where you'll find it.

    I wish I knew as well. I think there are like special real enabled servers for streaming so saving the ram file just links to those servers. If there is a way to save target as by getting the url from the ram file in txt pad I don't know if it will work.

    I would be downloading the "streaming" videos just so I could watch them, since it seems that anything in Real's horrible video format is unwatchable even with 5mbps connection.

    No there doesn't. That's the kind of thing that Real will go to great lengths to keep you from doing. They're a little funny that way--easily as user-unfriendly as the worst MS product. They're bad.

    SnapZ Pro will let you do it. Not amazingly long movies (due to RAM/disk space issues), but decently long streams.

    Also a slow and dirty way is ScreenRecord, then record the audio, then sync. But is it all worth it either way?
