    Hi all
    We have a lot of audio files at work (school) in MP3 format (Languages files etc) but we have a Helix streaming server which requires Real Media files. I have Real Producer on a windows PC in my office but my Mac Pro is hugely more powerful than the PC. Is there a way to convert the MP3s to RM on the Mac? Obviously cutting out the PC reduces the number of steps to getting the final file.

    Thanks

    Daz :)

    Mac Pro, right? You can install Windows on it and run Real Producer that way.

    Yes I have Parallels installed but it drags when converting to RM. I was hoping there would be an app out there that could do things quickly.

    Thanks

    I'm sure you could run Windows through Boot Camp for native support, thereby harnessing the entire hardware.

    It's a work machine with licensing for Parallels, the school wouldn't shell out for another VM package unfortunately.

    Not to worry, I'll just use the windows machine for now but thanks :)

    Boot Camp is completely free; it comes with just about any Intel Mac out there. It isn't virtualization - - it turns your Mac into a full-fledged Windows box.

    Take a look at this: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1461
