Okay, What's up with .Ram files (streaming audio supported under the RealPlayer software platform)? One thing I've been trying to do is play .ram files from a few websites I really like and the RealPlayer install I have for OS Tiger 10.4 doesn't seem to play any of them? It's the latest version so I dunno. I access all of these files online, which is important to mention because I've been thinking about just accessing these files via Window XP (the way I used to before I switched to the MBPro). However, that also opens my computer to all the Windows virus/malware BS I bought my MBP in order to avoid in the first place. Any thoughts/suggestions? Also, any recommendations on software for recording audio from the system sound card (recording exactly what your computer is playing directly to the HDD)?
