    I am new to mac with a recently purchased Mac Mini. One of my favorite websites offers audio clips (of an archived radio program) that can be opened and listened to online (not MP3's) One of the formats that can be opened is Win, -which I'm assuming will not work with a Mac, and also Realaudio files which I thought would work. But when I click on the realaudio icon to download, the mac doesnt recognize the file. Is this format compatible w/ Mac? what am I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance,

    You need the RealPlayer application to play RealAudio files - there is a RealPlayer version for Mac users, though I'm not sure where Real's website is :eek:

    Thanks guys,

    I guess i looked at everything but the obvious. For some reason I thought that Real Player was already installed. Its up and running now, thanks again.
