Often encountered issues in playing or converting RAM files? Never mind! The following article will give the answer.

Symptoms in converting RAM files

Situation 1: I recently acquired some RAM (RealPlayer files) and I'm desperate to convert them to MP3. Then I have downloaded several decoders for converting .ram to mp3. But whatever I use, the converter keeps on going forever and nothing works out.

Situation 2: I have several .ram audio files that I would like to convert to .mp3 so that I might play them on my Sandisk m240 mp3 player. The files are all 1KB in size, and whenever I click on one of them RealPLayer opens and starts playing the file. I tried using Audacity, but receive a message telling me that the files cannot be opened since they are Playlist files which only contain links to other files.

Situation 3: I have a bunch of *.ram files. They are 1Kb and contain a link to a *.rm file on the net somewhere. The files are Audio and video. Is there a way to convert these files to anything like *.wmv *.avi or *.mpg?

What is .ram file?

In mention of .ram, it is usually referred as the file extension for the RealAudio file format. In many cases, web pages do not link directly to a RealAudio file. Instead, they link to a .ram (Real Audio Metadata) or SMIL file. This is a small text file containing a link to the audio stream. When a user clicks on such a link, the user's web browser downloads the .ram or .smil file and launches the user's media player. The media player reads the PNM or RTSP URL from the file and then plays the stream.

Another case about .ram file is that we mistakenly save the .rm or .ra media files as the wrong .ram file extension.
