Do you support Real Audio?

We support Real Audio via HTTP streaming. If you want to setup HTTP streaming on your website please follow these instructions: 

Each sound requires two files in order to function: 

sound.ra - This is the actual Real Audio Sound File
sound.ram - This is the 'config' file for the sound.ra file

1. Create the 'config' file (for example, sound.ram) containing a RealAudio URL using a text editor (such as Notepad or SimpleText). For example, the contents of your file should be in the following form:

where your-domain is the name of your Web Server. For example:

Make sure your 'config' file ends with a .ram extension.

2. In your HTML document (for example, sound.htm), reference the 'config' file in a hyperlink. For example:

3. Upload your Real Audio Sound files, Real Audio 'config' files and updated HTML documents to your Web Server

4. When a user clicks on the link, the streaming file(s) begin to download if RealPlayer is installed on the user's computer. The RealPlayer begins playing after a few seconds; it does not need to wait for the entire file to be downloaded.
