Convert Real Audio files to MP3s
Authored by: grau on Mar 09, '05 05:30:28PM

With

mplayer -playlist http://www.radioeins.de/meta/sendungen/elektro_beats/miller_hour/20050302.ram -ao -pcm:file=20041103.wav -vc dummy -vo null
I get the following:

Exiting... (End of file)

I do this having made the following preparations:
  • Real Player 10 installed
  • symbolic link to codecs in RP10 created at /Library/Application\ Support/ffmpegX/reallib
  • mplayer from ffmpegXbinaries230105.zip
Doing the same with some ram-files from amazon.de (containing besides the pnm-url another url of type rtsp) everthing works (almost...) as expected.

Not sure if you tried this - but if you enter that URL in RealPlayer it asks to update to the Dolby 3 plugin. I did so, thinking that would resolve problem with mplayer - but it does not. Sorry.

Yes, I entered the URL in Real Player. A download of some plug-in started (I don't remember, whether it was Dolb 3) and then it played.
And, yes, it didn't make mplayer play it.

Try this, replace pnm with rtsp it should work.
