RealAudio Hosting FAQ

Where Do I Acquire The Real Audio Software?

In order to create and listen to RealAudio files, you will need to download and install the
RealAudio Player and RealProducer Basic free or visit the RealAudio web site to decide what is the best tools for you. RealAudio offers a full version of their software which affords better quality playback and may include other features.



How Do I Create Realaudio Sound Files?

In order to create RealAudio files, you will need to download and install the RealProducer Basic free or visit the RealAudio web site to decide what is the best tools for you.

For best results, encode the audio in the highest possible setting. Consult the software's documentation to find out how to make these settings. The RealAudio Encoder will eventually compress it down, so it is recommended to start with the highest quality source. Once you create the sound file, save it as either a .wav, .au, or .pcm file.



How Do I Turn My Sound File Into a Realaudio File?

Follow theses steps to create a RealAudio file:

  1. Open the RealAudio Encoder program.

  2. Select the file that you want to encode by hitting the "Browse" button.

  3. Select the sound file (e.g. .wav, .au, .pcm).

  4. Select the desired compression and file name on the right side of the screen. (e.g. "14.4 Mono",
    "28.8 Mono", "28.8 Stereo", and "ISDN")

  5. Select START ENCODING from the Encode menu at the top of the screen.

The original sound file will be scanned and copied to a compressed format. You have just
created an RA file.

** Important**
Do NOT use underscore ("_") characters when naming RM files as they will not be interpreted
correctly by the .ram file.



How Do I Upload The .RM File To My Website?

Upload the .rm file to the "real" directory of your web site in binary transfer mode. For further details look in our members area



How Do I Create The .RAM File?

You need to create a text file with a ".ram" extension. This text file contains a URL to the
realaudio file in the following format:


Note the "pnm:" prefix. Substitute your domain name and userID above. This file can reside in
the real directory of your account. The audio file name must have a ".rm" extension.
Once the .ram text file is created, save it and upload it to your web site in ASCII transfer mode.
We suggest using the same file naming convention. (e.g. "test.ram" will launch the "test.ra" file)



How Do I Create The HTML Code For A Real Audio File?

The HTML document does NOT reference the .ra file itself; it must call the .ram file which, in
turn, launches the RealAudio file as represented below.

<a href="http://(yourdomain.com)/real/(textfile.ram)">Listen to Audio</a>

If you reference the .rm file directly from your HTML code, the audio file may play, but you will
not benefit from the streaming audio effect.



How Do I Embed A Real Audio File?

You will also have the option of embedding a RealAudio file so that the .rm file will begin playing
as soon as the html page loads. This way, the web visitor will not have to click on a link to hear
your sound file.

To do this, make a copy of your .ram file and resave it as a .rpm file and upload to the same
directory as the .ram .

Then, reference the new .rpm within the page's html like this:

<EMBED SRC="yourfile.rpm" WIDTH=250 HEIGHT=35 CONTROLS=ControlPanel

More information for putting RealAudio files on your page is available at:

What Is Streaming Audio?

Audio that is transmitted over the Inernet and played while it is being received. This Technology permits listening and watching continuously as the signal is transferred to your system from a remote web site. It requires a high degree of compression to transfer audio or video (or both) at 28.8 Kbps or 14.4 Kbps speeds and still retain quality music and non-jerky video. Faster connection speeds are needed to improve quality substantially, and the speed must be maintained over the entire path between the transmitting and receiving systems.



What Is Audio On Demand?

It is audio media that allows the listener the ability to retrieve audio programs instantaneously.
