I have a 33.6 modem and get fairly poor performance when listening to streaming audio with the Real Audio Player.  Is there anyway to download an entire stream or portion of a stream and then play it back from the hard drive on a Mac. Thanks

There are two ways of doing this.  The first is the easy way.  Purchase RealPlayer Plus, which supports buffered play (where it's downloaded to your computer first, then played)...

The second way, which only works sometimes, is to open the .ram file with a programme like BBEdit, and see what .ra file it refers to.  If it refers to an http://www.real.com/welcome.ra then you can fire up your web browser and download the .ra file to your hard drive.  Alternately, use GetRight for Java for Mac (Find it at http://www.download.com).  Unfortunately, if it is a pnf://pnf.real.com/welcome.ra then you are out of luck...  Try setting the real player prefs to a slower speed (make it think you only have a 28.8...).

I hope this answers your questions.
