is there a converter for realone formats to wav??April 21, 2003 at 9:41 pm #1282
I don’t suppose this has anything to do with “mystery of the Mix”? :wink
I suppose you could give one of the (already discussed in another topic) RM to AVI/MPEG converters, and then strip the audio out from there.
The whole readon I didn’t just distribute the file as an MP3, is brichshelf doesn’t let you upload Mp3’s (and rightly so… imagine the mass abuse)
So I made it into a quick and nasty slideshow (with no ryme or reason to the order of the images… but some of them match up in an amusing manner).
I’d happily provide an MP3, if only I had somewhere to host it without KOing my geocities bandwidth in an instant…. but so many providers are MP3 shy these days.April 22, 2003 at 12:34 am #1288
Try rawavrecorder at http://www.geocities.com/rawavrecorder/
(download link at the bottom)
This program will take any RealMedia audio or video file and save the audio portion to a WAV file in the same directory as the rm file. It also extracts the audio from streams online. It will even record the audio of a live stream! Just stop the recording when you’ve gotten what you want. And be sure to rename the WAV before you record the stream again later. (This how I recorded Zirkusaffe’s appearance on the CBC last year, for instance)
One caveat, the RealMedia file plays in real-time meaning that a 30 minute stream of say the news, will take 30 minutes to capture the audio. Unless your audio needs to be in WAV, I would reccomend converting it to MP3 because the file sizes grow very quickly with uncompressed sound.
I use it almost on a daily basis to record and burn audio streams, and it works perfectly.

I’ve had a good look for my own reasons, and I don’t think there’s anything that converts RealOne to avi (or any other format). You can convert older .rm files using tinra, but I don’t think anyone’s cracked the RealOne format yet.
