When I type in a hurry, I don't always get the little nuances of capitalization correct. Yes, I know it's not an acronym.

But I hate Real Player also....which is why I constantly search for workarounds. Since more programs are written for PCs, I have it a bit easier.

I can record the programmes ok - if I want to hang around for an hour or two at a time recording stuff. Pain in the ass.

I was wondering if there was any easy way of just saving as an mp3 in Real Player. It seems not.

I hate Real Player. If you're trying to go back and listen to what someone's saying, to note a quote, and see if they're saying "at that time" or "in those times" Real Player drags you back three or four paragraphs, and you have to listen to the same 20 or 30 seconds of talk over and over again until you have the whole quote.

iTunes, on the other hand, is easily moved in tiny increments. On a Mac (not MAC, by the way - it's short for Macintosh, not an acronym), it's the perfect sound player, until anything better comes along.

Nice program perhaps, but Thompson needs something known to work on a MAC

I have a old version of Sound Forge. I set my sound card to "What you hear." then press record in Sound forge while listening to Real Player and Whalla you have a wave file.
You then burn the wave file as a normal Cd..

As Aye,

Phil.

I'm not sure about MACs, but in my Windows system, if you play a file, it IS on your machine....you just need to know how to find it.


    I do know that Real makes every effort to make it difficult to record stuff that is 'streamed'....but there are always ways. Whether there are easy ones, I don't know.

What WYSIWYG is suggesting is a way to intercept the stream as it plays....I simply don't know what works on a MAC. Google is your friend.

I'd use Total Recorder-- does that work on a Mac? It has settings to time the activity. If Real Player will also let you schedule a play, that should eliminate the hovering.

No, this is a radio station's output, and it's specifically designed to play on Real Player.

The only trick I know is to use something other than Real Player.

I have a couple versions of JetAudio, which will play Real Media and allow recording...but that may be only for PC.

Try this http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Video/Real-Media-Converter.shtml

I did a search for 'convert realmedia + mac'

Is it possible to save a file you play on RealPlayer - say, to save it as an mp3, in the case of a sound file?

I know you can record the whole thing using Audio Hijack or Wiretap (I'm using a Mac), but is there any way RealPlayer can do this itself without having to play the whole file and hover over it while it's doing it?
