.ram files that are 1-2kb in size probably won't work. As he said, .ram files are the streaming files you play on the internet.

Some will work, others won't. Same happens with the RealONE player if your not connected to the internet at the time.

.ram is kinda like the .asf files and the like. They just provide information on where the real media file is.

@LittleFoot: You'll find that the latest version of QT Alt. only updates Media Player Classic settings, Media Player Classic file association settings and some other minor improvments.

Therefore, there is no need to update the pack. This is has already been discussed 2 pages ago.

I'm looking for the v2 codec pack as well. :D

I don't think the traffic goes by the calendar month, since the v1 pack had exceeded bandwidth yesterday but is back available today.

ok guys first clarify a couple of things:
.ram format is from real media, only a small kb that you can edit with notepad. that's why you CAN'T watch it, because alone can't be played. it's a streaming format and you need to be connected.
.ra means real audio format and can be played with wmp10 with real alternative codecs.
.rm means real media (video) format, same from above.

@iwod why those encoders if you only want decoders? because there are a few people (like me) that wants to have an option in vdub and want to convert between formats. it's not matter of space or money because they are free and their size is not bigger than a few kb.

@moo

Second show me a prove that your Windows Media Player 10 plays rm files when you do clean installation with SP2 integrated without adding an other stuff (I mean extra players and so on), just codecs. Give me exact description your system, it shrinked by nlite, if yes how and so on. It's a lot of component

i don't need to show proves, sorry but does not worth for me if people believe what i say or not, what do i gain lying? anyway i can tell you that my unattended cd (biohazard project at the bottom) is slipstreamed with this codec pack and raverod's reg-suggestions and works perfect again (my browser is firefox).

This is false.
.Ram is a Audio/Video format for RealMedia. It can also be used for streaming video, as it can reach low bitrates. When you demultiplex .ram, you end up with . ra (audio) and .rm (video). If you have done some video editing, you would know this.

Asf, wma, divx and have even seen mpeg have been used for live-streaming. These are real files.

Windows Media Player uses a web plugin to decode .ram but has no access to .ram files saved to hdd. Windows Media Player Classic does access the codec to play .ram files off the hdd.

Thank you MHz for your comments. I think that I removed more components from XP, but my Unatend CD works fine too, but with KLite mega codecs set.

@SiMoNsAyS
I'm not FBI or IRS and this forum not for that. If you don't wont to share it's up to you.
BTW, I'm sorry too, because I'm running Windows XP pro with SP2 on Pentium 2 - 133 MHz, 32 MB RAM ,500MB HDD and also don't care belive me or not.

thanks.

@MHz don't wanna start a discussion about what a format can be and what not. just 1 thing i haven't found any .ram file that can be played "itself". ram extension means 'Real Audio Metafile', that is always streaming, don't matter if is video or audio. 'if you demultiplex .ram, you end up with . ra (audio) and .rm (video)', this is normal because the streaming can be audio+video. anyway that format is ALWAYS used on streaming.

@moo i'm sure you're not FBI or IRS (LoL) and it's not a thing about what share and what not (really LoL) because if you read a few posts back RaveRod shows how to associate those file extensions with WMP10 and as you can read on many posts (like mine) it can be played without problems, it's only that if some1 wants a screenshot to demostrate it... :huh:
if you have followed all the steps, it's a matter of your hardware (yeah i believe you :lol: )

@SiMoNsAyS
Let me enlighten you. Here is a link. Use right-click and save target as. You will download a 790kb file that can be played off the hdd.
I have a few hundred mbs of ram files. I also have a friend who loves realplayer and its format. He has gigs of it (movies and music clips). Realproducer, if I remember correctly, is the tool for editing this files, as they are audio/video files.
The fact is, that people use this format for everyday use, not just streaming.

btw, you may need windows media player classic or zoomplayer to play this file from the hdd.

as i said don't wanna start a discussion but an image is better than a word.
as you can see in the attached shot what you download is a .RM file (wayne-spin.ram.rm be sure to "show hidden extensions for known file types").

i'm currently watching it in WMP10. i think it's a vipper, isn't it? anyway nice black "stripped-white" car :lol:

i'm having problems capturing the overlay you know i think fraps can do it...

ok here is the promised screenshot, taken on wmp10 with fraps application.
you can think that it was watched with realone and there took the screenshot, but i don't have it installed. in the hd i own a lot of .mov files that are played perfectly too so yes, this pack is a MUST have!

edit: double clicking the file didn't work, there must be a little bug in raverod code but i think i've solve it. i'll post advances ASAP.

save it as a .cmd file and run it from runonceex, this will solve the icons bug and double clicking a real or quicktime file will play it on wmp10!! :thumbup :thumbup

Well, seems like you will not learn anything today. If you do not want to discuss the stuff that you post.

btw, if you can download it as I suggested, you would get a saved ram file.

it seems that i don't need to learnt anything from your "friendly" posts, so let discuss. if you take your time, you would see in my two images that:
first what you download it's a bad named .RM file and second, you can watch real and quicktime movies with wmp10 so now breath and go to check it, if my point is correct i'll wait a big SORRY.
anyway we need a 3rd tester so... any1?

edit: i should put this on big bold yellow caracters, because our friend @MHz needs a good probe, well download that file and hex edit it with your favorite hex editor. i'll copy the first lines...

.RMF..............PROP...2....[...[...._..........y.......R....y....MDPR..........}s..}s............
......y..Audio Stream.audio/x-pn-realaudio...V.ra......ra5

as you can see .RMF is Real Media format (.rm file) and as you can read, is a Stream.audio file :whistle:

I cannot believe weve had soo many posts about ram in this thread...ya know what, if it works for you in wmp10 fine, great...if not, get zoom player or mpc...its not like ANY media player is included...and its not like YOU cant add 500 media players if you wanted...so seriously, how about we get back on topic, this is about codecs and not about media players, if you wanna talk about this crap either make a new thread or do it in pm...seriously, a bunch of you SHOULD know better.

could someone post the cmd file needed to associate all those files in the codecpack with BSPlayer 1.02?



Also, does anyone else have a problem, when running Codecs.cmd, that a blank command window opens and stays open for the rest of RunOnceEx?
