    Does anyone know how I could play real media files (.ram) and avoiding Real sotfware? I uninstalled it I want to avoid it like the plague
    :D
    I'd like to listen some radio stations like the Beeb and it's all about Real files.

    Thanks for your help

    What I'd like is to play the files with Winamp! Feasible?

    Try this :

    Never done it - just found it with Google.

    Edit - just read further it says you would need Real Player installed.

    Your only option would be to go this route and make sure you disable all 'phone home' components in RP an run Spybot to get rid of installed nasties.
