RAM files. what application is required to listen

  Mr. Chips 13:54 10 Aug 2004

I tried to download an interview from BBC Radio Kent, and found I had got a 1k .ram file on my desktop.

I assume that this requires some special application to access the sound file proper.

Any ideas please?

As far as I know you need "Real Player" for this extension type,, but the file should have been bigger than 1k, I take it you know that if you want to download audio/video files its best (in my opinion)to right click the link to the file and select "save target as" then you can save the file to wherever you want.hope this helps.

Thank you all for your quick response.

There is only one file I want to listen to, so I don't really want to commit to $10 per month to hear this one file.
Is there an alternative piece of software please?
