I have a real audio file that I want to turn into an Mp3. I don't know how to do it, and quite frankly I'd rather have someone do it for me.

If you send it to me or post it online I could try converting it; I haven't found a program to do so (.rams use messed-up encoding that isn't supported by much software), but I could try recording the .ram straight through my sound card.

There is a piece of software called Streambox that's supposedly able to convert .RAM files (to .WAV I think, but that makes it a snap to go to .MP3). They ran into legal trouble with REAL, so they put up a disclaimer about it being illegal to use in the US. :olo

Haven't tried it myself, though, no promises. :(

Enjoy. The sound quality took a little hit but it's still very good. After I figured out the process, it only took a minute to process it after streaming it, so I can do more files pretty easily if you ever need them. I could get better quality, but that would take some tweaking, and I'd rather not spend the extra time.

Thank you Perndog. I don't care what everyone else thinks, I don't think of you as an effeminite weirdo.

I tried using Streambox once to make an mp3 file out of the audio of a movie file, but I couldn't figure it out :(
