Re: [ARSCLIST] Converting Real Audio to wav
When I was working at Democracy Now we had a few pieces of audio that
only existing as Real Audio streams on remote servers. We used mplayer
with the -dumpstream option, worked well and fast, allowed us to
retain the original without transcoding. It's free and works as a
command line tool on many platforms.
mplayer -v -dumpstream rtsp://path/to/file.rm

I'm asking in the spirit of being able to adequately preserve
future acquisitions of archives.
Though I've not used it for that purpose, the Swiss army knife of A/
V converters is SuperC (the 'C' being the copyright symbol) from
eRightSoft. Unfortunately, they make one struggle to find the
download and the program is so powerful that it can be difficult to
set up, but I believe it will do the job. It is freeware, so you
risk only your time to try it - and we all have a great deal of that
on hand, of course. <G>
