  • Last time I checked Car Talk had stopped Real downloads, I'm glad they are back.

    When I wanted to record Hitch Hikers from the Beeb [bbc.co.uk], I used Realplayer and the vsound [xenoclast.org] tool to get wav output that I then converted to Ogg Vorbis. I use Debian, so you just apt-get the right bits and it all works, YMMV.

  • Do I understand correctly that mplayer can a) play RealAudio files and b) convert those files to .wav format? I haven't looked in a long time, but the last time I checked RA was a proprietary format I couldn't possibly hope to use with free software. I knew they had opened a lot of their code, but I thought the codec was still proprietary.

  • You'd think NPR et al would just stop being such dicks, and put up the mp3s to download.

    But alas, in the meantime, there is always the scraping.
