Great distro!

I still occasionally need to boot into windows xp to use Streambox VCR to download Real Audio files, so that they come in faster than 'real-time', and then use Streambox Ripper to convert the files into mp3 or .wav

Are there any alternatives which can be used in Blag?

Many thanks!

You can do something like:

mplayer -dumpstream rstp://whatever.rm

It will create a file called stream.dump in your homedir in RM format. You can convert the file over to .mp3 with mencoder. This is just a guess, but perhaps something like:

mencoder whatever.rm whatever.mp3

To read the incredibly thorough mplayer/mencoder docs, do:

man mplayer

or check out /usr/share/docs/mplayer*
