    HOWTO: Real Audio/Video Streaming

    So many people have asked in the past: "How do I get real Audio/Video files to stream instead of wanting to download?"

    Here's how you do it:

    Creating a Real Media Streaming file
    • Create a folder called realaudio/ in your public_html/ directory. So, if your domain name is your.com , then your real folder will be www.your.com/realaudio/.
    • This is where you will put your .rm (the actual real audio/video file) and .ram (a text file that simply points to the .rm file, this is also the file that you link to in your website) files
    • This is an example: You must have a .rm file. This is your actual audio file. Call it firstaudio.rm for now. Now, upload it in BINARY to your folder called realaudio/.
    • Next, create a text file, and call it firstaudio.ram. Now, place the following line of text in the text http://www.your.com/realaudio/firstaudio.rm (Remember, the actual path must be your domain name in place of your.com)
    • Now, upload this file in ASCII to your folder called realaudio. Go to your web page, where you are going to create a link to the test file, and CREATE A HYPERLINK to: http://your.com/realaudio/firstaudio.ram (the TEXT file)
    • (Again remember, the ACTUAL path must be your domain name in place of your.com). Now save the page, and view it via the net. CLICK on the link, and it should play the file.

    BDH,

    Do you have any recommendations for tools to create the .rm files? Thanks.

    It's available from RealNetwork ... but at a [steep] price. One of the reasons I prefer using MP3 and or MPEG

    Well, I have heard of a tool that allows you to convert video and audio files to the real audio format. The program can be found here and is absolutely free. I can't be totally sure about it, but it seems to do its job.

    Here's one. I have not worked with it yet because I bought the real program to convert files then ran into this one. It got high rankings on several pc sites and the paid for version does more than the free one.

    Why would you use the .rm format to stream video? I've found that the .wmv format is much better for streaming if for nothing else other that the player for it is almost a standard for everyone out there. Plus converting to wmv is as simple as putting your video into Movie Maker. Real Player is also full of adware . For audio I'd also suggest .mp3 or if you want background music, it'd be best to go with .mid or .xm files.

    While we're on the topic of audio files, could someone tell me what they think would be the best way to record the following:

    Audio lessons available for download on my ministry's website. These would be Biblical passages and related lessons for English language learners.

    I don't know a thing about audio files and related software. I'd need to record these from my home computer and also receive files from other teachers.

    Also, is there a way that I could put together a conversation file from two different files (ex. Person A records two or three lines of dialogue Person B records the responses - I put them together into a "conversation")

    Sorry that my questions are illustrating how truly lacking my knowledge is.

    Any input would be great. Thanks!

    Hook a microphone into your sound imput on the back of your audio card (It should be right by a speaker port). After that start up Sound Recorder or another sound recording program (you'll probably want another ), and set your audio controls to the proper settings and record away. I'm almost positive that the audio file will turn out to be a .wav, but it's always possible it'll come out as something else. In any case, you'll probably want a compressed format like .mp3. So convert your audio file to that.

    Also, is there a way that I could put together a conversation file from two different files (ex. Person A records two or three lines of dialogue Person B records the responses - I put them together into a "conversation")

    Yea that's very possible, and very simple to do, just use a program to cut your conversation from both people into small sound bits, and put them all together in the order they should go.

    I probably sound kind of confusing, so you should probably search google for a tutorial of some sort. Hope that helps.

    If you have some cash to spare, I would suggest Authorware from Adobe. If not, then you can use a free tool that should get the job done and that can be download here

    The same way as you would an mp3 file: with a link or as a background sound in the <head> section of the HTML like so:

    Code:
    <head>
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    <bgsound src="Document.wav" loop="1">
    </head>

    For those of us who know nothing, how do you stream an MP3 of WMV video?
    Here's what I've got so far, and it does not work yet.
    <a href="video/tokoi1.wmv"><font color=blue>Tokoi-1</font></a>

    Later.........
    Oh. Never mind, I figured it out. I capitolized the actual file. Duh...................
    This downloads, then plays, the video. Not sure if there is some other way to do it.

    Yeah, always remember, file names are Case Sensitive

    This downloads, then plays, the video. Not sure if there is some other way to do it.
    In the <head> section, you can add this:

    Code:
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
    <title>Page bla bla</title>
    <bgsound src="video/tokoi1.wmv" loop="1">
    </head>
    The loop="1" is for how many times you want the sound to play. "-1" means forever.
